Hacksaw Tips

Here are a few tips that I'm not sure I would have thought of:

  • If you're cutting thin metal tubing, run a wooden dowel through it before cutting to prevent any crumpling or bending.

  • If you're cutting a thin metal sheet, sandwich it between two scrap pieces of wood and clap it in a vise before cutting.

  • If you're in a tight space, try reversing the blade.

  • And my favorite, perhaps because it just seems so obvious now, cut wider slots by mounting multiple blades in the saw.
