That's awesome.

I've always looked at kitchen gadgets and tried to analyze exactly how they're manufactured. That stuff takes a beating--some of it breaks, and some of it survives. It's good to...

The blade and bearings are certainly worn out and need replaced/upgrading. Another thing that will make saws run crooked like that (especially as it gets further into the cut) is feed rate. If it's...

Plastics are a different beast. It's all about controlling the heat applied to a very tiny area through friction. If the tools are too sharp they dig in, too dull and they smear.
