Packaging: Pack of 2
The blade fits in a hand-held hacksaw. The pins on either end are tensioned
in the hacksaw before use. The blades can be used to cut metals or plastics.
The blade can be mounted with the teeth facing towards or away from the
handle, resulting in cutting action on either the push or pull stroke.
The range of blades are available from 14 to 32 teeth per inch (TPI). The
blade corresponds to the thickness of the material being cut. There needs to be
at least 3 teeth in the material at any time for the best result.
Bi-metal vs. carbon steel hacksaw blades:
Carbon steel hacksaw blades are one of the very first hacksaw blades
available. It is more flexible, but wears down faster than bi-metal blades.
Cutting in the pull stroke increases the blade tension and will result in
greater control of the cut and extends the life of the blade.
