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.
I owned a older version of this saw. The tensioner adjuster fit in the handle after tensioning. This way you could cut flush. This model it protrudes. The old model Also used a thumb screw not requiring a Phillips. Also it was much sturdier. This one the blade had already popped of once. The nubs for holding the blade seem off as well. My old one was blue. If you can find it I would get it instead of this one
I love how sturdy this Hack saw is and it deep enough to cut large pipes. Very well made and glad to have it added to my tool chest
Very sturdy. Does a great job. Easy to change blade.
Well your ToolSet is never complete without a good Craftsman hachsaw. I didn't have a need as I used my Grandpa's old one till it gave out. It wasn't a Craftsman but nostalgic as it was I used it. Thanhs Shop Your Way. I had the points and bought it.
This product was purchased to do a kitchen sink repair (cutting the pipe). It is made by Craftsman and is made of high quality materials just as Craftsman always does. It is better quality than any of the others I have purchased and the blades are much simpler to change out. It cut through the pipes and did the job with ease. I love Craftsman and always this one was excellent quality and affordable. I'm gradually building up my home tool box and this made a great addition.
This hacksaw got a great review from "This Old House." After I bought it, I can see why. Great hacksaw and I got it at a great price. It's rugged and I believe it'll last a long time.
Perfect size hacksaw.
