I have the 5000rpm Apple saw. It works awesome, and I could not see any reason to spend the extra $$$ to get the 8000rpm motor!

If $$ is tight you can get by with the 4" mini table saw at harbor freight tools.comes with a diamond and a toothed blade. Works well enough for wood/alum/carbon.its what I use but I only cut a dozen or two arrows a year.
If you're going to cut lotsa arrows, like to sell or for friends and family, I'd
Probably spring for an actual arrow saw.

The high speed saw with dust collector from Weston has worked for me for ten years now I think, it cuts them straight. I had one of those chop saws from Harbor Freight before it, even had it mounted on a decent jig, it was ok, but not near as good as a genuine arrow saw! I would of saved a lot of money buying the real thing first! They were quite a bit cheaper when I bought mine! But still a lot cheaper than the Apple and I've seen them hold up to archery shop level use!

Various bows, but if you see me shooting, it's probably a Toelke in my hand!

Harbor Freight has a small chop saw, this would be good for the average guy cutting arrows 2 to 4 dozen per year.

I bought the HF saw but only use it on woodies (toothed blade). I'm told with a carbide disc it works great on aluminum or carbon as well. For 50 bucks and change, you can't beat it.

I paid less than $35 for the mini chop saw from HF, and got blades for it at Big Jim's. mounted it on a base with marked lengths, works great, and I do 4-5 dozen a year.

X2 on the Weston, I bought the 8000rpm with vacuum attachment years ago for half the $$$ of an Apple and it always cuts straight, set up for my draw length one time and no Jerry rigging something else to do an arrow saw's job.

Lefties are the only ones who hold the bow in the right hand, and my fletching is about as left-wing as I get.
