arrow saw

My wife was inquiring about Christmas wishes and arrow saw came to mind. Is the 5000 rpm saw adequate for carbon arrows or will I need something faster (I've seen them up to 8000 rpm)?

I'd go with the 8000 RPM Period.

You'll find that the extra RPM's cuts cleaner and faster on all shafts.

a 5000 rpm saw will splinter at the edge of the cut on black carbons and some camo carbons, depending on make of arrow. that has been my findings.

Get the most speed you can. Also, make sure you get the carborundum disk (abrasive... no teeth) blades. The .025" thick version will give you a real clean cut in carbon arrows. Be careful if you never used one of these. The slightest bit of pressure on the side of the blade/disk when powered up will break it sending pieces flying.
