Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

I recently got hurt at work and place on limited duties; one of my assignments is to build a “Chalk Saw.”

Does anyone here belong to a dept that has a chalk saw and have a copy of the plans/"blueprints" to build one?

I’m mostly looking for the blueprints/plans, not just a picture of it.

I've got to say that this is a new one on me, but I found this on Google. May be what you want. It looks pretty easy to cobble this together. I hope this helps. Get well quick. Ben. FTM-PTB
Hey Oscar,

This is new to me as well...You really do learn something new every day!

The link Ben provided has a good image and explanation for anyone else that was curious, as I was.

Take Care...BE SAFE!!! Scott
