All-Aluminum Hacksaw Frame
A die casting manufacturer is engaged in the production of an all-aluminum hacksaw frame. To affix the cutting blade to the frame, pins are required at each end; one in a fixed position, and the other in an adjustable tensioner component. The pins must be able to withstand rigorous use without failure. An added feature on this saw design are two additional pins, installed at a 45 degree tilt, to allow the user to cut very close to a wall or other obstruction. The objective for installation for all (4) pins is 30 seconds.
