Made from MDF and Plywood. Dremel tool in Dremel drill stand part. Machined hex bolt tailstock, adjustable for length, ebay purchased Diamond cut off disc. The jig cuts a really square end to the shaft. You rotate the shaft one rev as the disc cuts through the arrow wall. Aluminium/carbon composite Easton X 10’s and Carbon Express X Busters. If I was to do it again, I would use plywood and a sewing machine motor, but this works fine as I only cut my shafts and don’t lend tools.

Neat design. Maybe a rotozip would work better than a sewing machine motor?

I like the idea of the foot control for a sewing machine, however…

You saved a bunch of $$$$. Our club has a cutoff unit; I believe a new one costs over $150.

Have your say...
