I was looking at some power saws on Ebay and on one of them they said
that the saw was a worm drive. I dont understand this. Are the worms
inside the saw? What do they do to make the saw work? The picture
they showed had an electric cord on it. If the worms are driving the
saw why does it need to be plugged in? Of course I know that
sometimes Ebay sellers dont show the actual picture. Then, how do I
feed these worms? They got to eat something. What happens when they
die, can I order more of them, or can I get them from a bait shop?
They sure come out with some strange devices these days, and I cant
see how a bunch of worms would run around in there to make the saw
turn, but if it cuts wood, thats what counts.
Not sure if you are messin' or what, but a worm drive is somewhat like
a circular saw but they are slightly larger and instead of driving the
blade directly with the motor, the blade is drive by a worm gear and
shaft from the motor. It results in a very powerful and very smooth
and somewhat quieter saw. it is very good for smooth and controlled
The worms are inside the saw and they eat the wood instead of having a
blade to cut it. This eliminates the sawdust generated by conventional
electric saws. You will have to use the saw once a week if you don't
want to replace the worms. The cord in the picture you saw was
actually for powering the conventional saw-cutting sound generator.
It's the same with the new electric cars. They're fixing to put "Vroom"
generators on the electric cars so they make normal car sounds so
people know they are running.
No matter what happens, someone will find a way to take it too
