    Buy a decent Hacksaw, the type of hacksaw that takes that fitting, are cheap and nasty with the blade tending to twist, you can pick one up for a few quid.
    It is well worth the extra money for something decent.

    I found them, but not in the UK.:mad:

    Wasn't a cheap brand Eclipse,Bahco,not sure,but you don't expect some part under tension to be made from cast metal & not solid metal.

    Haven't used a hacksaw for years. Its normally grinder, sabre saw, multi tool these days.

    The Eclipse hacksaw was really good. Not sure what the back fitting was but the front had a piece of the moulding that turned to tension the blade. Then fitted back in line with the case, very neat. Always surprised they didn't do more with the "grey" range of tools as they were really good quality

    A hacksaw is lighter than a power tool, easier to use one-handed, and makes less mess than a grinder.
