Default Anyone cut their own carbon arrows?

Instead of investing in a arrow saw package what do some of you cut carbon arrows with? I am thinking a dremel but I am sure some sort of jig will have to be built to ensure the cut is a 90 degree one.

Or do most of you just buy your size and have no worries?

I made a jig for my harbor freight mini cutoff saw. Many others here have done the same and have detailed instructions of their jigs. After I cut them, I square up the end of the arrow with a G5 Arrow sqauring device and haven't had one yet that spun bad.

Buy the right tool for the job, I did a few years ago and it's fast and easy and it gives you great cuts everytime.

I made a jig for a drimel out of angle iron works as good as that noisy arrow saw.

Yup, I did the same thing as Bigpapascout and rigged something up to use my Dremel tool for it. For the amount of times I cut arrows, doesn't make sense to spend the money on a cutoff tool made specifically for that. This way, I have a MULTI-TOOL

Check out Weston Supply @ www.westonsupply.com.
They have remanufactured arrow saws for killer cheap prices. I bought one and it works great!

I bought my brand new saw on ebay for under 30$ to the door. Buy a new one.

Would a place like Dicks sell cut arrows to specific size?
