Hacksaw like Hacksaw Jim Duggan with this homebuilt power hacksaw that will make all your manual hacksawing problems disappear.

HACKSAWING is the one onerous
shop job for which there is no
inexpensive and readily available
power tool to ease the sweat. Commercially
made power hacksaws are costly and aren’t
found in most home shops.
Here, however, is a new answer. After
several years of building and experimenting,
experts have come up with a simplified design for a homebuilt
power hacksaw at a cost that makes
it a practical tool for any shop. All parts,
except for the motor land pulley drive, can
be assembled for cheap. Any 1/3 to
1/2-hp. motor will run the machine. Any
standard 12” hacksaw blade can be used
in it.
In speed, accuracy, and capacity, the
saw rivals even big commercial machines.
It will cut stock of any size and shape up
to 3” high and 4” wide. In tests, it proved
so precise it sliced off disks from a solid
steel bar as thin as .050”.
The secret of the saw’s low cost is the
use of stock materials plus a pair of old
automobile connecting rods for the main
rocker arms-the heart of the machine.
Rocker-arm action is key to the saw’s
simplicity and accuracy. It keeps the
base rigid and at the same time lets it
move back and forth parallel to the base.
machining is necessary, and all parts are
fastened easily with bolts or rivets. The
base is simply a pair of 2”-by-2” steel angles
pinned back to back to form a sturdy Trail
backbone. Four short sections of the
same angle provide “feet” for the T rail,
Everything else mounts on top.
