    I know exactly what you mean – I really want this spoke rolling machine for instance:

    Is it through yet?

    In fairness, I think the video in the OP could have done with being sped up x quite a few.

    But then you don’t get the relaxing sound effects!

    Is it through yet?

    Yeah, that’s what she said too.

    I put this video on my FB page, and some people find it very relaxing – so, here for your viewing pleasure, is a Kennedy power saw cutting through a 1″ aluminium bar:

    Watch for the finale, it’s worth it 😀

    Good work! I didn’t even get slightly aroused until the second video.

    More lube next time.

    More lube next time.

    Aye, definitely – can see the points on the cut where I added more cutting fluid. Still produced a lovely finish though.

    A pot of paste and a small brush, you can apply it to the top of the blade and it will flow into the cut.

    I am disappointed in you Ben.
    A man of your caliber should have known to use lube with a stroke that fast.
    You will end up with a blunt or damaged tool, and it won’t last very long.

    I normally do it by hand, that’s much more gentle – and you can tell when it’s getting warm.

    Is there a Benni Benassi version using powertools ?

    Are there any teeth on that blade ?
    was very frustrating to watch juinor hacksaw would have cut it faster me thinks 😕

    Speed isn’t everything, it’s smoothness with a lovely finish.

    juinor hacksaw would have cut it faster me thinks

    A tortoise with a blunt spoon would have been no slower than that Kennedy saw.

    I reckon you could get through that bar quicker with a plastic knife from an airline economy meal set!

    I might experiment with the oil pot thing, that controls the rate of descent – I read that heavyweight oil was good so put in some 80W transmission oil.

    Not all that fussed about speed, though – it cuts neatly and fits on my bench which is all that matters to me 😉

    That thread-rolling one is a H&S report waiting to happen.

    Yeah you could have someones eyelet out.

    Or get spoked in the eye.

    My spoke rolling machine is a little safer, though of a similar vintage:

    Oh good, I have been meaning to talk to you about very small spokes. front drum to 451 rim…

    I have a larger floor standing mechanical hacksaw, from memory it can cut an eight or ten inch I beam. The reciprocating speed is much slower than the OPs. I bought it second hand at a farm sale, it’s really handy when you need it.

    Yes, you can pick up the large ones pretty cheaply, but they’re too big for my workshop – I’d love to have the space for big machine tools 😉

    Yup, can do that – my gadget will do down to 70mm spokes.
