    1. These are the supplys you need to crest arrows the fast way. You can build a motor or use a cordless drill to turn the arrow and a short 4 inch 2X4 with a V notch cut in it to stabilize the arrow.
    But these are the tools I have.

    2. I use painters tape. It makes clean lines and comes off easy.

    4. White spray Lacquer (Ace Hardware) pints and quarts of paint are hard to come buy. To crest the right way you use a dipping tube.
    But done right spraying is just as good.

    10. And last my cleaning supplys, vane stripers, Acetone for cleaning glue off. Also wipes off any oil on them. You need a clean surface for the paint to stick to.

    11. You know those arrow holders in the arrow box you always trash. Now you need them to put you arrows in after you spray them to dry. They are free and work.
