    Default DIY Arrow Saw

    Thought I'd share my most recent Frankenstein project. Used a Harbor Freight rotary tool, Rockler Woodworking jig pieces and some spare things I had laying around. Tell me what you think, questions welcome.

    Very nice sir. My dad and I picked up one of their mini-chops to use for a saw. Still have to rig up the ruler/guide, but plan to put it to use hopefully this weekend. I like the bearing you have in place for the nock and the slider for the length adjustment is nice!

    Very nice, that's much more intricate than what I did. I bet it works great!

    DP, I also got one of the mini chops from Harbor, one thing I did do though is change the little metal saw out for a 2" grinder wheel. It works much better for the carbon arrows; not as much vibration...

    For sure, I wouldn't think of using the metal blade for cutting the carbons. Cut-off wheel only! Pretty excited to use it, just need to get something in place to set the proper length so everything is consistent.

    Nice Diy job andy_camping, I too love making my own equipment. I made an arrow saw a few years back. I made it out of a piece of angle iron. A sewing machine motor and a presser foot. Works like I bought it out of a store.

    Hey, I noticed this thread got moved... why don't we create a DIY sub-forum in the Bow setup section? Just a thought

    Pm Bfisher, and ask him if he would. I don't have that power.
