Thread: Junior hacksaw blades

Make the blades from broken bandsaw blades.

I doubt there are any wood blades, they wouldn't be accurate enough.

Having said that:

While on the subject of junior hacksaws, they make very good pruning saws.

Use a woodworking bandsaw blade, cut to length and drilled for small self tappers.

Used on the pull, watch your fingers.

Hi Duncan,

"That would be neat, but what would I make it from bearing in mind it will be 4mm diameter or less."

Make it from anything that floats.

If your liquid is water, oil based liquid will float, I was thinking polystyrene or similar.

You are a man of many talents, think outside of the box, or in your case, tube.

If I'm talking rubbish, I haven't read all your posting.

Defence rests..........

Would a solid float work, sitting on top of the water?

Good luck, Bear..
