    In further preparation for the chain saw launcher, I moved the battery pack for the mini chain saw into the handle. It looked immediately like a sword!<br><br>So I decided to give it a go... made a hilt, and a pommel, then wrapped everything with 10mm paracord. <br><br>I also made a scabbard, from a bit of thick leather and the original plastic blade cover.<br><br>This looks very cool!<br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/chains13.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/chains14.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/chains15.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    I have now souped up my chainsword...<br><br>Replaced the old homemade battery pack (six 3V CR123A cells) with 18 1,2V Sanyo 1500 cells. This runs the B+D motor at 21,6V instead of the original 18V! <br><br>Now this thing is as powerful as I hoped it would be. No more jamming in soft material and such. <br><br>Also, the 900 gramm (about 2 lb) "pommel" makes a great counter balance. <br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/saw110.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Here you can see it next to the old, lame battery pack.<br><br><img src="http://i14.servimg.com/u/f14/16/32/46/92/saw210.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Balance is better this way. The engine, sword and chain are heavy, and the weapon is front heavy whithout the batteries.

    B+D will no doubts LOVE the fact that I have overclocked their motor to get more power, and replaced their fail-safe two-button switch with a toggle switch <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Yep. Them big companies shit themselves and start reading from the cue cards their lawyers have written up for them when people like us call up with these sorts of things. Total glaze-over of the eyes. They become weird. Pale. Like they just found out that those Johnny Mathis albums they've doted over all these years haven't appreciated like their younger brothers Hendrix collection has. To this day, still a bone of contention that rears it's ugly head every Thanks Giving. Four or five Tom Collins and the gloves come off. The Leisure Suit clad Genie has once again been let loose. The rest of the evening is a write-off. There's no hope of salvage. <br>When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.........</span>
