    photos would be nice you can take them uploadto internet and use punctuation in your text makes it more clear to read thx.

    Amount of experience is in direct proportion to the value of broken equipment.

      Ditto on what Jaakko said; capitalization and punctuation improve readability a lot.

      As far as the hacksaw.... I'm not very familiar with power hacksaws, but I do know that there should be some sort of arrangement the lifts the blade off the workpiece on the back stroke. Perhaps with that in mind you can look at the mechanism and All Will Become Clear, or at least slightly less muddy.

          Plugging that name into a search engine brings me Ebay Austrailia. No power hacksaw but sowing machines....where you from?

          Hacksaws are crude, rude and damn near indistructable compaired to band saws!
