Junior hacksaws are a smaller version of the large hacksaw and handy for cutting a range of materials including plastic, metal and wood.
A junior hacksaw is the small variant, large mechanical hacksaw that is used to cut working pieces from bulk metal and rigid plastic. It is also used to cut different types of wood with small cross-sections such as timber mouldings.
A junior hacksaw is smaller than a standard hacksaw and is ideal for cutting small delicate pieces of different types of wood. Also, being smaller it is easier to use in confined spaces. The metal blade of a junior hacksaw is held in place by the sprung loaded U-shaped frame. Junior hacksaws are the small variant of mechanical normal sized hacksaws and are used to cut small working pieces from a large chunk of metal. They are usually half the size of the normal hacksaws.
All junior hacksaws use the same blades. The best is the simplest. The ends of the frame are set slightly further apart than the length of the blade, so you have to press the end of the saw against a firm surface to fit or remove a blade.
