Reciprocating Machine Hacksaws or Power Hacksaws were once common in schools and used for cutting metal stock to length - especially larger sections.
Features and Applications
Blades commonly used are 300mm long and 10 or 12 tpi but other lengths and pitches are available for different materials and larger machines.
The nature of much D&T work now in schools relies generally on lighter sections and so cutting metal stock to length can now more quickly be done using a Chop Saw and Metal Cutting Bandsaws are available to cut larger sections.
