hey anybody got a bow time machine and if so has anyone encountered an issue with the string suppressor it seems that when you press it in the btm the screws is making the axle twist before the other side of axle touches the finger on the press my other question is can i remove the string suppressor’s and press the bow ????? is it gonna be safe
Yes the press tips fit in the center of the ident on one side and between the screws on the other.
Keep in mind that I don’t own an MR, but I’ve pressed the Outback, Switchback. Reezen 6.5, Z7Magnum, and Heli-M using that procedure without problems. I’m careful to make sure the fingers are adjusted properly before I start to compress the limbs and I always compress slowly and keep an eye on the limbs to make sure everything is going correctly. (call me anal but I figure careful is better than damage – I can afford careful – damage – not so much)
The pressure points when adjusted by the fingers put equal pressure on both sides of the limbs and the limbs stay square (don’t twist). I’ve never taken a bow completely down nor do I have any experience with the split limb models.
Bulk of my work is changing strings, peeps, timing, servings – normal maint. The hex cap screws tapped into the base of the press fingers adjust each finger individually. It’s doesn’t take much to relax the bow to do normal maint.
The adjustable rollers hold the bow in place so when I release the arms, the bow doesn’t fall out of the press.
I’m sure someone could give you a definitive answer about the MR.
Maybe call Mathews directly???
Haven’t called them lately but they’ve been very helpful in the past.
