Introduction: Knex Miter Saw V 2
Here is the new version of my miter saw. The meganism is updated which makes sure the blade guard goes up and down faster wile moving the saw part. After I saw 39 shadowman's miter saw i was like: I can build such a thing to and tada here it is. I really hope you guys like it and have fun with it after building.
