Introduction: 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.

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

    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!
