I have to get rid of the power hacksaw pictured in my first post in this thread ( http://www.homeshopmachinist.net/bbs/showpost.php?p=220328&postcount=1 )

Supposedly, the forum allows you to e-mail me directly by viewing my public profile.

It's free for the taking, but you've got to pick it up. It's a mess, and has no motor, or motor mounts, but it's free!

E-mail me, I don't want to scrap it if someone wants it - but don't delay, sometime in the next few weeks I'm going to need the storage space it's in.

Dan, your location would be of benefit to anyone interested.

In the linked thread...in my last post...I mentioned that I'm near the 57 and 91 freeways in Southern California.

Also, if you read the linked thread fully, you'll see that C-Ross of this board is familiar with the grime found on the machine - that of sitting around in a dirty, oily environment for many (20+) years without being touched - and may be able to offer tips or consolation should you choose to undertake a cleaning. Ross was the one who picked up that little horizontal mill I gave away back at the beginning of the year.

Darn, Too bad I live in Illinois! Could never pass up a free tool.

I knew a girl like that once.

"I knew a girl like that once." lol

Are you referring to girl who sat "around in a dirty, oily environment for many (20+) years without being touched", or who "could never pass up a free tool"?


07-17-2006, 01:22 PM
She was a tool "collector". :D

Sorry Dan, again a case of engaging mouth prior to engaging brain.

I'll keep this thread active for a while, in case someone who doesn't visit the forum all the time comes along.

Out of interest , how did C Ross make out with the horizontal mill,up and running?

last I heard, he had it painted and was preparing to begin re-assembly after making a few other parts - but then he had to go on a vacation or other trip and thus is on hold for a while - into August I think?

it's looking really good compared to how it looked when it left here.

no one is interested in this? I realize it's dirty - not by my choice...but it *is* free.

I'd be glad to take it off your hands but I'm tied up for the next week or so. After that, I've got some free time. Drop me a line if that works for you.

welcome to the forum, and I can wait that long. You're the first serious inquiry so as far as I'm concerned it's yours.

That's one way to get the lurkers out of the woodwork. Offer cool free stuff. :D

07-23-2006, 01:59 AM
yeh, I'm somewhat of a lurker. I post on occasion at Practicalmachinist but don't have much reason to post here (or there) as most of my questions are answered without asking. Dan, I'm in Santa Monica and can come by weekday or weekend, whichever works best for you, let me know.

I'll send a PM to you bobo.

Ok, since bobo hasn't been able to make it, nor contact me back - I've still got this saw *FREE* for the taking. It's an interesting little item - though it's probably not very valuable, and needs to be cleaned up big time.

Once again - I'm in Southern California in Fullerton, near the intersection of 91 and 57 freeways.

Since we're a business shop - it's available during the week between 8 and 5 most days with expanded hours when necessary.

Send me a private message or e-mail and I can provide more details and a phone number.

09-15-2006, 07:43 AM
Craig, I sent you a PM. The email link in your profile didn't work. I'm interested in the saw and I'm local.

Dan Craig
09-15-2006, 08:02 PM
I saw that. I'll reply in a little while.

I don't mean to hyjack your thread, but I have one that has a 1 HP motor on it. Much newer version though, are these powered hacksaws worth anything. The hacksaw is all factory built and had several scarrett blades that came with it. I have a large bandsaw so the hacksaw sits in the corner, very nice old piece.

are you giving your hacksaw away gearhead?

if so, where are you located? or even any pics?

I'm not interested but others might be.

09-17-2006, 07:43 PM
Naw, mine is not a give away, I will post some pictures if I can figure out how...Maybe someone can tell me about the history of it and the going price... I don't use it, but it is kind of a neat piece, works really good.

oh well. pics would be cool.

mine is finally on to a better home - at least it's out of my shop and the dirt and oil that go along with it.

09-19-2006, 08:26 AM
Dan, I want to thank you again. I'm not sure it's a better home, but it is appreciated. I've started the clean up and I should have some pictures soon.

I already have a machine hacksaw but I'm interested in the "Free Power".
I think thre's a whole thread searching for it too ;)
