Tomorrow is the first day of competition at the Capitol Clash. Our winch arm was broken and we didn’t have a hacksaw to fix it with. So I came up with this… how do you guys like it? =-)
Hahaha… That looks like a creation team 716 would definitely use.
Thats ghettofab. I LOVE it.
The cutting part is the smallest thing on the hacksaw!
Has it fallen apart yet? :rolleyes:

This is my first post on chiefdelphi from my Linux :] box
consider yourself added to my announcer notes for the capitol clash tomorrow…the world will know about the hacksaw
"…and just as a note if anyone needs to borrow a hack saw team 306 has a special one for use…
hehhe, nice. I love it when teams don’t have the right tool or part when they need it, and then come up with some great solution to stand in.
I remember a team with a flipper bot at the Denver Regional and they were placing the bot on the field when a pneumatic piston fell off. This is with about 20 seconds to get their bot on the field, and they didn’t have any of their tools or equipment nearby. One quick-thinking student yanked the shoelaces from his shoe, and then the team quickly tied the things around the piston and the support that it fell off of. All with about 5 seconds to spare. The cool part, was that the makeshift repair ended working just fine.
I think it’s just great when people are using their brains and coming up with cool stuff like this
Necessity really is the mother of invention! MacGuver has nothing on you guys! I love it!
That’s way cooler than our make-shift keyway cutter! You should sell hacksaw kits!
5 Hack saw blades taped together, side-by-side with duct tape. Just run it up and down inside a hub.
I love it!
