Instructables
It has returned! Yes, after 3 years, I have finally decided to post instructions of my miter saw. This saw is just like the old one, except a few minor color changes to give it a more consistent color scheme. For those of you who don't know about this saw, it's a model I built 3 years ago and posted as a slideshow, but I never made instructions.. until now! I don't know why I never posted them earlier. Maybe I was lazy, or too busy saving the world by slaying creepers and endermen. Either way, here are the instructions, and I'm glad I finally have them posted. :-)

I didn't make a new video, so here is the old one in case anyone wants to see the saw in action:


So, without further to do, let's cut to the next step! (terrible pun, I know) :-P . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I have some problems with the saw he doesn't run. the gears in the tail will run if the chain is gone. If I run the gears with the chain the gears in the tail will not turning

Shadowman39 (author)  pwingelaar9 months ago

Before adding the chain, see if everything rotates freely. After the chain is added make sure nothing is blocking it.

Thanks for your fast answer tomorrow I checking everything

the saw is really nice to build

Nice.. I was able to build it with your clear instructions.. Now I'm going to build your coin sorter....
Shadowman39 (author)  KnexKreator9 months ago
Cool, thanks for building!
Just built it is amazing great job now I going to put a trekker motor on it when I do I will post a video!
Shadowman39 (author)  pongopeter8261 year ago
Nice! Looking forward to see a faster version of the saw.
You should put a trekker motor on this.
Shadowman39 (author)  pongopeter8261 year ago
Yeah, that would be cool.
Do you need all those bendy rods or are they just for looks?
Shadowman39 (author)  pongopeter8261 year ago
Yeah, those are just for looks.

In how many instructions do you use that pic for the gathering the pieces step?
Shadowman39 (author)  Sorunome1 year ago
3
i thought over 9000 :(
Shadowman39 (author)  Sorunome1 year ago
Those are unpublished Ibles. :-)
lol
btw, what are private ibles good for, they have exactly the same features as unpublished ibles >.<
Shadowman39 (author)  Sorunome1 year ago
Private Ibles have a published date and unpublished ones don't. That's the only thing I can think of.

Awesome saw. Ever consider adding either of the following complications:a compound miter, or SLIDING COMPOUND miter saw? Or, the ultimate workshop build: a radial arm saw! Keep up the exciting work!
Shadowman39 (author)  jnajman1 year ago
Thanks! I've never thought about making those, since I just now learned what they are. :-P The only thing I was thinking of was a saw that could tilt.

Do you think it would be possible to build it with 6 red gears instead of 8? Thanks much.
Shadowman39 (author)  danbaha1 year ago
You could replace the two red gears that are sticking out the side with medium yellow gears.
Ok thank you. I am making I for my dad to symbolize all the projects we have done together for fathers day. Lol its kinda dorky but my dad is an engineer so he will appreciate the design lol.
Shadowman39 (author)  danbaha1 year ago
Haha, cool!

Couple more questions! Could i use string instead of fishing line and do you need the snap cap parts?
Shadowman39 (author)  cinnes11 year ago
You can use string, and you can use blue/tan clips instead of snap caps in some places where there is extra space.
thanks! just making it the now! may take me 2 days or so!!!!
Shadowman39 (author)  cinnes11 year ago
Haha, that's how long it took me to build it. :-P
cinnes11 year ago
I do not have 8 red gears (only 4) could i use the yellow ones?
Shadowman39 (author)  cinnes11 year ago
Yes, just don't let the teeth sticking out get in the way.
thanks
