    just place the prefab and position it where you want. Alter the properties of the func_movelinear at the center of the sawblade to customise the movement.

    Not understanding a basic prefab is a good example of why having a good understanding of Source can't be replaced by a resource pack, and why telling new people to download it in place of learning is a bad idea.

    this x100, he's never going to understand what he's doing if he's just placing a prefab. On that note here's an old tutorial i found on how to make one from scratch: http://tf2maps.net/threads/tutorial-the-sawmill-sawblade.6907/ The pictures are broken, but it should still be followable.

    I learned by decompiling maps and looking at how they had done things. A prefab is the same as that.

    Use func_door in place of func_movelinear, though. It's more efficient.
