Going to bite the bullet and step up my arrow building.
A dozen arrows lasts me a long time.

Looking for recommendations on an arrow spinner for woodies.

Thanks.

A little imagination and a trip to your local hardware store. You can easily put together something that's inexpensive and effective.

I concur with Mr. lamb... But, I really love my old Dixion for attaching Broadheads perfectly.

  For a spinner nothing works better than 4 marbles glued to a wooden block.

I just roll them down the incline of my writing leafs of my desk.  You can see every little wobble.  Frank

I guess it depends on what you are hoping to see. Shaft straightness, tip on straight and true ?

Two points of contact (front and back) means everything between the two can be crooked as heck. Spinners are good for finished arrows / checking head alignment. Flat table tops are better for finding crooked shafts using non- fletched shafts.

My opinion anyways.

My kids have a ping pong table.
Thanks for the pointers.

Generally my arrows are not the cause of my failures...

I take them to the wood shop and use the top of one of the table saws. Course I get funny looks when I break out my Ace straightener or stand there tweeking the shafts by hand. Once their made up I use an old Zwickey Delta and spin them on a piece of glass.

I made one out of shop scraps and some bearings out of an old inline skate.  I use it to check broadheads but mostly to straighten arrows with a roller. 20171024_122850.jpg

I don't think checking for wobble is a problem.  I wonder if he is not wanting to spine his shafts instead of "spin" them. Ace makes a nice, compact spine tester.
