Dowel rod cutter drc from Russia (ebay)
« on: February 13, 2018, 09:34:11 am »
I was searching ebay the other day came across a potential alternative to the Veritas dowel cutter. This product comes from Russia and cuts dowels into 11/32 or 5/16 for both cutters it was 62 plus 6 for shipping or 33 plus 6 for shipping on one cutter. I puchas the 11/32 product and I'm waiting for it to come in the mail. I was curious if anyone has used this product?

s://www.ebay.com/itm/112803356627?ViewItem=&item=112803356627 is the link for the product mentioned you will need to add the http in front of the link the maker also encourages  "Please learn carefuly User's Manual and watch detailed video Dowel Maker Rod Cutter DRC on YouTube!" I could only find two videos but they seem to work well. when the Veritas arrow making dowel cutter could cost somewhere close to 200.00 for the 3 standard thickness arrows this may be a much less expensive option. I'll update more once I receive mine and make some test arrows.

i will see if i can get some pics of how my veritas was set up- it may help a bit- works a a wee bit easier than his in the video.
looks like a good tool- keep the blade razor sharp- max rpm you can get to spin it- i bought a 1/2" drill that had good speed, then a slow feed rate- i would take about 1 minute per shaft- was the ideal speed.
 and as the shaft exits, you can sand it at the same time- one pass all is done!

Please do, TSA.  I've fought and fought my Veritas.  I can get usable shafts out of it but most often I have a spiral cut into it or other issues.

it is very similar but it is actually in imperial rather than metric, but it is probably from the same maker.

IT'S HERE. I don't have a table saw right now because my motor went out on mine. But I took some shoots that I had dried out and ran the fat ends through after they were straightened. In just messing around I turned out 2 nice arrows. That spine great with my 58 lb Osage self bow at my 24 inch draw.  (SH) :NN

Pictures or it didnít happen!

Haha seriously though, I like hand planing but it takes me ages to complete a dozen. If this setup does ok I might have to try it! Just for when itís august 25th and I realize Iíve broke all my arrows and season is less than a week away.

The attachments and other options button under the reply box. Usually I have to reduce my image size first. 720xwhatever
