Congragulations, you finished the saw. Now turn the motor on and press it down and see how the blade guard goes up.
Have fun with it. You may put it on the internet but you must give credits to me.

Do you have to have the Grey Bendy Rods?

CassisDude98 (author)Knexman152012-01-11

No but they are connected to the blade guard to make sure the two sides goo up but if you plaace another rubber band at the other side of the saw then they won't be neccessary

Thanks for my 50th comment!!!

Knexman15 (author)CassisDude982012-01-11

Okay, I'm building right now and I'll tell you how it turns out, and your welcome.

Knexman15 (author)Knexman152012-01-11

Wow, about ten minutes after I posted the comment above I found 4 Bendi gray rods.

Knexman15 (author)Knexman152012-01-12

I finished it, and you get 5 stars. This thing is awesome!

CassisDude98 (author)Knexman152012-01-12

Thanks if you send a picture i will add it to the last step

Snosageman99 (author)2011-10-08

Can u use yellow gears instead of red gears cause i dont have that many red gears?

Thanks for building it, If you send me the picture I will add it to the last step
Also Thanks for the 5 stars!!!!


Yes, But then you need to find a solution for the space because of the growns of the yellow gears, So i really recomment the red gears at the part where the chain is on But for the other parts it really doesn't matter.

ok thanks...i built this and it works grea...5 stars

Very nice job! It's great to finally see a build process for this project :-)

Putting the link for the YouTube video is great; you can also, if you want, embed the video directly into your I'ble. Use the little "filmstrip" icon to get a popup box, where you paste the embed XML from YouTube. On the YouTube side, make sure you select Use old embed codes, because I'bles software doesn't know how to parse the new iframe syntax.
