The HSS blades are used for metal cutting and fit in a hacksaw. Unlike Bi-metal hacksaw blades, the HSS blades are fully hardened for extra rigidity.
How to use a hacksaw:
- Clamp the workpiece in a vice.
- Select the correct TPI blade for the material thickness.
- Align the blade in the hacksaw with the teeth facing forward.
- The cutting action is normally in the push direction at 60 strokes per minute, using the entire length of the blade.
- Close to the end of the cut, decrease the rate of cut.
Generally speaking... The blade doesn't cut faster by leaning heavily on the hacksaw or cutting at a faster rate.
Selecting the correct blade:
