The crossbow, which also features a green 30mW DPSS laser for aiming, starts by spinning the mini buzz saw blades using a small electric motor – then it fires the tiny spinning projectiles wherever the laser is pointed.
It looks awesome, but after seeing the video I couldn’t help but think that it was a tad under-powered. Shooting watermelons and slicing sausages might be a lot of fun, but normal crossbow bolts would definitely do a lot more damage.
From the maker:
“It shoots 50mm steel buzz saw blades, 0.8mm thick, made by PROXXON Germany.
A electric motor makes it rotate, before its accelerated on its lil slide, towards the open end of the crossbow.
Runs on 4 Li Ion cells 18650…green 30mW DPSS laser for aiming.”
