    Re: Powered Hacksaw

    I think I have 4 power hack saws. 3 are converted from line shaft drives and 1(Racine) was always a motor drive. None are painted but if someone would like to see them painted, they have my permission.

    It's hard to have a favorite hacksaw, but this old classic would be my choice. Spends most of it's time hanging around under the welding bench these days... Name:  IMG_8941.jpg

    Forget Harbor Freight... there's a better class of Chinesium out there. I doubt I have much more money in my 5x7 King than you spent on those 2 you didn't like, and it's been a new favorite tool of mine.

    Same. I bought this one new in 1999 and sold it recently when I found a used Ellis.





    Only thing I did was check adjustment, rip out the coolant system and buy quality blades.

    Pretty much the identical machine... I never used the coolant system either. The original owner never used it much so I think I might still be on the original blade... got a few bi-metals that are going to have to go into it soon though.

    Re: Powered Hacksaw

    It looks like the old style of the 4x6 saw?

    The only found was getting blades that did not break. The break long before wearing out.

    I drawings some were of Popular Mechanics hacksaw using standard blades.

    They sure aren't cheap. I like how some of the lower end ones are listed as "negotiable".

    You will note there is no OSHA presence in my shop. The one sitting in front of the Racine is the first one my father bought in the mid 1930's. I have one other one but it is buried even deeper. As mentioned earlier if anyone would like to see them painted and polished they have my permission to come here and do it.

    Looks great 👍
    I get tire of buying bandsaw blades that break at high price.

    If you look carefully at the blade on the Racine you'll see that it was broken and silver brazed to get the most out of it. The smaller saw uses a 12" blade and the
    Racine uses a 14" blade. They are not that cheap either.

    I have brazed bandsaw blades too.

    I would made a adapter to fix a standard 12".

    Re: Powered Hacksaw

    Your 14" blade is still cheaper than bandsaw blades.

    You can buy roll cut to 14" and drill hole for pin
