Si.

That does look great.  I picked up a saw at the local hardware (Ace) store. 
It looks pretty good and the first cuts were satisfactory. 

But it is one of the "adjustable" for 12" or 10" blades.  I never use 10" blades. 
I have not had long term good luck with adjustable hack saws.

It will hold me for the time being, but we shall see.

I note a garage sale in the community with a sign that says "man stuff". 
I am going to go check that out.

Hi Reg  :wave:


Gee ! ... You made me think ...  L:

... Have I ever even SEEN a 10" hacksaw-blade ?  ???

Once ... maybe ...  :old dude:

... I think it might be the one mounted in my 'frameless handle'.  :)


All the 3 previous hacksaws I have used ... 

... were all adjustable, using either a hinged-frame, or sliding-frame.


:java::moose: :dt:

Another enforced absence. 

On the day my wife received the news,
that she needed three-way bypass heart surgery,
I came down with shingles.  

I have been unable to work in my shop for over two months. 
And the pain is not over yet. 

I will be back... I just don't know when yet.

I am thinking I will present some information on my vertical mill.
