Introduction: Knex Table Saw and Cut Off Saw.

Picture of 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.

Rate and comment.

Step 1: Front Legs.

I like it, but I think the phrase 'little toy' is a bit of a misnomer!

spyroman45 (author)knexguy2009-09-16

your right if you think this is little then your blind

knexguy (author)spyroman452009-09-17

Wow, that was a long time ago...

GeekBeam (author)knexguy2010-06-08

he commented on it a year after you did, that qualifies it(and me for that matter) as mildly entertaining.

knexguy (author)GeekBeam2010-06-09


GeekBeam (author)knexguy2010-06-09

now it's funny...sorry it was funny in the first place

Killer~SafeCracker (author)2009-08-16

It should be you are done. Not you are don't.

smattman22 (author)2009-08-13

ok thannks :D

smattman22 (author)2009-08-13

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.

smattman22 (author)2009-08-12

i cant figure it out! XD JK

smattman22 (author)2009-08-12

ive seen this forever but im building it later! not now because its 2 am and the rattle of pieces would wake everyone.

mettaurlover (author)2009-02-18

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...

Skreetsha (author)2008-11-03


bounty1012 (author)2008-09-28

can you replace the gears?

knexkrazy (author)bounty10122008-09-28

I guess. Try 1 panel from I_ am_Canadian's wheel on his nano cannon. This is the closest thing I can think of.

bannana inventor (author)2008-09-04

Wow!!! I would have never thought of this and my dad has a woodshop!!! Diffinatley a 5.0 for originality!!! :D

Vynash (author)2008-09-03

The Jamalam (author)2008-09-01

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!

The Jamalam (author)The Jamalam2008-09-01


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

knexkrazy (author)The Jamalam2008-09-01

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.

The Jamalam (author)knexkrazy2008-09-01

a bbq grill? lol cant wait! :D

dsman195276 (author)The Jamalam2008-09-01

i wonder what knex-a-fied stakes taste like :-)

The Jamalam (author)dsman1952762008-09-02

lol k'burger

knexkrazy (author)dsman1952762008-09-01

The slideshow is posted on the BBQ grill and an Instructable for a knex picture frame take a look.

flames10391 (author)2008-08-31

i know its cool and all but it would be cooler if you called it what it not a "cut off saw" its more like a Miter Saw

knexkrazy (author)flames103912008-09-01

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.

flames10391 (author)knexkrazy2008-09-01

is that the actual name for that type of saw? haha

Oblivitus (author)2008-09-01

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

knexkrazy (author)Master_Zane2008-09-01

Thank you!

lord voldamort (author)2008-09-01

probably for spitballs

knexguy (author)lord voldamort2008-09-01

Tear them? Chew them?

Oompa-Loompa (author)2008-08-31

I think it's really cool, but why would you need to cut tissue paper?
