Sawtooth 260 is a diagonal sawtooth that was discovered by David Bell on March 19, 2010. It is currently the smallest sawtooth in the sense that its minimum repeating population of 260 is the least of any known sawtooth.

The pattern works by using 180-degree glider reflections from the 4-engine Cordership. Two figure eights are used to delete two outbound gliders with each returning glider.

Original form

The original form of this sawtooth was discovered on July 7, 2005. It used the slightly larger 3-engine Cordership at its top-left and had a minimum repeating population of 269. On July 9, 2005 David Bell found a related sawtooth with a minimum repeating population of 262 which used the 136-cell version of the 4-engine Cordership and a period-8 reflector instead of two figure eights.
