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 purchased this a few weeks ago and I am in love with this saw. This saw is well built and the convertible jab saw is great for light uses. I used it to cut some dry wall and it worked well. Overall, a very nice saw.
This hacksaw is easy to load blades .I got a good price on this item .All my tools are Craftsman. Thanks Sears
My husband got this saw to add to his collection of Craftsman tools. He says it is exactly what he needed and is a good saw. It has a sturdy handle and a good blade.
The hacksaw is one of the nicest that I have ever had, it even has a cushion grip so it is not so hard on the hands. It also has a storage place on top of it where you can store extra blades in so if you snap one you dont have to run back to the garage and and waste time
The extra width on the upper portion of the saw is nice, a little easier on the hands when applying a lot of pressure.
tough for almost any job
Like most Craftsman products, this heavy duty 12 inch hacksaw is a good tough tool. The handle is comfortable and easy to grip, and being able to store extra blades in the hacksaw itself is an added bonus.
