With two metal cutting band saws a few feet from our workbench, we still often find ourselves reaching for a hacksaw. To trim a screw to length or make the initial cut on a barrel, the hacksaw is sometimes the better choice.
Over the years we have tried many saws and have been less then satisfied with the frames we have been using. Finally fed up with our menagerie of old saws, we ordered a DeWalt DW3970 high tension hacksaw frame and couldn’t be happier. The frame is solid, comfortable and holds blades taught. Everyone who has picked it up and made a cut has been impressed.
If you are struggling with your current hacksaw, we feel this is a worthwhile investment.
