Power Hacksaw and Wooden Bushings


I rebuilt this Craftsman power hacksaw. It is slow, but quiet and accurate.


Above is the belt tensioning assembly.



Here is the depth stop block and switch flicker. It turns the saw off once it cuts through the material.


I gave the saw to a friend who makes longboards--he will use it for machining.

I also made some lignum vitae bushings on the manual lathe. 3/4" OD. I think they look really cool! Accurate as well, and fun to machine.
