    Dan,

    Those pics are really cool.... I loved the cresting pics and the results are really good. I like the crested look for sure.

    I'm gonna have to try that this winter but i do have a couple of questions: Do you put a clear coat over the finished product?
    How hard is it to remove from a carbon arrow?

    you can clear if you want to. But a few quick wipes with a acetone soaked rag and Laqueir comes right off. But dryed laqueir is very tuff paint.

    Air-brush cresting?

    QSA, et al.

    I was going through all my kids' old RC Car stuff (getting it ready/sorted for e$ay, etc) and had a great idea (I think)

    What are your thought on using a gravity feed double action air-brush to spray on the base and solid coats of crests or even to do fades? Can the Bohning paints even be air-brushed?

    Seems like it's be a whole lot less wasteful that dipping, and the ability to do multi-color fades and blends, etc.

    Of course I'd rig up low-cfm a "down-draft" filter under the shaft to snatch up any over-spray. I would not want to mess up the bed of my lathe...

    Q's on using lathe to crest

    I have a Nova 3000 woodturning lathe with 4 jaw chuck a 4-pin jaw and was wondering what your thougths we on using this instead of a dedicated Bohning cresting machine.

    I do have a DC Variable Speed Leeson motor w/ a Digital Speed Controller, so I can go dial it from zero to several thousand RPM....

    Offset?

    Quick question, can you explain offset to me? i know what it is and what it is for, but how much offset does how much? or is there any real difference over reasonable distances?(reasonable for me; 50 yds and shorter)

    are you still watching this thread?

    Will the paint stick good to a carbon arrow? What prep will make it stick better, and what brand of paint works best for the fletching to glue to?

    I'm only going to do a solid White or Blaze Orange crest to glue my fletching to.....
