    Can’t help with a direct comparison with a BowTime Machine, but from what I saw online of the press I’d say it’s pretty close in function to other presses with a twist or two.

    Here’s a pict of my homemade press

    Press w Heli-M

    The press fingers are independently adjustable to put equal pressure on both sides of the limb. I assume that your machine is simular.

    By adjusting the arms, equal pressure is placed on the limbs.

    You could take off the suppressor arm, but as long as the fingers are independently adjustable it’s not necessary IMO.
    Hope this helps some.

    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. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}

    I know I’m getting off track here, but I forgot what brand press you had.

    Here’s how EasyPress handles the draw stop issue. They sell a shorter arm. Easy press does show online that they use the limb tips on Mathews bows so here’s a few pics – you can compare to your press.
