The 20-115 uses a quick release lever at the front of the saw. Opening the level by hand with a forward motion will unlock the blade tension allowing you to replace the blade. Pull the level closed to restore tension to the new blade.

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.

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.

STANLEY QUICK POINT BLADES...CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO CHANGE.


There is a SLOT in the end of the knife. Simply insert the strip of new blages in to the slot and you are ready to go.

Good luck. :)
