14.2 Hack Saw
A hack saw can be used in many situations. Always cut at right angles to the job. Use a wedge to alleviate pressure on the blade. Cut as close as possible to a supported section of the metal.
Cutting may be assisted by using a solution of 6:1 water detergent to lubricate hacksaw cuts.
