I Forge Iron

Reciprical Hack Saw

Recommended Posts

Purchased this today from a boot sale.

It uses standard type hacksaw blades.

I used to use one similar at work years ago, you could also grind the blade thinner and use it like a scroll saw on metal plate.

Cost me £40 I think it was well worth it

Ayup, good find.  Die filer--which do take saw blades.  But you blew it:  With a cool tool like that around, now you opened a can of worms and have to make some really cool custom die blocks and punches to match :)

I shall enjoy using it ,I also have a No 3 & No 2 fly press so it should be very useful .

I wonder if people in the future will feel the same about 3D printers ?
