A hacksaw, in general, is a versatile tool that can accomplish many cutting needs when the appropriate hacksaw blade is selected. You’ll be able to saw through all types of wood (plus tree branches), metal, and plastic based projects.
Stepping up to a high-tension hacksaw provides even better capabilities, and in some cases, more features compared to basic saw models offered by the same manufacturer.
- A sturdier frame to remove flex; equating in easier, straighter and more accurate cutting.
- Option of a 45°-55° cutting angle along with the standard 90° cutting angle.
- Want extra blade storage? Most of the models listed provide that feature.
**For local purchasing, home improvement stores should carry at least one of the hacksaw models listed. Also, check the parts department of electrical and plumbing supply stores for tool buying options.
