Great Value Hacksaw
7 Feb 2010
By Alplumb

"Versatile hack saw, excellent for working in tight spaces where a normal hack saw or pipe slice wouldn’t be effective. Strong 250mm blade supplied also which is good value for money."

Seems to work OK

By karimiumCom

"I bought this in store on impulse did not have the benefit of reading reviews online. If I had I probably wouldn't have bought it.
Regarding blades coming loose - I can understand why people are frustrated about that. Irwin provided a philips screw with the saw. Philips are really limited in their torque. I found that I could pull the blade out of it's "pincher" by hand. I replaced the Phillips with a m4 hex bolt. Hex bolts can be torqued up higher and the blade stays put. Having said that I only used it on acrylic & wood - will cut a few bolts in the weekend and update the review if performance is bad,
I could have returned it but to be honest there aren't any other substitutes for this product out there, this is the only "handysaw" of it's type other than a draper one - so you have to make the best of what you have."

"The general product is good,however the screw that hold the blade in place is very weak and after a few uses becomes all rounded and un usable"

"Good idea but a bad design. The blade keeps slipping and I end up just holding the blade in place myself."

absolutely useless

"I didn't even get to the stage of using this, the blade retaining nut is small and made of soft metal so the blade immediately works loose potentially injuring your hand. Absolute junk."

"Just got this out of the wrapper, slid out the blade to the required length, screwed the nut back in and one side of the 'fork' where the blade slots in broke off.
Didn't even get to use it and will have to use the old method of holding a hacksaw blade in my hand until I can get my money back."

Terrible tool
30 Jun 2012
By Wockachika
, Leicester
"Like every other review says. This is a great idea for a tool but it just does not work. The screw does not grip the blade at all and so slides forward and backwards not allowing you to cut anything. Good job I tried it in the back of the van before I left the car park so could get a refund straight away and not waste time."

Chucked in the bin
16 May 2012
By KarlH
, High Wycombe
"As others have noted this has a major design flaw - the screw. Rather than going through the blade holding it in securing it in place, it goes above the blade placing it under very little tension.
When cutting the at some point the blade will slip, tightening the screw won't help and you'll just damage the head, leaving you with a useless chunk of metal."

THE WORLD'S WORST DESIGN
6 May 2011
By SPUD2000
, BRIGHTON
"What a load of Rubbish. It is a terrible design. You can't tighten the grip screw tightly enough so the blade constantly slips and doesn't allow you to cut anything.
Don't buy it is useless."

Disappointing
25 Jan 2011
By Diggle
, Huddersfield
"At first use the blade slowly slid back through the handle. This was despite the single securing screw being so tight that it could not be unscrewed. I managed to destroy the cross head slots in the screw in the the process."
