        Comments about Table Top Endless Loop String Jig:

        The swivel bolt keep loosening and/or tightening depending on which way you turn it so you need to keep wrenches handy. If you set up the jig and align all the posts and measure the distance from the single post to the outmost post and then rotate the double posts 180 degrees I get a 1/4" difference in length. It took making several strings who's lengths varied before I discovered this.

          Comments about Table Top Endless Loop String Jig:

          This is an addition and correction to a previous recent review. I was very critical of this product's slippery posts which lack heads or shoulders and its shallow string grooves, resulting in slip-off or slip-down during string building. This also forced the string builder to pile up string for if the strand count was too high. I indicated that I would modify this product, likely voiding the warranty. I discovered a way to modify it without damaging it in any way. To improve this device use anvil pruners or a razor to snip six 1/2" sections of rubber pcv tubing (automotive). Dampen/lubricate the each post and push on a section so that it is 1" down, this will provide a shoulder. Now repeat the process putting the remaining three section on each post with the tops even to provide a head. This will leave a flat 1/2" gap for wrapping string while limiting slip-offs or slip-downs. With this modification so cheap and easy I would change my rating of this device to four stars and recommend it to friends.

          • Make Endless Loop Strings

          Comments about Table Top Endless Loop String Jig:

          I have made hundreds of endless loop strings for recurves and longbows and I have to give this strong, professional looking device mixed reviews. I bought it specifically to make short high strand count crossbow strings, and it is very slippery and difficult to use for that purpose. It has very small and shallow string grooves with no head to prevent slip-off, and shoulders to prevent slip-down. This means that you must very carefully pile up the successive wraps instead of lining them up, and the result for a string over 18 strands is not up to my standards. If this device had scaffolding nails at the ends of the uprights it would be perfect, and I will have to modify this device before it will be suitable for my use. Its quality and strength are such that for me it is worth the trouble of modifying it, even though it will void the warranty. Most users would likely be unable or unwilling to do that. I did make a serviceable crossbow string of 26 strands with it, but not without a lot of frustrating setbacks. It is so strong that as long as you clamp it to a hard surface there should be little or no stretching as you build your strings.

            Comments about Table Top Endless Loop String Jig:

            easy to use, directions came with the jig, or you can go to the web site for more info. Being portable is a real plus. Put the parts in a small box with your string materials and place it in a drawer or in your trunk. All you need is a board or table top to clamp it to. It would be nice to have two swivel posts, but that is not a big deal. I thought the construction was good. Well made for what it is intended for.

                  I have not needed a string, so I have not used it, but it looks good. I would rather have two of the adjustable ends, but since I will make small quantities of strings, I think it will be OK. I like the idea of using my bench instead of storing a board just for strings. It comes with the C clamps required, so that was a pleasant surprise.

                      Comments about Table Top Endless Loop String Jig:

                      This string jig is very poorly built. It came out of the box with bent post and messy, crooked welds. Even the two string post on the swivel arm do not line up. The bases are too small to be stable even when clamped very tight to a board or table. I found that when trying to wrap the string material the swivel arm will bend resulting in a shorter string that you started with. The string post are too short to clear my serving jig. It hits the cross bar when serving the string loops. I will be returning this.
