Thanks rustamd. Hey Ron, nice rebuild. Where are you gonna get blades for that saw? The blades for those power hacksaws are getting hard to find.

I've been getting mine from Enco. Mine is a Sears Craftsman model but is quite similar to this one.

Blades are no problem at the present. My son has a supply of blades for it that will last for awhile. The saw and blades are his. He inherited them along with the farm.

Thanks for the tip. I have an Enco catalog but don't find any power hacksaw blades listed.
It won't hurt to ask the company though.

Hey DP, that's a great looking job you did on your hacksaw. Believe it or not, I have a saw that is extremely similar to yours but is called a Racine Power Hacksaw. It has a brass War Ordinance Department tag on one leg and was apparently used at some point for WWII production, perhaps shipboard since it appears to be bolted to a piece of deck that was cut away and hauled out saw and all. Mine doesn't have the gearbox yours has but the similarity is amazing.
