Instructables

Knex table saw and cut off saw.

This is just a fun little toy I made. It is a cut of saw and a table saw in the same mechanism. The the cut off saw flips back ,and the table saw lowers out of sight so you can have a "flat" work table. They both can cut through kleenex. I haven't geared them yet but if you want to you can. It uses 2 motors ,but if you have one you can switch them out like I do.

I like it, but I think the phrase 'little toy' is a bit of a misnomer!
your right if you think this is little then your blind
Wow, that was a long time ago...
he commented on it a year after you did, that qualifies it(and me for that matter) as mildly entertaining.
>:(
now it's funny...sorry it was funny in the first place
It should be you are done. Not you are don't.

smattman224 years ago
build 1 and 2? or just make one but you're showing us different angles?
To me it looks like he is showing you two build just one, but different angles.
smattman224 years ago
i cant figure it out! XD JK

ive seen this forever but im building it later! not now because its 2 am and the rattle of pieces would wake everyone.
hmm... gives me an excuse to make an oversized gear system to power both, with a set of cutoff gears to make it so that only one spins at a time...

I guess. Try 1 panel from I_ am_Canadian's wheel on his nano cannon. This is the closest thing I can think of.
Wow!!! I would have never thought of this and my dad has a woodshop!!! Diffinatley a 5.0 for originality!!! :D

can i suggest some bracing techniques? use blue rods accross the front legs diaggonally,an the table do the same, in fact do it everywhare!
everywhere
Bracing for what???? A 2X4 what dose it need to support?
i mean cross bracing like if you have a square made of white rods and red connectors, a blue rod will go accross it diaggonally - a cross brace

I already took it apart, but it was perfectly sturdy the was it was. You can post a mod if you want, but a bunch of the parts are in my BBQ grill - which will be posted in a day or two.
a bbq grill? lol cant wait! :D

i know its cool and all but it would be cooler if you called it what it is...lol not a "cut off saw" its more like a Miter Saw
knexkrazy (author)  flames103915 years ago
No, this is a cut off saw. A miter saw will adjust to different angels and this saw will not , and it would be really hard to make it that way.
is that the actual name for that type of saw? haha

You should have sharpened the Wheels before you took it apart. :)

knexkrazy (author)  Master_Zane5 years ago
Thank you!
probably for spitballs
Tear them? Chew them?
I think it's really cool, but why would you need to cut tissue paper?
LOL
