Knex HD Circular Saw

This Circular Saw that you see here is one of the many knex things i've been working on, but have not shown you guys because of not really wanting to post anything in the past... however long it was. A little more about this saw is: it is the first Circular Saw on this site if i'm not wrong. If this saw was real; it would have a Gasoline engine for power and instead of a motor being in the old motor compartment, it would have a massive spindle brake so that it stopped spinning faster. Some things that is saw lacks is the fuel tank, the blade guard, and an on/off switch. I would have loved to add those things to it, but I ran out of some parts that were vital to their creation. A quick fact about the blade; The blade's diameter is 8 7/8" or roughly 225mm. The blade's thickness is about 7/10" or 17.8mm thereabouts.

Overall, I think that it turned out alright but could have been much better. Still something to look at every now and then I suppose. It was fun to make, and was something to do.

Cool saw! I like how you built the blade. But, I believe this is the first circular saw on this site.
...What does it do?
It's not supposed to do anything. It is unpowered, and is obviously a model.
