    Wow! Great job. Puts my little jig to shame. I went for the minimalist approach, but with less of everything.
    I can see that you really enjoyed making that.

    I have the tools to make tools. The "tailstock" is a 10mm bolt with the head rounded and drilled to 10mm, leaving a pointy recess, ideal for my XBusters and X 10's. Nocks, points, bare shafts and pins fit centred. It cuts really square, the arrow sits on the tape covered alloy angle, and you just rotate the shaft one revolution as the 60mm Diamond coated (thin) blade cuts through the arrow tube wall. I have trimmed 2 sets of X 10's and 15 X busters over the weekend. Now for some fletching!

    I've used the ordinary Dremel cut off discs, and it only takes about 3 arrows to wear out a disc.
    Clearly I need to get a diamond disc.

    Invest 2.39 on ebay for a 60mm disc and mandrel. Thin cutting disc, no wear after 3 doz arrows, both ends cut on the X10's. It took 3 weeks to arrive from China, so I made the removable safety guard as I waited. I have had discs and even a wheel on a Best Arrow Saw blow up in my face. Wear goggles and a mask.
