Just got this fine hacksaw mechine running

Recommended Posts

This hacksaw I got at an auction for $3.50 ,I put a 1/3 HP motor on it and fixed a small broken cast peace. Today I bolted down to my shed floor and fired it up, it runs great and sounds like an old steam engine. Its a Fairbanks hacksaw and it looks to be pat in 1903. CUTS GREAT!!!!
