Re-purpose broken metal cutting bandsaw blades to make metal ripping hacksaw blades for quickly cutting through solid stock.
NOTE: these are not suitable for thin walled steel.

Great idea, and not scroogy or chintzy at all. The increased pitch of bandsaw blades will reduce labor on heavy cuts, the raker set outdoing wave set [like a hacksaw blade] six ways from Sunday.
But may contest self-labeling as Ultimate Scrooge!

Great idea both with the bandsaw blade and the carbide burrs. I have a small power hacksaw that only takes 10” blades and they are almost impossible to find in NZ. I will now be able to take standard 12” blades and shorten the hole spacing using the burrs. Why didn’t I think of that before. Thanks for the idea.
Excellent video!! Thank you for posting!!
I have used a similar method to shorten a standard 10" blade to fit an antique Union hacksaw frame that uses 8" blades. Great topic!
