Re: Wtb power hacksaw blades

No power hacksaw ... blasphemy!
In a shop environment they are to slow versus a big band saw .
I wouldn't be without mine though , with a coarse tooth it cuts faster then my 4x6 bandsaw . And square .

Re: Wtb power hacksaw blades

I've tried that , it works ok with finer pitch blades 12-tpi on up . But unless you design in a way to really tension the blade they are kinda flexible and don't cut all that straight with courser tooth blades . . Nice stiff hss blades work so much better and last and last and last . But I'm not a s...

Re: rings in work piece

When I got my lathe I knew absolutely nothing about machine tools . I didn't know a thing about cutting tools and I had zero budget left after buying the lathe . So I bought a box of the harbor frieght brazed carbide tools and a box of assorted hss blanks . In short order I had chipped broke or othe...
