L.C. Miller’s air-powered hacksaw, the Tigair, offers all the quick-cutting convenience of a reciprocating saw, without some of the recip saw’s shortcomings. For instance, it won’t get damaged if it bogs down; it makes fine burr-free cuts with a common hacksaw blade; and you can even operate it underwater or in flammable environments.
At about 2″ wide, 6″ tall, and 16″ long, the Tigair packs a lot of power in a small package — it runs at speeds up to 1,200 spm. It cuts with standard high-speed hacksaw blades or modified reciprocating saw blades, and it weighs about 5-1/2 lbs, so you can maneuver it easily, even one-handed. The Tigair requires 6-1/2 cfm at about 90psi, so you can power it with a moderately sized air compressor. L.C. Miller doesn’t list a price, but if you’re interested you can request a quote.
