You can, but its not great for the teeth of the saw and it can get tiring. if you have any powersaws with metal cutting blades, that works best. if not, you can use the hacksaw but i hope you don't have too much rebar to cut

Choosing the right hacksaw for your job

For every project that you want to work on, there will be a different set of tools that you will need to use. The hacksaw has different types of blades and frames that can be switched out for the different projects that you are working on.

There are three main kinds of blades that the hacksaw can use and each one has different benefits. The teeth on the hacksaw blade will range between 14 and 32 teeth per inch. The thicker the blade the fewer teeth there will be per inch on the blade. The types are regular, raker and wavy. Regular blades are good for soft metals that don't have a lot of metal and the teeth will be closed together touching and alternating left and right. The raker blade has teeth placed in sets of threes and are best used fro cutting through thick metals. The last kind of blade is called a wavy blade, on these ones the teeth are in a wave pattern that are great for making smooth cuts in hard thin metals.

When it comes to hacksaw frame types there are two types to look at the fixed frame and the adjustable frame. Fixed frames are only able to hold a blade of a single sized length of blade. The adjustable frame can hold different length blades typically between 10 and 12 inches. The blades that you will buy for a hacksaw will have holes on either end of the blade. These holes are used to attach and dettach the blades from the frame.

Whatever the blade that you are using make sure that when you are sawing through metal make sure that you go slow because rubbing metal on metal will generate a lot of heat and can spark. You can also ruin the blade on your if you are sawing too quickly.

Am i better off using a hacksaw or a pipe cutter to cut the metal pipe that runs through my garden?

Although pipecutters are generally seen as giving a much cleaner and better cut than hacksaws, they are a bit limited in what they are able to cut through. Hacksaws however can cut through all sizes of plastic and metal.

Can I use a portable bandsaw to cut rebar or do I need something stronger?

you can use a portable bandsaw to cut rebar, I find it to be the best solution when I can't take the rebar somewhere to cut it. But be careful if the metal is heavy it could fall and dent/damage the floor if you're working indoors of cause injury should it land on you.

What protective gear should I wear when cutting rebar?

Wear protective gloves because rebar tends to get really hot when you're cutting it, you should also be wearing clothing that you don't mind ruining and isn't too flamable because sparks will come flying off the rebar when you cut it. Make sure to wear eye and face protection as well as sturdy shoes. This is not a job for the flip-flops!
