I needed a pad saw for a particular job and came across this hacksaw in the Screwfix catalogue. It's a handy tool to have in the workshop as it can be used two-handed and get into awkward places.

I've thoroughly given up on Irwin products now, this being the last straw (the last saws I bought were blunt within a day or two's use and their pipe bender is identical to the no-brand Chinese ones, just with a different colour).
The idea is great, the execution is somewhat less so - no matter how hard you tighten the screw, the blade slips out almost constantly on the cutting stroke.
I ended up giving up and using the blade on its own with a bit of duct tape wrapped around for a handle - got the job done in less than half the time I had already wasted trying to get this thing to work.

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.
