Lightweight Weed Whacker

By Jason Jaeger |
0 BUMPS

I set out to see if I could make a lightweight weed whacker that would be good for urban dwellers with small yards. The end result is 3.3 lbs. and has a top speed of around 9.8k rpm! Most cordless weed whackers I could find are around 9 lbs., and my friend's gas powered weed whacker topped out at 6,500 RPM. I ultimately code named the project FeatherWhip and made a snazzy logo for it 'cause that's how I roll.

This list does not include the various 6-32 machine screws, nuts, wires or tools used.  Hopefully these are things you have lying around your shop, otherwise a hardware pack might be a good idea to get you started.
