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!
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 placed this order and sears cancelled it a few hours later after they took my money out of my pay pal account they still have not refunded my order this is the 2rd order I have placed with Sears where they take my money but do not deliver the other being a $799.00 treadmill they will not refund it either and it was placed on Oct. 7th can't get anyone from customer service to understand me or me them much less help I have called every phone number I can find I can not get a u.s. rep on the phone or any help from anywhere after many many hours on the phone with terrible customer service. I need my money back.
Ordered online to pickup at kmart . 3 trips and a 30 min call to find out they had canceled my order. Dont buy
