Hi Morty

You have made a great job of the restoration on this one now a few things you may want to consider.

Teeth cutting on the pull stroke with the crank turning anticlockwise.

With power hacksaw blade fitted cutting thicker material use the weight as far from the crank as possible maybe even a little more weight on the blade lifting handle and reduce the load for thin material.

A drip feed of cutting oil on the blade will greatly extend the blade life.

Fit a large sheetmetal tray under the vice to catch the swarf and cutting oil.

Best possible place for a lockdown in a workshop Stay Safe

Hi Oldvelo!

You must have read My mind! ( Wouldn't take long!!smiley)

I was going to ask about blade direction, the large one I used to use at work long ago cut on the backstroke but did not have a weight on it.

This one does rotate anti clockwise, so that answers My question!

I like the idea of a drip feed, can with a tap?

Also the drip-tray could catch any small lengths cut off.

Yes, I'm planning on staying in the workshop!

Keep Safe!

Many thanks! Cheers, Pete
