Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Giant Swiss Army Knife Repair!

Many viewers have asked about the giant Swiss Army Knife replica that lives above the lathe in Adam’s shop, and Adam takes this display down to the workbench to show you exactly what it is and how it works. And while it’s disassembled, Adam spends the day making a replacement blade to restore this prop to its full multi-bladed glory. Be prepared for some fun maths!

  1. That green/yellow wire is more likely to be a grounding-wire (PE=protective earth) which will protect you from getting zapped should the motor short-circuit. (altough, the display is fairly well protecting you from touching the motor, there’s always the freak chance of sticking your fingers inside it when it’s operational)

  2. “The perfect is the enemy of the good.”… Proceeds to make and install the knife blade backwards.
    Sorry, that’s the quality engineer in me talking.
