Pedal Powered Hacksaw Machine Project Report | Mechanical Farm provides the best BE project ideas for mechanical engineering students and researchers to help them find the projects ideas. Our list consists of the finest and most innovative topics and projects for mechanical engineering final year. We have widest ideas for engineering project for mechanical


Pedal powered hacksaw machine is a machine which can be used for industrial applications and Household needs in which no specific input energy or power is needed. This project consists of a crank and slider mechanism. In the mechanism pedal is directly connected to the hacksaw through crank and slider mechanism for the processing of cutting the wooden blocks, metal bars, PVC materials. The objective of the modal is using the conventional mechanical process which plays a vital role. The main aim is to reduce the human effort for machining various materials such as wooden blocks, steel, PVC etc.

The power hacksaw machine, which runs on human power, works on the principle of the conversion of rotational motion to oscillatory motion. Importance of this project lies in the very fact that it is green project and helps us to reduce our electricity need. Secondly, this cutter can be used and transferred to our working place easily.  Moreover, if we want we can generate electricity with our project by connecting it to dynamo, diode and battery.

Main Components of Pedal Powered Hacksaw Machine :-

  • Pedal
  • Sprocket
  • Chain
  • Crank
  • Connecting Rod
  • Flywheel
  • Clutch
  • Bearing Blocks
  • Brake
  • Hacksaw
  • Blade

WORKING PRINCIPLE of Pedal powered hacksaw machine

It consists of the pedal arrangement which rotates the crank and through it   slider consists of oscillating mechanism. The power is transmitted to the crank and slider mechanism. This mechanism is used to rotate the crank disc; the disc which is having an extended rod is connected to the sliding portion of the hacksaw directly by means of a linkage. The hacksaw is passed through the guide ways by means of maintaining the cutting axis. As the user operated the pedal, the hack saw cuts the various materials automatically with less power. The dead weight is for compressive force while the user operated the foot pedal. 

Advantages of Pedal Powered Hacksaw Machine: –

  • Time saving as compared to simple hacksaw
  • Power saving as it is manually operated
  • Easy machinery used
  • As it is pedal operated so good for health
  • Comfortable then ordinary hacksaw
  • It is portable
  • It could be used wherever metal cutting is done in small scales, including at construction sites and furniture units, or to cut metal for window panes.

Disadvantages of Pedal Powered Hacksaw Machine: –

  • It’s totally manually operated
  • Time consuming as compared to electrical power hacksaw
  • Without human effort it’s not operated
  • Not fit for heavy production
