I use the Apple arrow saw. THey are not that bad. I have heard of many people useing dremals and such but don't recommend it. Good saw will have a min of 7200 rpm.

I actually use a small bench grinder and replaced the stone with 3" cutoff blade. Made my own adjustable measuring device too for it.

I went to Dicks today and bought 12 Carbon express heart attacks and since I have a compound mitre saw? chop saw mounted on an adjustable bench I used it to make the cuts......So far so good.

Well I have 12 new arrows cut exactly the same, I put the new rage mechanicals on 6 of them and the practice heads on 2, a turkey blade on 1 (just in case) and field tips on the rest.......Hope these new Rage blades work ok....!

Arrow saw. Don't get used much anymore, but it's the right tool for the job & I'm not getting rid of it.

Dremel with a small cut off wheel for me with a homemade arrow holder. Mine runs 35,000 rpm. I dress them up inside and out by hand with some very fine emery paper (800 I think)

Splintering will happen when cutting with anything larger in my opinion. These aren't wood ya know.



Be careful of the dust...not good on the lungs to enhale.
