    I use an apple arrow saw. Used to use a Dremel, and it worked just fine. The arrow saw is faster, and a bit cleaner cut though.

    I'd love a real arrow saw but that is a lot of money for something I will only use a few times. I'm going to try it on the cheap first and if that doesn't work out I'll save my pennies.

    The one I built was only $8. to $10. dollars. It was mostly stuff I had around the house. I think this is cheap enough huh.

    used a Harbor Freight one myself. measured, taped the cut area, cut slow and steady, cleaned the cut and go to go. cut around 50 arrows first time with no problems. Cost $25? for saw versus $50 at local Gander Mtn.

    I was thinking this one would work great. A simple support or pivot point at the rear of the shaft & your in business. $29.99

    Don't know if your asking me but...
    Yup! that's exactly the one I use. You can upgrade to a better name brand cutting disc if you like but I have not had any problems w/ the generics. Remember ...go slow.

    That does look pretty nice. Of course that would make one more thing I have to find room for. LOL
