Hack saws refer to a type of hand saw designed for cutting through various materials, particularly metal. A hack saw consists of a rigid frame with a thin, replaceable blade that has small, closely spaced teeth. The frame typically has a handle at one end for gripping and applying force while cutting. Hack saws are commonly used in construction, metalworking, and other trades for tasks such as cutting pipes, rods, and metal bars. They provide a controlled and precise cutting action, allowing users to make clean and accurate cuts.
