I know I've seen something similar posted before, and I can't remember if it was on this site or on a different one so I apologize if this is a repeat.  For someone who uses carbon arrows and doesn't cut them very often, this is a good and cheap alternative to an arrow cut off saw.  The Mighty Mite miniature table saw is available at Harbor Freight for about $35 and it includes a diamond blade.  I believe the saw is 14,000 RPM's.  I cut a dozen Black Eagle Vintage arrows yesterday and it did just fine.  I just drilled a small hole in the board at the nock end of the arrow that was level with the table on the saw to keep the arrow in a consistent location, and as you can see the rest of the setup was just held to my work bench with C-clamps.  It made good clean cuts with no issues.

Nice. First time I've seen the mini table saw set up.
I suggest clamping a shop vac hose near the saw and have it running when cutting carbon shafts. Carbon dust is not good to breathe.

Great idea for those of us that only need to cut a few arrows a year.[thumb]
Seems quicker than my Dremel Tool set up.

I have the harbor freight mini chop saw and I've cut hundreds of carbons with it. Still using the original blade, works great.

two4, how are you liking those bamboo shafts? I just got some in, seem relatively straight, like the natural heat treated color, spines all over the place for essentially 5/16” diameter(8 mm) shafts.

Are you able to hook straighten them or does one need to use heat?

Love the boo.  I use heat to straighten but they are pretty good and can sort them by weight and straightness.  Love the price.

That’s a nice setup. I don’t make it over to HF that often so didn’t notice the mini tablesaw. I have the chop saw for about 6 years?

Tritn, My cut off saw broke last year so I bought the same one you’re using now and it seems to be much better made. It’s made of all steel.

That's a great idea, tritn8.  That little saw could be quite handy for lots of projects.  Thanks for sharing!!
