Aerovane Jig offers: High precision: up to 1/72 of a degree
Aerovane Jig’s index is made of titanium hard coated CNC aluminum matted with ABEC#5 ceramic ball bearing for perfect alignment and smoothness. The matched support hook is also supported by 2 ball bearings which allowing the arrow to be fully supported and for smooth operation. For arrow holding, a triple O-rings plus a wedge design is used to ensure perfect arrow holding while fletching. The duel magnet design allows precision angle adjustment. Each magnet are supported by independent 1mm per turn brass machine screw which can be further tightened by hand for fine adjustment and locked down via an allen key.
For 2012, there are quite a few improvements we did to the Aerovane Jig. We have change the material of a few parts from brass to stainless; the hook knob, the depth screw are the two seems to have the most issue with customer who use their tools seriously. With stainless parts, they are that much more durable. For long term durability and be able to maintain the precision of the index, we added an index plug. So in case the index ever fell loose due to wear , the only thing one need to do it is to replace the plug which will bring the jig back to the 1/72 degree or better in precision. Last, with the adjustable chuck and hook ready, it is obvious we need a way to level the jig so, a bulls eye level is now part of the jig and an arrow water level is also availed. All these improvement do not come cheap, but we only added $25.00 to the bare jig price, the bare jig is now retail for $124.95. Everything should be available by December 4th 2011, so it can be a good addition to your Christmas list.

In any bow set up and low viscosity gluing environment, precision waterlevel to make sure the arrow is level is a must. That is why Firenock offers a precision water level. It is machined Aluminum, 4 ball bearing, and a brass knob. It is an open design so it can be position on an arrow from the side without need to thread from either end of an arrow. The compact design make it extreme portable. When the counter balance brass knob is at all deploy, the water level is significantly stable.
Aerovane laser Alignment modules was developed to make vane refletching a single vane and alignment simple and fool-proof set up on Aerovane jig simple and fool-proof. The high precision one 3 lens optics system one which has a final line with of 0.25 – 0.55mm. To achieve perfect alignment, best precision and ease of use, the Aerovane laser modules are designed to be mounted about 75 mm right above the Aerovane Jig’s chuck via the 2 holes with its 2 screws, with which the laser line will span from the base of the clamp alignment line to the valley of the hook set at the top of the jig. With these optional laser modules, perfect single vane re-fletching can be done via any vane that is already installed on the arrow by eyes (which is believed to be 1/4 to 1/16 of a degree accurate). With these laser line alignment tools, one can precisely make perfect alignment from a perfect center line. The line laser modules will give a crisp red line on the arrow even shine through the clamp and vane are on the jig through between the clamp and on the vane when it is on the jig for perfect alignment.

Are you kidding me ??? A laser and water level ? $799.00 ?? I can be fairly certain in saying that the arrows fletched with the Aerovane will not shoot any better than my arrows fletched with my trusty BITZENBURGER jig (under $100). What is bowhunting coming to ? Unfortunately I guess the money game will undoubtedly creep into EVERY facet of our lives.
Zfowl, I also use the Bitzenburger jig which works great. Would you by any chance know if and who makes 1/16″ wide double faced tape designed for fleching. It works great, leaves a longer time for alignment and contact then dries or hardens fast. Am running low on tape may have to go back to fast fletch. PS: Stopped using a compound many years ago. Almost stopped shooting because of it (lost interest) took all the fun out.
If you only use ordinary vane, the bitz will be more than fine, but when you are using airfoil based wing which allow you to shot in 30 miles per hours wind, be able to bow up to 550fps, and be totally quiet. Then you need jig like this. For those who shots 400fps and up and able to do robin hood at 50 yards at 25mph wind is what this system is for. BItz has a built in inaccuracy of 5 to as high as 15 degree tolerance, this jig has a 1/72 of a degree. Just like not everyone need a Lamborghini, for need a gun to do a 1.5 miles. But for those who wanted that, it is what they had been asking for. FYI, the 2011 version are about all sold out. the 2012 version will be ready 2 weeks before Christmas.
