  • Mini Chop Saw for Dowels,Split & Roll Pins

    This is a import chainsaw sharpener that I repurposed for cutting hard pins,was tired of free handing Dremel or Grinder with Zipblade.I installed Zip Blade in place of sharpening stones in pic background,I used a old Drill Chuck that slides in Compression Holder.The pics show different position of Chuck depending on dia being cut,l also made a 1/8” depth gauge for cutting repetitive sizes of Solid Pins.

      HI Tundra Twin Track,

      Another great tool project out of your shop. That is a great way to hold varied sizes in one setup using the drill chuck, very inventive. How's the DoAll coming along? It has to be making some progress in the COVID days too I presume?

        Great idea. I just made an attachment for my chainsaw grinder for sharpening hedge cutter blades. I like the mini cut off tool idea, I will be copying that!!

            Sounds very kinky to me.

              Thanks Chris, the real old Doall body and parts are being painted now so reassemble should start in a week or so.Another friend brought his 1942 ML over to be be repowered ,very similar to my ML.It runs super smooth and waiting for blade guides to come before it can start chewing on steel,those Doall’s are very well named.

              I am pretty impressed how it cuts having a small motor only running 3500 rpm.
              Cutting speeds for the following are

              Hard Dowel Pins
              3/16” 5 seconds
              5/16” 12 sec
              3/8” 16 sec

              Spring Split Pin
              1/2” 14 seconds

              I’m using the Pferd disc in pic,best ones I’ve ever used.Spindle Bore on Chuck is 33/64” Click image for larger version

                Fantastic idea and an even better execution of that idea!

                  A very nice adaptation. I tip my cap in respect to your ingenuity.

                  As for Doozer... I never thought of the PF name that way before.... But he ain't wrong ya know.... I don't think I'll be able to go into a Princess Auto store again without a slight grin....

                      Who came up with the name, Princess Auto? Or Busy Bee Tools?
                      If Ron Popeil sold sex toys on TV instead of Kitchen gadgets, Power Fist! would be the name of one of his products.

                        Nice conversion indeed. I was considering something similar a while back to do the same job. Still have not set up anything, but I'm not sure I'd want to pop for the sharpener thingamajig.

                        What sort of RPM does it have? Does it cut without too much in the way of heat affected zone? I've seen similar that end up with a blue temper at the cut.

                          Nice useful conversion.

                          The powerfist name for PA tools is appropriate, because when you plug them in, you don't know if you'll get power, or fisted.

                            Seriously, it looks like a handy cut off saw.
                            Does Harbor Freight sell a version ??

                              I like your creation, really nice. The chuck clamp is awesome--allows smooth turning or clamping and the offset profile of the clamp is cool-all in one piece !
                              You said "old Chuck" , but the outer sleeve of the chuck looks hollow ? Also did you weld the handle and tube to the back of the chuck or is it a flanged tube ?
