Buzz Saw Rig Made Using An Old Car
I put a hitch on front to tow it with a tractor or pickup. The transmission drives the rear end. There's a wheel on one end, elevated off the ground, that friction-drives a shaft that runs to the buzz saw blade. The emergency brake is used to keep the hub at the other end of the rear end from turning. The great thing about it was that there were no belts to worry about. I could adjust the friction of the tire by adjusting air pressure in the tire. To control speed, I just adjusted the idle on the carb. (Ted Slaght, 2247 Kum Hattin Rd., Putney, Vt. 05346)
