tip of the day
« on: August 28, 2021, 05:18:55 PM »
hi I got asked a Strang question today why did I have three hacksaw's  (any one no the answer )  well  instead of keep  changing the blade in the one hacksaw for ether  a 18 teeth blade or a 24 or a 32  just have three hacksaw's   with one of the  blades  fitted so you have one with a 18 teeth blade and one fitted with a 24 teeth blade and one fitted with a 32 teeth blade don't have all the hacksaw frames the same you will soon get to no witch frame has wat blade in it by the different look of etch frame  :thumbup:

Great tip,
Alas no room for more tools hanging on the wall. Plus, being lazy I tend to use whatever blade is in the saw at the time unless I have a lot to do that cannot be done in my small portable band saw.
   Sad isn't it!   :doh:

Another forum im on had a guy selling an angle grinder because "he didnt need 3"....

The shouts suggesting 4 or 5 to be the absolute minimum saw him withdrawing it from sale.
Metal cut off, metal grind, flap, wire wheel, tungsten cut off, plus at least one to be able to swap around, maybe a larger one,....

Although he was a wood guy.

Yes, agree 100%.  I have 4 and I still have to change discs.
