Turning—Two-way chainsaw / Tool

Turning—Two-way chainsaw
Turning—Two-way chainsaw

For the traditional electric saw is only a vertical or horizontal one-way tool, Turning was made as an upgraded version of the traditional one. With a changeable transmission shaft structure and two using directions, Turning provides more feasibility for use in many scenarios under the premise of the driving force can be used normally.
Furthermore, we investigated the existing tools in the market and set two themes for use: sawing and grinding. Basing on the theory of ergonomics, we have changed the structure and style of the grip, and adopted the oval grip with a turning point to enhance the user's using feelings.
