(5) Hacksaw. This saw is 10 to 12 inches long; it has 14 to 32
points per inch (Figure 210). It is used to cut metal, such as
metal trim or aluminum thresholds. It should not be used to cut wood.
Do not use the hacksaw with heavy pressure for a long
period; stop and let the blade cool. If the blade gets too
hot, it will break.
(6) Miter Saw. A miter
saw is used with a miter box.
The saw is held in a horizontal
position and can be adjusted to
cut various angles. It is used
to cut moldings and picture
frames to fit. It can be
adjusted to cut at right angles
for small pieces of wood. To
cut a piece of molding to a
specified angle: set the saw to
the prescribed angle, insert the
piece in the proper position
against the fence, and move the
saw back and forth across the
material (Figure 211).
