Default Building a home/archery shop.

I want to do more of my own work on my archery equipment so I'm going to build a little home/archery shop in my basement over the winter. I know the basics that I need would be a press, vise, levels and cut off saw. Any suggestions/recommendations that you all have in regards to additional items needed, brand of these items, where to buy, etc. would be helpful.

Here's a cut off saw I found on sale. Opinions?

Thanks.

Thanks.
The "TRUE SHOT" dual laser bow tuner may be something that you would benefit from, and I'm am selling them on ebay. Thanks, Travis.

A chrony is always good to have, fletching tools and hand tools also. Arrow squaring device, string server, scales (both, check lbs of bow and the weight of arrow and components). Extra eclips, shims, screws, and washers. I get a lot of things from my wholesaler, but some of the items I pick up at the hardware store. PM if you need something else.

Hey PM me and if your interested. I am in the same boat you are. But I am a couple steps ahead of you. I have a bowpress. I made mine and it turned out really well. I also have all of the plans for it or I might be willing to build you one. I also have some pictures of mine that I can dig out. It looks like the sure-loc Xpress.

Oh yeah from what I have gathered the Bitzenburger Dial-O-Fletch is one of the best fletchers on the market. I know cabelas sells it but you might be able to find it cheaper somewhere else. Also easton has a bow weight scale that is pretty cool measures your peak draw weight and holding weight. Also you might be interested that Easton has an arrow tunning book that is awesome online. I think they charge for it but I have found it free on google.

That's a good price for an arrow saw, but it doesn't have a dust chute. If you get it, you should rig up a vacuum to collect the dust.

Carbon fiber dust is very bad for your lungs.
