Hacksaw improvement DIY
A quick and dirty guide…
No rocket launch, but hopefully pleasure in the work shop.
This time it’s more about use than beauty…
I have had this little hacksaw since as long as I can remember, and I like to use it on small jobs. This type of saw is in almost any toolbox in Denmark I think, and handy but not a big pleasure to hold.
So inspired by Rob Cosman, I decided to do something simple yet effective about the problem.
This is what I did.
1. Wrap a piece of rope around the handle.
2. Here the before picture.
3. Make a good knot at the end of the rope so it will not get loose.
4. Now time for some sports tape, cotton tape.
5. Wrap up that handle.
6. And here we are a reborn hacksaw, now a pleasure to use.
Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps even some hacksaws with new handles,
