Not sure. I used to have the Easton saw and it was great. Didn't seem all that expensive either. Before I got a saw I used to use a tubing cutter and deburr it. Not sure how that would work on the new arrow shafts though.

I picked up a 6" cut off saw($38.00) from Harbor Freight, 7800 rpm's it should work for both carbon/aluminum arrows. I haven't tried it yet but soon will.

The little mini Chop saw($25.00) from Habor Freight. Take the wood blade off and put a chop saw blade in. You can mount this on the work table, screw a 3' piece of angle iron 1 1/2X1 1/2 light stuff works fine. Glue or screw down a good yard stick, in the right place. You can buy a block or make your own, to hold the back of the arrow. Make block maybe 2" wide 1 1/2" of wood will be glued inside against the top and the one side, the gap will sit on the angle iron. Now if you drill a hole on the part that overhangs the iron, weld a nut on it and get a wing bolt that wil screw into it. Drill a 1/2" hole in the block, where the arrow will go. Now you can slide the block to the length you need to cut your arrows lock in place and cut. One more thing I place a triangle cut piece of 2X next to the blade to keep my hands on the shaft to turn the shaft without haveing to lower the saw blade. I bring the shaft to the blade not the other way.

Bought this one last year when it was $85.00. http://www.bowhunterssuperstore.com/...st-p-8968.html
It's a great saw. I wouldn't buy an arrow saw with less than 8,000 rpm because of cutting carbon's. It comes with a vaccum attachment. It also came with 2 "Spin Testers" which are required by anyone who wants to shoot fixed blade broadheads accuratly! I don't know if you could consider that cheap, but at the time it was the "Best Value", and still may be?
