Yes, but they have a mold for 1-pointers...
The problem with 0-pointers made on a band saw is they need to be cut from the same size piece to begin with, otherwise you'll end up with differently shaped 0-pointers because the 1, 2, and 3 pointers all meet at different angles.
This is fine if you're going to cut down 3-pointers to make one pointers, but becomes prohibitive if you're trying to buy massive amounts of a single piece to cut them down...
Then again, I'm picky... the angle may not be that different.

Just look at Volcano and the grey 1-pointers - and those aren't *strictly*
