  • another home made saw link

    Modern Mechanix June 1935 had this interesting concept for a saw.
    It was powered by magnetism, the saw vibrated through the drive of a magnetic buzzer, It even gave the plans to wind your own coils.The page claims the saw can cut through 1/2 wood. Not sure what type of wood that would be.

    It's a Spiralux! I've got one of those, and it struggles with 1/4" plywood. Great for kiddies and people who are nervous that they might cut themselves on the unguarded blade, though.

      Looks like 'variable speed' back then would have meant a trip over seas to the world of 50 cycles. I believe that has since been corrected to reflect the normal 60 cycle we use?

          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

          I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

          I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

          I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

          First off how thick is the board you cut?
          When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
          that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
          for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...
