    Best crester I've ever used - period!

    I've been making arrows for over 20 years, and this is by far the best I've ever used!

    I really am disappointed with the tool. "O-rings" are not in sufficient enough supply to keep adjustment wheels in place and as a result the wheels randomly move along the arrow shaft. At times while painting the arrow shaft would be thrown from the jig. Very expensive, poor quality control.

    Quite a little gadget

    Pros

    • Easy Setup

    Cons

    • Motor A Little Weak

    Best Uses

    • Arrow Cresting

    Comments about SpinRite Crester:

    The crester came with instructions that seemed a little vague, telling about all the adjustments and how you should play around with them to get best results. However, once you do start adjusting, it becomes fairly obvious how it needs to be set up. Take time to straighten your arrows before cresting - it will pay off. Don't rely on crester to compensate for bent shaft. Keep grease off the drive wheel and arrow, otherwies it can slip. I used a little alcohol. Experiment a little with different brushes and coating techniques. Make sure paint is mixed well for best coverage. I did a dozen arrows using red, black, yellow, and silver. They turned out great!

      Comments about SpinRite Crester:

      This cresting machine is fantastic. I shoot wood arrows and the can be difficult to crest due to imperfections. The stabilizer wheels can be moved to focus on one area to eliminate shaft wobble. Love it!!!

        At first I had some issues with the tension but these things are hand made it's bound to happen. I contacted the company and I can't say enough at how pleased I am. I sent it to him he made adjustments sent it back to me all within 1 week and it works better than ever. Talk about great service. The guy who took care of the issues was very helpful. These things are custom made and you have to expect a flaw. But he fixed the problems and it works so well. I highly recommend this product and company. Great job. And thanks again to 3 rivers archery. Customer for life for sure.

            Great Product! When I received the crester it had a broken bolt in one of the shafts. I emailed the manufacturer and with a very quick response I received the new parts. I was up and running in a couple days. My cresting has improved exponentially with the use of the SpinRite Crester.

                    Comments about SpinRite Crester:

                    I make my own wooden arrows and have for a couple of years now and wanted to dress them up with my own cresting. That was the reason for the purchase. The set up was easy. I was able to put some rough cresting on some of my practice arrows immediately after I unpacked it. I did note that the end idler wheels towards the arrow stop side kept moving into the corner of the machine. The instructions said that you should try to keep the wheels out of the corners or it could damage the wheels. In any event, I couldn't seem to keep it from happening until I added a couple of nitrile o- rings and that stopped it from wanting to slide towards the corners. I was wondering why they wouldn't simply put a couple of O-rings in there to lock up the idler wheels. Anyhow, after that I did some cresting and all worked well. You need good brushes for sure to get the best lines. Overall the machine works great and I will get my use out of it.

                    This is the first cresting lathe I've ever had and I love it. The small size is nice and compact and it works well on a variety of arrow sizes. There's a small learning curve at first but once you get used to making some minor adjustments to balance the arrow, it works like a charm.

                        If adjusted properly,if wood shaft is not completely straight it will take all the wobble out.
