those old chainsaws lying around could be used for something else. How about a robot?
1.Chainsaws are controlled by triggers. how could you replace that trigger with an ez-b friendly part, and what part would you use?
2.Has this ever been talked about or done before?

as far as i know, Chainsaw at the end is like any motor can be use with EZB depending on it is spx via h-bridge or any interface to control its high current needs and voltage.
But you did give me a good idea for robot building/fighting club.
@Hhammoud I mean, what sort of thing would you use to control the trigger? old style chainsaws are press the trigger in farther to get more power. how could you give the ez-b control over this?
You can use the frame and use Pwm port and h-bridge controls to the dc motor ( if dc motor not else !)
Therefore, no need to worry about the trigger mechanism as you may take it out.
Just promise me you won't put a jet engine on a chain saw. I don't want my first trip to Canada to be a funeral.
i have been thinking about useing a small motor like one in a chainsaw to power an ellectric genarator and have that power all my electronics on a bot
