    I have one that looks like that, just not the color scheme. I think I bought it from a tool dealer, forget what brand it is. Always have to lean the front of the saw on the floor and push to get the wheel to tighten up enough. The newer saws with more leverage are better. I lost the pins that hold the blade 35 years ago, it has nails in it now. I like the fact that they are replaceable. I think both Klein and Craftsman re-labeled tools.

    After fondling new Craftsman and Nicholson at sears, I went to OSH and they had the Bahco 325. It felt good-not-cheap. 29 bucks and no shipping now it is on the workbench. And I dug the old one (Peerless) out of my trash. I think I can fix it.

    Third the Bahco hacksaws - bombproof, easy to use and very nice price. Blades are even still made in Sweden.

    Every Bahco tool I've used has been a pleasure. I use a 317 frame which suits me because I'm light on the front hand; if you have a strong grip at the front it might not suit. Bargain bit of kit though.

    Somehow this hacksaw made its way from the THE SCHROEDER BROS. MFG. CO., TORRINGTON, CONN. to North Wales, U.K. where it dwelt in the workshop of my late father. It is now one of the hacksaws in my workshop in North Yorkshire. There are some jobs for which I prefer a straight grip over a pistol grip.
