Answering the important questions, and in French, no less: “Can you move in medieval armor?” Well, it appears you certainly can.

There are saws that look dangerous, and then there’s the swing saw. Take a look at this bad boy. Just a big old honkin’ exposed blade at the end of a swing arm. Guards? We don’t need no stinkin’ guards. It’s the original iteration of the radial arm saw, popular at sawmills among people who aren’t fazed by big, spinning death blades. Awesome restoration, as usual, by Hand Tool Rescue.
