Craftsman 12 in. Hacksaw, Convertible/Heavy Duty
- Built-in blade storage in handle holds up to 12 blades (replacements sold separately)
- 4-1/8 in. depth of cut
- Fits 12 in. blades
I picked up this saw at a recent trip to my local Sears store. I had my doubts about buying because there are many hacksaws available on the market for 1/2 the price. I was drawn to the weight of the saw and its balanced feel in my hand. Blade changing is easy and the D-handle is very convertible. In the end I am happy I paid the extra few dollars. This will probably be the last hacksaw I ever buy.
Pick one up today, you'll thank me tomorrow!
This is a sturdy saw. The included blade is pretty weak. The screw to hold in the spare blades inside the spine is too stiff to turn by hand making it much less convenient.
This is a great hacksaw. I had a really flimsy one that I always struggled to use for so many years. When I finally bent the back, I went straight to Sears to purchase a new one. I really wish I had bought one of these years ago. The handle is very comfortable and the body is very sturdy. The difference between my old and this one is evident. It makes cutting so much easier. In addition, the "spine" of the hacksaw has a hidden compartment to store extra blades. This is such a convenient and well added modification. Overall, this is a fantastic hacksaw.
light weight & durable,can store extra blades
I would compare this to my 'old school' (Euro) hacksaw in every way. The backbone is extremely stiff which makes for super straight/stable cuts. The quality and price just can't be beat.
Have two other hacksaws, but neither was really up to doing some of the jobs I tackled where a hacksaw was needed. This is heavy duty enough and provides enough clearance to hold both ends of the saw so you can insure a straight start to your initial cut
Worked great for the small plumbing job I used it on. Was able to get the blade into tight spaces and still have control of it. Price was right, blades seem universal; very happy with it
A very nice but heavy hacksaw. Stability is good and I expect this to last. Blade insertion is quick and easy. Just a little bulkier than the usual hacksaw.
I was able to use this to cut through cardboard boxes and thin tree stumps and shrubs. It's not that heavy so it can be used for quite some time without tiring your arms.
Make sure you get the rubber cap at the end of the saw.
This is a standard designed hacksaw. Feels real solid in your hand. It has good feedback when in use. Good control over the speed and accuracy of the cut. Fairly quick blade change without any issues.
easy to use and durable
