Description

My fairly quick & dirty Evil Dead chainsaw for Halloween.

This is the cord-pull, grill and side handle mount for your own witch shredder. Groovy.

 Ha! Thanks! I'm flattered, but the original picture was a professional model, not mine.  I have since uploaded my own which is the first picture.  I left the professional up as well for reference.
Oh, wow. I saw all the pictures and my brain is still having trouble not seeing that first pic as a solid chainsaw through-and-through. Nicely done!

Instructions

I found that an Apple & Eve 1 gallon juice jug is the perfect size and shape for the chainsaw. If you want quick and easy, just cut off the top to allow your hand inside. If you want movie-accurate the top and handle side get cut off and replaced with a flat-top and custom handle.

I printed the vents parts with 0 in-fill and 1 shell with nice results. They are currently sized to fit the ToM print bed but remember to scale each piece equally if you adjust size.

Glue the cord block to base by lining up holes. I attached a pull-cord by knotting the rope inside. Attach the base to the jug with M3 or #6 screws, then glue the grill on.

The side handle mount was 5% fill and 1 shell. It's designed for 1" conduit and #10 x 2" screws. (I think the side mount could still be a little wider to put the handle further away from the body)

Make masonite backing plates for inside. This not only makes it stronger but it flattens out the curve of the jug sides. See picture of the inside.

I used 1/8" masonite for a 20" blade and sash chain for the... chain.

Use 3/4 - 1" dowel rod for an inside handle, the pull cord handle and for the custom top handle if desired. The lid can be reused as the gas cap and if you cut off the handle, part of that can be used for a blade cover on the body.

I used Krylon Fusion Sun Dried Tomato for the body. It's the perfect chainsaw color and is made to adhere to plastic. To make the cord-pull/grill assembly seem like it has more depth, I would recommend painting a black circle on the body before mounting everything. Use some black shoe polish for weathering. It is perfect for grime and can be built up in cracks like grease. Finally, I used Kryolan F/X blood.

UPDATE: After 2 weeks the blood is still tacky. Would recommend finding something that dries beter.

Now go carve a witch!
