Construction of the Saint Artemas combat arrow nock begins with the purchase of 1 1/4 inch diameter ramin wood doweling. This Asian hardwood is an inexpensive and dense wood readily available at most home improvement centers and hardware stores. The milling processes below are relatively simple but requires the use of a 10 inch table saw, several dado blade and milling sets, and a 10 inch carbide-tipped saw blade that makes a 1/8 inch wide cut. Also needed is a disk or belt sanding machine, a drill press and a few hand tools. There are several milling jigs that were manufactured before large scale production could begin, though small batches could be done a little more crudely by hand by a skilled woodworker without them.
