Aluminum flat nocks?

I am going to change over my plastic nocks to aluminum and then mill them out to make moon nocks out of them. By gluing them in first I can be assured that the nock doesn't twist as it dries. That happened to the last arrows I bought and now the nocks are all funky. Anyone know where I can get flat aluminum nocks to fit Easton XX75 2216's? I could make them myself I suppose but for a buck a piece it's not worth turning on my lathe.

A lot of people are doing this now. I'm using some plastic and some aluminum. A round file does the trick and t hey you can polish them up. Ask Arrowhead.

Flat aluminum for the 2216's is a problem. I don't know of any at this time.

Looks like I'm going to be making my own. Oh well, that's one of the fringe benefits of having my own machine shop!
