The one thing about taking some days for traveling is that i do not get shop time. when coming back there is a strong need to start/work on or end projects.
a few weeks ago dad gave me a hacksaw that belonged to his father.
cleaned it up (degreased, polished with dremel brush and 400 grit paper and put a little flash to help separate it from the other materials i usually have strung out on the work benches).
thin profile but is very rigid, especially suited for smaller diameter and detailed cuts.
