A flimsy sheet of paper gives the mother of all cuts to a strip of wood in a new viral video.
John Heisz replaced his buzzsaw blade with a round piece of regular printer paper, which he then used to saw through the wood.
“And while this really doesn’t have any practical applications, it was interesting to do,” he stated.
With humidity making the paper “fairly limp with moisture,” Heisz said it was “amazing” that his experiment even worked.
He later tried to test his makeshift paper blade on a piece of aluminum, but it just “polished the edge before wearing out,” he wrote. “The abrasiveness of the paper works well on wood, but is no match for anything harder.”
