A lot of the stuff that comes from China is non-existent, as well as parts that are from China. I think a boy-cot is in order.

I built one using a mini-cut off saw from Harbor Freight. Of course I know everything for HB is built in China ! But I have something that currently works.

I built my own jig and use a dremel. Works like a champ. Not hard to make with lots of plans on the net or youtube.

I have used the small chop saw from harbor freight for years no problem, it will accurately cut a 300.00 golf shaft and arrows. I recently got an apple arrow saw at an estate auction and have cut some arrows with it, very nice, I may fit it to cut golf shafts as well.

How exactly does this boycott work? So we don't buy stuff that we can't buy due to unavailability? I'm down for the cause.

If you were closer I would let you borrow mine

Only use it about once every other year

Academy used to cut a dozen for free if you brought them in but I don't know if they still do that

You serious, Clark?

Just kidding, you are asking a good question, and one I had myself a few years back when I was gathering up my arrow making tools. There are some good leads and suggestions already posted about buying/building a diy saw. I made a diy saw, and it has worked out OK for me. Good luck with your search.
