  • Hacksaw for sale

    I will do a new thread on this project, it is worth pulling the pics etc together.....

    This is my little bandsaw recently made. I had it apart for painting after some testing and use so it is looking its best today.

    It takes the same blades as the 4 x 6 bandsaw that we all have and love and is slow running for cutting steel. 9 1/2" (240mm) throat.

    The main plate, legs, table and wheels are laser cut. then ~8 hours machining, assembly and fine tuning.
    There are more pictures if wanted and an untidy cad file too. Anyway, the pics.

    No outer slider. The square block is nylon and applies ~2mm preload so it runs tight. I havn't added a thrust bearing to the top either as I see most of the work being done at the bottom 10mm. It is a slow runner and the blade is well controlled with these guides.
    I had fitted bearings initially in place of the sliders but the noise of them rumbling would put your head away.

    Yes, maybe too substantialy built. This is a bit heavy. Next time the wheels will get spokes, table thinner and the frame lightening holes.

    Some more pics.

      Motor and gearbox details.





      and a vid.



      some blade slip there but you will notice the hand disappearing to adjust tension on the run.

      1400rpm > 20:1 reduction > 250mm dia wheel > 55 M/MIN......~180 feet / min


      I have the CAD file for plasma cut that could be emailed if anyone is interested and am still working on the CAD for the small parts.


      ....anyone like to buy a hacksaw????

          Looks like it cuts as good as it looks. Nice job on the design and fabrication.

              Very nice! It will surely serve you well.
              If you don’t already have one, I would encourage you to build a belt grinder for your next project.
              Have fun with it, Mike

                    Has the ban on "for sale" posts been lifted while I wasn't looking?

                      That is a pretty nice gear motor .. did you make or buy that ? It looks like it is directly driving

                        It's a very nice saw. Good finish also.... that makes it look quite "pro".

                        OSHA would force it to be shut down and moved out of the shop, but that is not a problem in the home shop, and you are out of jurisdiction.

                        (it has "pinch points" and places to catch a hand.....OSHA hates those. Me, I say it's a saw, and a person needs to watch out when using it.)

                        I believe it is a joke.... he built this, so the hand hacksaw is no longer needed....... see post #6 also.

                          Nice saw!!
                          Not to throw cold water on the project, but, his use of gloves while operating a machine, and him brushing the chips away with his hand while the saw was running made me cringe.

                            Pssst. It is humour, nothing actually for sale.

                            Now that he has this nice home-built band saw, he no longer
                            has need of his hacksaw ...
