    Pretty much have to have one. I bought cheep on ebay. Chinese built plastic orange thing (can't remember the brand). I think I paid around $35 shipped. It works fine if I take my time cutting. Some day I'll spring for a "big boy" saw

    The Harbor Freight Mini Cut Off Saw is the one that may use to cut arrows. It can often be found for $20 to $25 on sale.

    There is a guy on Ebay who sells the blades that you need. He had very good service when I bought some a few years ago.

    It's not easy to get a square cut with this little saw. It's a good idea to also get a G5 ASD or arrow squaring device.

    another alternate is a dremmel type saw. A lot of guys have made jigs for these.

    IMO a dedicated arrow saw is the best way to go. Bowhunters Superstore has the best price on these. They have one for $70.

    Hope this helps,
    Allen

    I've been using my 5000rpm woodworking mitre saw with an abraisive blade. Although it works, if I did'nt already have that, I'd go for the real deal.
