The Teeth Should Face Forward When placing the hacksaw blade, ensure that the teeth point forward. If the face backwards, cutting might be slow and frustrating.

Sometimes it may be necessary to modify the hacksaw to make sure the blade stays in place. Take it to a welder, who may add a weld spot to secure the blade firmly in place.

Once the sanding, filing, etc. is complete, you can pop the item out using a putty knife. Remember not to use too much force. You might break the item. Alternatively, you can put the piece in a freezer. After, one hour or 30 minutes, remove the pieces and separate effortlessly.
