Power Hacksaw Made From Washing Machine Parts
The main frame for the saw was fashioned out of 6-in. channel iron. The saw blade is held by a couple pieces of 2-in. flat iron, one of which pivots for mounting and dismounting the blade.
There is a connecting rod from the washing machine agitator gear to the saw. It changes rotary motion to reciprocating motion.
Just in back of the driving mechanism is an extension on the main arm that has notches for adjusting a hanging weight. The placement of the weight determines how much down pressure to apply to the metal being sawed.
