Shaft Question


MWellner

Recommended Posts

If you buy shafts and need to cut them, but the question is if you have DeWalt 705 12" compound, can you mark the shaft as long as you know the appropriate arrow length and use a cutoff blade as the shaft is carbon fiber?

Not sure how well the blade on your chop saw would do. The blade is not considered high speed. I would be afraid of separating the carbon fibers cutting with a blade like that. A high speed cut-off tool has a different blade, and spins much faster than your typical chop saw...

I'd take the shafts to a local archery shop...safer and is actually pretty quick as well.

no, the blade speed is way too slow. you would need way more than a 60 tooth blade to cleanly cut carbon shafts. i would try a good edged fine file instead if you're doing it yourself

There is nothing wrong with building ones own arrows and some really enjoy this. I have always had all of my arrows cut to fit and fletched by a shop as I dont own the right equipment. At todays prices for good shafts, one should make sure you have the correct equipment before they attemp to make their own arrows as the shafts are not cheap. If your not sure about what you are using to cut the shafts, maybe a shop could cut them to length for you and then you could finish builing your arrows.

Good luck and have fun.

please take the shafts to a pro shop and have them cut them if you don't have the proper equip. ! the results will be much more consistant.then you can take them home and finish the arrows.

Just take em to an archery shop, it's cheap and all your arrows are cut clean and consistently. Takes about 5 minutes max.

      We couldn’t put a pattern together this week. The few keepers and the one 25” slot fish we got were caught moving slowly up and down reef edges in 15-24 feet. Nothing off the edge and nothing on the tops. Very tough fishing, found bugs and baitfish top to bottom in the water column almost everywhere we went. Should’ve just switched to bass.

      Found a spot this morning and picked up 5. Lost over a dozen as well. 3 of us fishing and their inexperience hurt.  Hope the wife doesn't see this.😁   Found them on a hump about 17 ft. in big bay south end.  If I moved off it by 20 ft nothing. I think the best plan is to troll slowly and if you get 1 stop and jig it. Leeches or crawlers both worked.

      Skeeters are big and nasty at vermilion.  Any bigger I might start a chocolate covered deep fried mosquito for state fair food.

      Maybe his blood is not as tasty as mine? Just got back from a run, the deer flies were thick, I do have hair of a Greek god so they get lost in there 😅

      The mighty Mississippi has finally dropped enough that fishing isn't so much work again😂.  Been getting a good mix of river species this past week...lots and lots of bass though. Have even gotten a few real close to 20in.... Still looking for that first legit beast yet this summer.    Hey Leechy...... If you line up that big boulder and the hospital you pretty much got my area😁😂. 5-6 ft of water, fishies using the big rocks as a break from the current.  Crayfish and minnow colors with Ned rigs
