Step 1: Parts
- Hacksaw blade
- Duct tape,
I used a 32 tooth per inch (TPI) blade since I was going to use it to open boxes, but feel free to use whatever TPI you would like.
Step 2: Create Handle With Duct Tape
Create a handle by wrapping the hacksaw blade with duct tape. Wrap it a number of times to create a large enough handle to grip.
Step 3: Build Out Handle
Add more duct tape to build out the handle so that it can be gripped.
Add extra layers to cushion it.
The completed saw can be used for light sawing, cutting cardboard and opening/breaking down boxes.
