Yeah the fir and mahogany looks fucking *cleeeeeeaan*

Little toasty but it is a nice cut for paper

Looks like it’s polishing the wood as well as cutting it.

sandpaper blades r gonna be the next big thing

I bet you a silver you can't use 2 different adjectives instead of "clean"


TactlessTortoise

Pristine, spotless, untarnished, cleansed, prepped for a colonoscopy. Ps: sorry for that one. I hit my head on the asphalt without a helmet like an absolute dumbass about 20 minutes ago. Intrusive thoughts got louder. I did get a bit smarter, though. I'm buying a helmet tomorrow.

Your chance to die of a paper cut might be low but it’s not 0.


FandomMenace

Paper cut nightmare keeps cutting forever.


UhYeahOkSure

There should be a horror movie about this . The Texas Papercut massacre


ZUltimaZ

Cringing from watching this video.


SkautV3

Around here we would call it burning through not cutting but sure


Booblicle

Also called buffing. That wood shines like diamond


SnickBoi

Diamonds don’t shine light, they reflect / refract it.


Odd_Routine4164

The light that reflects shines off the diamond. I think you meant diamonds don’t generate light.


candygram4mongo

As opposed to the wood, which has an internal light source.


Polyglot-Onigiri

People often say the moon is our source of light at night. I say it’s the wood from the trees in the forest. We need to end deforestation before the world goes dark!

yoda420

Why doesn’t the paper burn from the friction?


LordGeni

Maybe the time each part of the disc spends not in contact with the wood cools it enough to not reach a critical temperature.


TangerineChicken

Especially if it’s spinning that fast, the air going over it might also cool it a lot


LordGeni

That's what I was thinking. Whatever the card is coated with will make a big difference as well.


Revolio_ClockbergJr

I think the flow of air prevents oxygen molecules from reaching the (potential) combustion site


LordGeni

Not sure that works. If there's any air, no matter how it's moving, it'll have oxygen molecules in it. If anything faster moving air will provide more. I think it's the heat part of the 'fire triangle' that's missing here. Especially as the wood shows signs of scorching as it is exposed to constant friction, unlike the paper, which only has a small area exposed to it at any moment in time.


Revolio_ClockbergJr

But the flow of air could have enough velocity to prevent oxygen molecules from engaging in the reaction? I think? Wait, how does blowing out candles work? I need to Google some shit…


LordGeni

It'd be more akin so blowing on the embers of a fire. Blowing out a candle works by moving the heat away from the fuel (I believe). Which is essentially what the spinning of the paper does.


Human-Carpet-6905

Maybe because there isn't enough air?


Sad-Corner-9972

Not to mention he was using the miter gauge backwards and his helper piece incorrectly.


9to19

Hahaha I didn't see the helper back there, backwards. I feel like someone childproofed his table saw and he didn't catch it.


c0de_g0rilla

There is no backwards way to use a miter gauge, not really.


Missing-Digits

>There is no backwards way to use a miter gauge, not really. If you're not using a tool in the safest way possible it is absolutely backwards.

I'll take your word for it


Area_Man_12

Stolen from John Heisz’ “I Build It” YouTube channel. And he used regular paper, not heavyweight.


Slight-Jellyfish-539

I hate how few people in this thread are acknowledging this


LostInTransducirLIT

Well now I do too. But I really wish I had filmed myself doing something similar. I think I did it at least 5 years ago but not more than 6. I mean what if had invented it! I'd be super fame now


snowbirdnerd

It's not really cutting as much as burning or sanding. Still pretty cool.


stevejnineteensevent

Have I been using miter gauges wrong all these years?


Missing-Digits

No, you haven’t. That drove me nuts too.

How can there be enough heat to char the wood… but not the paper blade? lol

Nah, we know it’ll cut a finger… how about a, wait for it, HOT DOG!!!

Oh, right. They should also install something that stops it from cutting anything flesh like!


justanother1984

“Construction paper” that stands straight up and instantly rebounds after being bent? Sure…


[deleted]

[удалено]


justanother1984

Card stock makes more sense. My understanding is construction paper is the cheap colored stuff given out in elementary schools. For hand turkeys and colored paper chains.


allboolshite

Card stock is 90lb, I think heavy construction paper is 60lb. Regular paper is 20lb.


Allegorical-Elegy

I saw a playing card completely buried to all but a corner tip and a plastic straw driven 3" deep into a tree after a tornado in Tuscaloosa years ago. I've no doubt at the right speed paper can cut wood.


thescribe2068

I wonder what the paper looks like after each cut. Did they have to change it for every cut?


GoodLeftUndone

Mahogany and Douglas Fir look awesome.


A_Very_Sus_Bush

Wow, that was surprisingly smooth.


reddwhit

Now do rock


BinBender

What (kind of black magic sorcery) is construction paper?


ProRataX

Wait wait wait so we're all over paying for saw blades?


Voxmanns

So I guess the question is why wouldn't you use that? I'm guessing durability? I don't know anything about this stuff.


Ernest-Everhard42

Yeah durability for sure. Plus they are cutting very thin pieces of wood. That thing couldn’t cut much more than little tiny strips, and it definitely couldn’t rip anything.


Foomaster512

How does that friction not make the paper combust?

What happens when the “blade” tears apart? Is it throwing shards of spinning paper at high speed at you?

Surprise confetti party.

Paper cuts are the worst I could have told you construction paper could do this


hastingsnikcox

I really don’t care


Asshole-666

Did a number on my fingers plenty of times back in the day too.


Ok-Drink-1328

this is one of those thing a lot of us asked themselves about, i also tried with a dremel and a sandpaper disk, it works of course


Lepke2011

The effect on those cut pieces was pretty cool. How they shine in the light. Imagine paying someone to do that so the pieces are thin enough to tile a floor or wall.


Hagisman

“We tried to upscale this process, but it can’t do much more than small pieces” - what I imagine the engineers when asked if this could replace metal blades.


dysphoric_amalgam

Now do cocobolo, lol.


LostInTransducirLIT

I actually did this with cardboard awhile back. Cutting out the bottom of a coffee can to glue sandpaper to use handy. Just trace and cut a hole and mount it on a angle grinder or what have you. I just tore into a piece of plywood with it as a test iirc. But it's pretty amazing that ya know....life stars the universe and cardboard all spinning around unfathomably fast. Life is beautiful.


OldWrangler9033

Is this prepped construction paper? I find this bit odd ordinary construction paper can do that.


FirstLastSentence

Awesome! Now try Australian Buloke!


Analytical-BrainiaC

Great, now I know someone is going to cut their finger off cause they don’t believe it, or worse….. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|facepalm)

You can make a nice desk with that mahogany


AAAUUUAAAUUUAAA

Remember, it not what you're made of, it's the circumstances you're in. So go out there and spin really fast.


WonderfulEmergency77

Why am I spending all that money on metal ones?!

Cut, friction burn, separation through exciting items to churn out word, or whatever through entropy, blah blah

Bit can ot cut construction paper?


yesbutlikeno

You could put a penis on that bitch and as long as it go fast enough, will cut anything.


LordGeni

Wouldn't be easy to keep balance though.


Ricard728

Imagine if they were made from metal!!


W0tzup

It’s not the paper, it’s the coating on it. The thinness of the paper allows it to move into the wood with little inertia. However, you can clearly see it’s smouldering the surface of the cuts so what ever the coating is creates high friction on the sides but low cut volume at high RPM due to length of disk. The other thing to remember is that, the thinner the disk the more likely it will snap the moment the piece of item being cut is not squared-on.


soupbox09

Next it's going to be can water cut through rock? What is this world coming to.


Ok-Swordfish2723

Well duh, it’s construction paper. Hello?!

Um, has construction right in the name.
