Try to get or handplane either hornbeam or hickory (instead of hronbeam) in 1/2 tapered as the ones you have.

Very good bone damage.

Yes I think I will try maybe 1" longer shafts.

This is fun stuff isn't it.

Thats some power you got there to be shooting through such metal. I see what you mean about the metal being ductile or not. It really effects penetration. Thats a nice head jaro, how much does it weigh? How thick is a car door?

The head Thimo has is 38 gram. The big one might be 50 gram, but I havent weihged it. Car door tin is thinner than this metal sheet.

Greasing the points should surely increase the penetration through the steel plate.
