Kinda a stupid question I know but I have a really cheap junior hacksaw, the kind that is just a metal frame, like this: http://www.foxdiy.co.uk/view_product.php?product=TL326 but can't for the life of me get the new blade to go in. I have tried squeezing the handle together with a pair of pliers but that still didn't bring the two ends close enough together to be able to fit the blade. Any help appreciated!

handle has nothing to do with it.

you push the opposite end in from the handle.
holing the handle push against something solid (wall?)

BUT, be carful as it may slip

just to add to breezers comments


you want to position the frame opposite the handle with the blade in against somthing solid with the frame supported just below the blade grab the handle and lean on it as said abouve carefully cos it will slip easily

Thanks guys. Was a struggle but I got there in the end! Think I'll buy an easy-blade-change model next time the blade needs changing!

Thought I would just add - remember that a hacksaw blade should have the teeth facing forwards icon_smile.gif

part off the problem with junior hacksaws is the lack off strength off the frame so if you have the teeth forward pointing it pulls against front off the frame and can case the frame to close up and loosen on the blade which can take the tension off the the blade and cause it to cut off line kink the blade or even make it fall out
