    What did you guys use then for your nock receiver?
    Did you take a nock turning tool that comes with some nocks and insert that in the space once you removed the part that the track slide comes with?

    This is what I did . . .

    I took the red piece out of the clamp assembly - it should "pop" out of the gray portion of the clamp assembly - and cut it down carefully to leave behind only the red "tube" portion (closed on one end, open on the other). You can see in my first pic that it is full-length, but then I cut it shorter so that the depth of it would line a nock up nicely for measurements. It "press-fits" (a person could glue it, I guess) back into the gray portion quite nicely. I used the popsicle stick piece to support it - and this way I did not need to glue it, in case I need (decide) to change it out for whatever reason in the future. It is pretty sturdy and working fine as it is, so I don't think I'll be changing it.

    Hope that helps - have fun building your saws, guys. It was great of Team4STA to post the idea of using this clamp!

    Thanks....Its so exciting to see all of the interest in this project. Mine gets a lot of use. On th nock receiver mine is screwed in on the inside of the receiver. You really should cut down the length of it or else on some arrows it will catch the edge of the arrows.

    I've been putting this off way too long. I just picked up the grinder today and I'm surprised how quiet it is. No more excuses. It will be built by the end of the holiday weekend!

    I was reading this thread and looking at pics. Maybe you could take a small key chain type retractable tape measure and attach the zero end flush with the cutting edge. Then take the body of the tape measure and attach it to the sliding clamp. That way its closer to the shaft, retractable, and just innovative for a DIY'er.

    Trying to put the 3" cutoff wheel on the 10000 rpm grinder. Too much gap and the wheel will not go past the threads onto the smooth part of the shaft. Anyone else use this motor? I suppose I can find a collar to extend out that far but that would still not be ideal.

    Never mind, figured it out. Realized just needed another nut than what was provided

    Man that's a great looking saw. I just enginered a cut off arrow saw myself. I removed the Weston 8,000 rpm motor and got a small miter saw from the same store. Works nice and cost a grand total of $24 to put me back in business.

    Here's my adaptation. I had everything around so I spent a grand total of $12 for the clamp. I took a few pics of the process in case anyone was interested.

    Push the pin out to remove the handle

    Pull handle off the rod
    100_0119 (Small).JPG

    Pull end of clamp off
    100_0120 (Small).JPG

    Pull red piece off
    100_0121 (Small).JPG

    Cut nock receiver from red piece
    100_0122 (Small).JPG

    While I was at it I just cut the top off the gray piece so I could use is to hold the rod in place
    100_0123 (Small).JPG

    Push nock receiver into adjustable end of clamp. I cut my test arrow without using a nock as it rolls smoother for me.
    100_0124 (Small).JPG

    I used a solder gun to cut off the top of the red piece to use as an arrow rest next to the blade and sanded it smooth. Used the gray bottom to attach it to the board.

    Mounted the dremel with zip ties, u bolts would be nice but I had none. Then I lined up the clamp and rest so the blade would only cut the arrow wall. Screwed clamp to board.

    Finished cut, dremel set around half speed.

    Maybe add some paint and dress it up a little. Used the 10000 rpm Harbor freight saw.

    Love this idea and adapted to my current mini chopsaw setup. I am taking it one step further to smooth out the spinning of the arrow. Still in progress but you get the idea.

    Been wanting to do one of these for a while, what are you all doing to bring the shaft to the blades? Trying to picture how you would have the blade running at full rpm and then bring the shaft into it and be able to get a spin on it.
