Diy ice saw

Homemade ice saw.

You can immediately boil a normal Finnish ice saw (2200-2500r here or here) and not steamed. But if “hands itch” you can make it from scrap materials.

Plastic pipe for sewerage with a diameter of 40mm and a length of 1m. (79r everywhere)

Wooden handles are removed from the saw and a loop is removed from one side (rivets can be drilled out, but it is better to cut them with an angle grinder).

Epic Cycling on Ice

The hole closest to the back side is reamed to a diameter of 6mm (for a bolt).

Then we make a cut in the future handle. Very good sawing PVC fresh hacksaw blade, which is held simply in the hand.

First, one cut is made, but this is not enough, because the pipe will be “wrapped in”. To get a slot with a width of 5 mm, you need to make another cut, thereby choosing 1-1.5 cm.

(Note the difference between the selected strip and the resulting slit.)

Then we attach the handle and drill through the pipe (getting into the drilled hole left after the loop). In this case, you need to press the future handle as tightly as possible to the back of the saw:

Then we insert the bolt and tighten the nut (it is better to use a lamb). If everything is done correctly, then the mount should turn out to be quite rigid.

When assembled, the saw teeth go into the slot on the handle:

(Due to the “arcuate” shape of the saw blade, the pipe must bend slightly in order to properly cover the teeth throughout)

On both sides of the saw (in the holes from the loop and on the other side in the loop itself) 2 ropes are tied so that the pipe does not fly off the teeth.

Then you need to spread the saw teeth (the wider the better). This is done with a file (be careful not to cut yourself)!

(We put a triangular file between the teeth and “spread” the teeth in pairs in different directions. Then we turn the saw over with the other end and do the same thing. So the effect on each tooth will be from both sides.)

The results of field tests showed that, in comparison with the Finnish ice cube, our “samopal” saws of course badly (subjectively, 1.5-2 times slower). However, the efficiency for normal sawing is quite enough and the device bites into ice quite well. In general, it turned out quite suitable for use (for my own money).

Addendum: apparently due to the fact that we spread the saw crookedly (the teeth were bent more in one direction), it began to cut not along the mowing line, but in an arc (which is rather inconvenient). Next year (when there is ice) we will try to spread the teeth more symmetrically. let’s hope this will fix the situation.

How to choose?

When choosing a saw for cutting ice, you should familiarize yourself with the various options for household saws, since each of them is designed for a certain volume of work, has its own advantages and disadvantages. There are several types of saws that can be used to cut the ice sheet.

  • Handmade Finnish. The advantages of the instance include lightness. Ice masses up to one meter thick can be cut. Among the minuses, it is worth noting the low speed of work when compared with a gasoline tool. But if we compare the speed of work on metal or wood, then such a saw will cope with ice much faster. As well as hand-held Finnish saws, which are recommended for cutting out polynya or myna, can be divided according to the following criteria:
  • a tool with a wooden handle is an environmentally friendly accessory, it fits well in the hand, it is easy for them to work;
  • saw with a metal handle. compared to the above option, this is a more durable version.
  • Chainsaw. This is a fairly convenient option to work with. Sawing a hole in the ice is simple and quick for them, but this variety has the following disadvantages:
  • it is possible to work only with a thickness of no more than 37 cm;
  • during the cutting process, a lot of ice splashes get on the saw, which is fraught with icing of the tool and malfunction;
  • this weapon is quite massive.

Model rating

For ice masses of short length, a standard household chainsaw is also suitable, and for larger volumes of work, you should choose a professional tool. It is worth considering the most popular models.

  • STIHL MS 661. This unit has a capacity of 7.3 liters. with., and this is quite enough for cutting ice. Basic tire. 71 cm.

Features of ice saws and their selection

The ice saw can be used in a wide variety of situations. For example, many fishermen use this tool to cut holes or large-area holes to use set nets. Often the ice saw is used by EMERCOM employees and scuba divers.

This tool finds another application during extreme travel, for example, such a saw will free the car from the ice cap.

Chainsaw features

The operation of this equipment has its own characteristics. For example, the smooth operation of a chainsaw is ensured by an air injection system. This also increases the service life of the tool, as the saw wears out much more slowly. The shape of the device itself is quite convenient, so the cutting process is quite easy and quick. For heavy loads, the installation provides for a three-section crankshaft. Ice can be cut with any chainsaw, but in each case the rule must be observed. do not use oil.

The fact is that in a different situation it reduces friction and prevents overheating, but when working with ice it is not necessary.

Operating tips

Before you start cutting ice, use the following tips for using your chainsaw:

  • you do not need to use oil because it reduces friction and can also pollute the pond if fish are grown in it;
  • it is recommended to carry out the work process with the tip of the tire, avoiding contact with water;
  • after sawing, the tool should be thoroughly wiped and dried, and then lubricated with the chain, sprocket and tire;
  • do not forget about personal safety measures. wear a waterproof uniform, stock up on a plywood shield, since when using a chainsaw a lot of water and ice crumbs fly.
