Watch: Convert an Angle Grinder Into a Chainsaw

Tired of stubborn gasoline chainsaws? Have a lot of time on your hands, plus access to a nice machine shop? Well then you, too, can turn an angle grinder into a safe and functional electric chainsaw.

What’s that you ask? Why not just get an electric chainsaw, which actually oils the chain automagically and is already built? Pshaw! Have you no imagination or sense of adventure?

But seriously, this is a fairly simple build and the result is a pretty cool attachment that does the job.
