These holes are used for mounting the blade in to the frame.

use a press to push out the rubber and then use a hacksaw blade to cut through remove the blade and pass it through the hole and then do the hack saw back up.. Then use something like a flat blade screw driver and drive it between the body and the metal insert and break next to where you have 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.

How do i change a blade for a zona mini hack saw?


Hello there.
The TENSION in the frame holds these blades in their slot.
What you do is
1) turn the saw upside down so the blade is pointing upwards.
2) Hold the handle of the saw tight against your tummy or if you have strong arms just your hands So the saw faces away from you.
3) Put the far end of the frame against a hard surface like a wall or bench.
4) Push the handle against the force and you will see the FRAME bend very slightly, this will allow you to push the blade out of its slot.
Engage new blade at the handle end then do the reverse of the above to allow the other end of the blade to go in the slot .

DONE !!!

Remove broken key from egnition


Hi

Use needle-nose pliers to pull the broken key out, if there is enough of it sticking out of the ignition to grab. Put a little melted wax, Museum Putty or Super Glue on the pliers before you grab the key.

Make sure that the ignition is in the "neutral" position so that the tumblers are not gripping the key. If it is in the locked position, insert a thin hacksaw blade--with the teeth facing up--next to the broken key, and turn the ignition to the "neutral" position.

Pull gently up on the hacksaw blade. If you are lucky, the teeth will grab the key and slide it out. Try this with the hacksaw blade behind the key, and again on top of the key. Most keys have a groove on them that the hacksaw blade can grab, so wiggle and twist the hacksaw blade around and see if you can feel it catch the key.

Try using the hacksaw blade and the pliers together--pushing with the blade and pulling with the pliers.

Cut or break a six- to eight-inch piece off of a wire coat hanger and use your pliers to fashion a small hook at the end. Slide this into the ignition behind the key and try to grab it. If that doesn't work, insert the wire in front of the key and try again.

Spray a little cooking spray or WD-40 into the ignition and try again with the hacksaw blade. Remember to try both in front of and behind the key, and to wiggle the blade. Do not spray the lubricant before trying the pliers or wire, because now your key is not only stuck, it is slippery.

Call a locksmith if the above steps do not work. Do it before you get too frustrated, because it is much cheaper to replace a key than it is to replace a key and a shattered ignition.

SPARK GAP FOR 1990 TOYOTA COROLLA I bought NGK G-POWER PLATINUM SPARK PLUGS Looking everywhere - I checked all the panels under the hood and I don't have a car manual for my 1990 4 cyl 1.6 litre 4-door...


Do you happen to have a hacksaw blade? The thickness of the hacksaw blade is equal to the clearance of the
spark plug contacts. You can put the hacksaw blade flat
between the contacts, and make the necessary adjustment. Then, start your engine. Send in your e-mail
so we will know.

Bought a junior hacksaw which the blade comes upside down in. Tried twisting the frame to get the blade out but can't. Any ideas please?


To remove the blade from the junior hacksaw, hold the handle and push the other end against something (like the floor) to carefully bend the frame and un-clip the blade.

Security screws on bottom of coffeemaker


I took a small (cheap) slot screwdriver with a blade just wide enough to fit into the wide part of the screw. I then took a hacksaw to the center of the screwdriver blade. This works best if the hacksaw blade is fairly thick. The idea is to remove enough of the center of the screwdriver blade so that the screwdriver can be inserted into the screw allowing the hacked out area of the screwdriver blade to fit around the stupid center post of the screw. The screws on mine weren't that tight, so I could turn the screws without twisting the screwdriver blade.
