  • Show us your Sears/Covel/Craftsman Powered Hacksaws

    I am interested in seeing the various Sears/Covel/Craftsman powered hacksaws and what they are mounted on.

    I would also like to see what motors have been used to power this hacksaw.

    Finally...has anyone put a variable speed motor on these saws?

    Thanks

    So no one has any of these hacksaws? ;<)

      Like this? It's mounted on some short cast legs and has a steel drip pan. I found it like this. Since these pictures were taken I added a better 1/2hp motor and a larger driven pulley to slow the strokes/minute down a bit. It works great.

        That's right.

        Since the hacksaw was sold without a stand and motor, I would think a significant number of variations of mounts and motors would have been used.

        I would also think some of the features of the stands would be transferable to the Chinese bandsaw crowd.

          They all pretty much look alike - except mine is in pieces as I'm redoing all the bushings. It has nasty chatter.

          Doesn't look this good yet: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/attach...9&d=1143222404

            I believe there are at least three versions of the hacksaw...and they are different.

            I am interested in the stands/mounting choices/motors used since the hacksaw was sold without them...which should result in a custom setup for each hacksaw out there.

              The stand mine mounts to looks pretty much like a saw horse made from angle iron. Not real elegant. It puts the saw about 24" above the floor so doesn't take up a lot of floor space. I'd have gone with a three legged bench of about the same proportions so as to prevent teetering.

              There's quite a few examples that can be seen at Google Images if you wade through the unrelated links long enough:

              The first link I posted is actually pretty nice if you have bench space available - even has a chip pan. They will creep on you, though.
