Can some one tell me how the spears are attached? I see they are separate but do you need to drill hole like Xystons or is there a groove the spear sits in?

Thank you!!!

And the material can be a little hard and even brittle. Make sure you support the hand you are drilling from below so you don't break it off! Happened to me last night because I was impatient and did not properly support the hand being drilled. I like using separate brass rod lances and spears, but drilling can become a chore.

Ok thanks people. I might look at other ranges as this dsounds not so easy. Onto Bueda I reckon!!

Don't give up on Donnington yet! Figures are first rate, they just need a little time for spears to be applied.

Since I started drilling hands for ranges such as Xyston and Donnington, I now remove cast on spears for many other ranges and drill the hands if possible. I think the look of the spears and their generally better robustness makes the extra work worth while.
