High Precision - Accurate up to 1/72° per Fletch
One of the main features of the Aerovane Jig is the Aerovane Jig Index Plug to ensure high precision Fletching even with bare eyes. The index plug is a machined piece of Aluminum and level 3 Anodized for precision and durability and it is supported by two ABEC#5 ceramic ball bearings on the jig body for smooth operation and perfect alignment within 1/72° accurate. Meanwhile, the arrow support hook is equipped with 2 ball bearings for precision and smooth operation. For the arrow chuck, it is equipped with Triple O-rings system plus a wedge design to ensure perfect arrow holding while fletching. On the jig body, the clamp mount is a dual magnet design which each magnet is supported by an independent 1mm per turn CNC machined screw In this way, the magnet height can be fine adjusted and it can be locked via an Allen key. With the above design, this jig will give you the confident to fletch your arrows with repeatable accuracy.
Versatile arrow compatibility
For those who want maximum flexibility, an adjustable chuck and hook system is available as an optional accessory to cover 0.115" to 0.667". The video for installation of adjustable chuck and hook is available below.
The Aerovane Jig comes with a 3 index as its standard configuration which allows one to fletch either a 2 or 3 vane configuration perfectly. The 3 index provides index points at 0, 120 and 240 degree. Firenock also offers a 7 index which the index points are 0, 60, 90, 120, 180, 240, and 270 degree. The 7 index allows one to do different vane configurations, even for crossbow bolts. Below are 2 examples of 4 vane configurations fletched with the 7 index.
A lot of magnetic based clamps are available for sale on the market, however none of them can satisfy today's archers and can give you excellent fletching results. In response to this issue, Firenock built Aerovane Clamp. Aerovane Clamp works similar to other clamps, but Aerovane clamp is made of high precision die cast 303 stainless steel and then machined with a straightness up to 0.001". For the pivot point, Aerovane Clamp is installed with zirconia ABEC#5 Ceramic ball bearings for smooth operation, precision and durability. The clamp extra thick spring system with self alignment capability gives a good hold of any vane even if the vane does not have an air channel like Aerovane does. Comparing with other clamps, Aerovane Clamp is shorter in order to fit today's popular short vane (as long as 3.7"). With Aerovane Clamp, perfect straight fletching every time is made possible and can be done easily.
Note: Aerovane Clamp is a straight clamp which can do offset via slide hook, but cannot do helical fletch. Aerovane Jig can work with clamps such as Bitzenburger, Grayling, or Martin. Below is an Aerovane Jig with a helical and a straight Bitzenburger clamp with modification (the clamp needs to be shaved from the top in order o fit on Aerovane Jig dual magnet system).
In production environment, 4 way adjustment neck may not be necessary. Thus Firenock offers solid 303 machined stainless steel neck to mount your Aerovane Jig easily on a fletching turntable. The 4 way adjustable neck allows you to achieve optimum angle and position while you are using your Aerovane Jig on a coffee table or a workbench and the solid black anodized Aluminum base aims to provide stable operation at home or in the field.

Aerovane Arrow Water Leveler
In any bow set up especially using low viscosity glue, a precision water level is important to ensure your arrow is level. That is why Firenock offers Arrow Water leveler. It is a piece of machined Aluminum with 4 ball bearings and a brass knob. It has an open design so you can put the leveler on your arrow easily. The 4 ball bearings allow the leveler to hold and swing smoothly on the arrow without wobble and make finding the balanced point easy.
Laser Alignment Module for Perfect Re-fletching
Aerovane Laser Alignment Module was developed to make alignment, fletching and re-fletching easy. The high precision 3 lens optic system of Laser Alignment Module emits a straight thin red laser (0.25 - 0.55mm width), thus you can check whether your jig is set up correctly and your vane is aligned perfectly with arrow and clamp. The laser also allows you to re-align an arrow as well as to re-fletch your vane with your bare eyes only with an accuracy up to 1/4 to 1/16 of a degree.
