Hafting Resin (Pine-Based Glue)

How to use Thunderbird Atlatl’s Hafting Resin, an all-natural, pine-based glue which is similar in use to epoxy. Hafting Resin is available for sale for $6 for two 20 ounce blocks in our shop.


This pine resin based adhesive is heat activated for attaching dissimilar materials that have different coefficients of expansion like metal or stone blades to wood, bone or ivory handles. This formula was developed originally using traditional and natural materials for attaching stone points to wooden arrow or dart shafts. The bond is able to withstand shear forces; tough yet flexible it adheres well to many different materials, as long as all parts are dry. It forms a durable composite when used in conjunction with fibers as long as the fibers are thoroughly saturated and all air is pressed out of the joint. A broken joint can be reheated and attached again and again as often as necessary.

We introduced this glue this past year at various shows we traveled to and have had many positive reports. One customer suggested our new hafting resin has some “mojo”. We don’t know about that but we know it has been tried and tested by ourselves and customers and it seems to be doing a good job!

  1. I am wondering why it would cost me $20.00 for shipping when your shipping chart tells me it cost $6.00 if I am only buying small items and no darts or atlatl’s. I would like to buy (5) of your Hafting resin packs at $ 5.00 each, but when I hit shipping. It tells me to go to change price at the bottom of the page and hit change ,but there is no change button at the bottom of the page to change the cost of the shipping. Please let me know how I may change the cost to the correct shipping price.

  2. Hey I hope this is my long time friend. I had bought some hafting resins from U years ago. You also had made me some roughed out Ram rods. I was wondering if you still do that?
