Rated 1 out of 5Â by Milesfb Didnt Even Get To Use It!
This frame / handle has an inherent design flaw. It cannot take standard hacksaw blades! The problem is where the front of the blade goes into the saw, it doesn't fit so not able to put a new blade in - standard blades anyway.
Screwfix does not state this on the page for this hacksaw handle so the buyer would never know. Neither does Screwfix suggest or recommend a blade that will fit. Therefore, poor product design by Irwin and also poor show on Screwfix for not being aware of this constraint.

Strong and should last for years. Handy size and good grip.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Fontaneroplombier Eclipse wood blade fit problem
I had the same problem as the 14 March 2016 reviewer, but only with Eclipse wood blades. I had bought two saws to avoid changing blades and both were the same. 5 mins each with a flat Swiss needle file fixed them. Apart from this I would have given a higher rating. No problem if you only want to use the metal blades.

What a great bit of kit, purchased specifically to shorten some carbon fibre fishing pole top kits and it is absolutely perfect for the job. I have also used it to cut down some coach bolts for a project I have on the go in my Man cave. Faultless so far, very comfortable to use.
