This instructable is meant to share just how quick and sloppy simple it can be to build a racer from a circular saw and stuff you likely have kicking around your garage. To construct such a racer you need only some old skates, scraps of wood, screws, bolts, a drill, and of course a circular saw.
The 2007 Seattle Power Tool Race & Derby is June 23rd.

Step 1: Collect Materials
This can really be built from 100% scrap. In my case though I went out and bought a pair of skates and some tub/shower door rollers. In total I spent $12. If you had to buy the wood, saw, and everything you might be able to spend $50 bucks on this project.
Bill Of Materials:
- In Line Skates (8 bucks)
- Scraps of Plywood
- Scraps of 2x2 or 2x4
- Tub/Shower Roller (3 bucks)
- Stiff wire or a Zip Tie
- Circular Saw
- Circular Saw (the same one!)
