I have a ACE 101 Spin Spine tester, I noticed that the newer versions have center support to set calibration. What is used on the 101 for that purpose this one does not have anything?

i can't answer your question but i suggest calling Bob at ACE. i've talked to him and his wife several times at their booth and they are very nice to talk to.

Jeffg, I'm guessing that by setting calibration you mean either zeroing out the setting, or how you apply weight to the center of the arrow. With the 101, both are done with the 2lb weight cylinder.  feel free to ask further if that doesn't answer your question, or as Eddie suggests you can call Bob; he was very patient and helpful with my questions.

The newer models have a support under the center of the shaft to hold it up until you zero the the scale for the particular arrow. On mine the arrow is only supped at the ends

This is kind of hard to explain, particularly since I haven't used mine in a few years and it's disassembled, but i'll give it a go:

First, to zero it out, as I interpret it, you need to adjust the face of the spine tester (the main plate with your calibrations) so that the indicator reads at zero when at rest. There are a few different holes to change the position of the plate when setting it up; most adjustment though is done with the knob and the black lever on the lower right hand side.
Once that's set, you use that lever to lower the weight to where it BARELY touches the shaft... be sure it's not applying any weight at this point, or it will not read correctly. (I like to have good light, looking at it at eye level, till there'e no more light visible). 
Then, you lower the weight onto the shaft, which will give you the reading. 
 
I hope this helps rather than making it more confusing. Let us know if it's working for you.

That is what I thought but I see other ace spin spine testers with a support to hold the shaft up while you zero it  then the support drops down. I guess the 101 was before that idea. 
Thanks for your help.
