I change the blade to a grinding wheel and have at it. Never had a problem. I shoot the 3D targets in the hoofs, ass, neck, eyeballs, and all surrounding foliage without any adverse effect. Don't let the archery snobs lead you down the path of buying some fancy arrow facing doo-hicky; doesn't matter. You could cut the arrow on a 30-degree angle and the insert would still be parallel. A tube inside a tube with tight tolerances will always be parallel. Sorry, trying to get to 20 post so I can list my bow. I'm more of a lurker, since I don't know anything. Disregard everything. Happy New Year! :wink:

If the op doesn't know anything it would seem he'd ask questions.

When you post your sale page I'll be sure to add a copy of your opening post to it.

Seriously, I do want to thank all those who contribute to the forum. I have learned a ton after reading hundreds of post over the last 2+ years. I have made a draw board, bought a press from a DIY maker on this forum, bought my bow on here, learned to bareshaft tune, re-served my string, etc. My dad told me that you never learn anything when your lips are moving, so I just sit back and try to absorb. Sorry I have not contributed more. But sometimes, people should just listen more than they talk. Thanks.

Meh, just use a Dremel to cut your arrows, I always thought the shop charged too much to cut my shafts($2)

Just kidding, don't use a Dremel to cut arrows

If you snap em over your knee real fast you can get a decent break, then use a file the straighten the rough edges and BAM you have it!

Just because some think he's not all there, it just might be OK.. I've done some things making my arrows over the years & it turned out just fine.. They are square & spin perfect b/4 they get shot though.. Oh, I use Aluminums.

Bolt cutters work on my fmj's. I then just take pliers to round the cut end up a little better from we're the bolt cutters mush it down

I won't tell you what I don't know

I've used a 12" miter saw with a 80 tooth blade for many years. I use a new blade and tape the shaft where I'm cutting it. Never had a issue. Cuts and arrows have always been perfect
