Of course, I stayed with aluminum or alloy as they are called now, and still have my hand hack saw. If I make the switch now, I'd still use an electric saw, but one from a building supply that can be used for other projects.

In fact, I still have a ceramic tile cutter, whose blade will make an excellent carbon arrow cutter.
But the aluminum arrows still shoot straight for me. The electric tile cutter blade is sitting ready in reserve. It's all paid for from household jobs; I'm cheap you know.
Tile saw would work good and with the water keep the dust down. The guide isn't all that great as tile depends greatly on grout covering a multitude of sin. Still, I think it would work very well. Have to give it a shot some day.
