cutting carbon arrows like ACE

Question:

hello everybody! Does anyone have an idea how we can cut ACE-arrows without the Easton machine? If we want to tune some arrows in the field, we need a simple and cheap method for cutting this arrows. Our archery-store with the "right equipment" is nearly 50km away! Many thanks, JDS

Response:

You can make a cutoff tool using a Dremel tool and their cut off wheels. Make sure that you have the tool clamped to something so that it will not move.  Then clamp something else to the bench or table for your shaft length.  What ever you do, DO NOT USE A PIPE CUTTER.  That will cause cracks in the carbon fibers, making the arrow unsafe to shoot.

ROTFL Sorry, that is the funniest thing I heard the last year! In Germany, we have, if ever, maximal 10 really good pro shops. Additionally, a handful of "basement bandits". More than 80% of all archers in our country have to drive 200 KM and more to come to a pro shop. But, do what Don said in:

it is the right way. — Sven

I’d suggest an abrasive cutting disc in a Dremel or Minidrill, but I’ve never actually tried this… You’d have to be very careful to get the lengths equal. Jonny
