This ergonomic hack-saw frame, believed to be the first of its kind, offers precision cuts with approximately 40% less force than conventional hacksaws, says the company. The Sandvik 325 frame, with its Sandflex blade, features a tapered front end for easy access to hard-to-reach areas, the company says. The ergonomic design includes a front and rear rubber-coated grip; also, the frame’s elliptical shape enables users to clearly view what they are cutting, says the manufacturer. A knuckle guard provides extra safety. The blade can also be mounted at a 55-degree angle. Bahco Tools, Inc., Box 2036, Scranton, PA 18501-2036; 800-828-9893; 570-877-5687 (fax);
