Paid extra for the Irwin branded saw but what a disappointment. Stripped the thread on the tightening mechanism with only minimal torque the first time I used it. Returning for a refund.

I was really stuck on a job with no space to work with a normal saw tried tin snips but was getting desperate. This tool did the job where others had failed good quality and handy tool in my arsenal.

Bought this to get into a tight space. It got in there alright, then the blade snapped off never to be seen again. The securing screw snapped, would have been more rigid if it was sellotaped on. Terrible design, why are you even selling this Screwfix? Avoid at all costs.

Stress purchase bought on a Sunday.
Couldn't undo the blade securing screw, but did in the end! Fitted new blade and on tightening the screw the screw side of the blade slot just broke off. Had to secure blade by drilling a hole though the hacksaw blade and fitting a nut and bolt, this is how it should have been designed. Examined the broken bit and the material appears to be what used to be called "monkey metal" totally unsuitable material!
