kwilson16,

I just bought the American Arrow Saw 8000 Ultra with the dust collectorfrom Bowhunters Super Store. Just finished cutting and building a dozen Goldtip CAA 400s. The saw did a nice job(I recommend paying the xtra $20-$30 and buying the upgraded model 8000 instead of 5000 with the dust collector, save your lungs, and a faster motor).Make sure that you are very precise when you place the tapemeasurerbelow the arrow holder. You want the indexing of your arrow lengths as accurate as possible. I'm very satisfied with the productwith the exception of the arrow spinners that come with it, basically useless as they don't spin freely like a Pine Ridge arrow spinner. IMO, for the price and home use beats an Apple forvalue. Good luck.

I made a cutoff saw for less that $30 . Bought a mini chopsaw at Harbor freight and improvised a little . Bought an abrasive blade to replace the one that came with the saw .

I use the 8000 rpm model and have had zero problems.It is recommendedby most carbon arrow manufacturers not to use less than 8000 rpm.

They say the faster the blade is turning the less fiber damage.
