Funny thing i've just read ! . On another forum I frequent , a member was wondering what became of his fathers " 5 speed hacksaw " .

It was just an ordinary hacksaw , but the wooden handle had broken ...so it was replaced with the gear knob from an Austin Maxi...smile d

I do all my sawing mandraulically, it goes slow, very slow, very very......Ok you get the idea.

The worst ever was a 10" I beam for a house extension. I scrounged it for free, but it was too long

He must have had to push the saw nearly 12" before it started cutting if my Maxi was anything to go by.
