    Hell, if it didn't cost so much for shipping, I have a couple Sawzaws and I would give him one. I would. I like it when he came back and said he needed a bit of a rest after that. "We would, too!"--Slasher

    My arms hurt in solidarity. Or proxy. Or maybe flashbacks. That was a great deal of sawing.

    It holds the blade true, and tight the frame never flexes so cuts can be made with machine quality.
    I tend to be as particular about the way it gets used as I am with my files.

    One of the first tools I ever bought new was one of these branded as Lenox Hackmaster. I'll be honest that the name was part of the reason that I bought it. I've since bought a second one used that has a thumbscrew instead of a fold-out crank.
