With years, I learned to invest in my tools and never compromise for cheaper options. This is a basic tool for any workshop or DIY person and surprisingly I always delayed purchasing a proper hacksaw. I decided it's time to stop cutting thick metal with jewelers saw (Knew concepts saws are amazing). As soon as Starrett hacksaw arrived, I tried it on a bronze billet - it was like cutting butter! It's not that expensive and proved to be an amazing tool. It arrived fast, considering COVID19. Workshop Heaven is what it's name states!
