Lance Abernethy created World’s smallest circular saw

By | August 5, 2015


Lance Abernethy, a native man of New Zealand has created a tiny saw, which actually works. This circular saw is smallest working power tool. Lance is the same person who created the world’s smallest working power drill some time ago back in March. Abernethy has designed each and every part of the tool by himself and 3D printed on his Ultimaker 2 machine by using PLA plastic. The layer height of the PLA plastic used is 21 to 40 microns and 0.5 mm shell thickness. He printed this tiny circular saw in less than 1 hour.

This circular saw is powered by a hearing aid battery similar to the previous tiny miniature drill and comes with a button on handle to turn the device On or Off, but in reality the device won’t be able to cut anything.

Abernethy told 3Dprint, “The saw was just a natural progression from the drill, I would like to be able to make a whole set of power tools just like my Makita set I have. I’m not sure how many I will get around to making though.” According to 3Dprint Abernethy further added that he wants to make this device able to cut the tiny pieces of the wood. He also wants to make some other power tools and in future he wants to make these designs available for purchase for public, if anyone wants to make his own tools.
