    @Bendalevlogs You’re right….plus the hacksaw frame would not allow you to properly finish off your cut. A little backsaw is good (like the one I used) as you have good control over it, not to mention you can pick one up at the hardware store for around $5. I use my little cheap backsaw for lots of stuff. It comes in handy….I always keep it around, just in case. Thanks for watching the videos. Cut on! Joe :0

    @67tr876 That’s great to hear that you’re taking a construction class. Pretty soon, I’ll be asking you for your help……when videojoe”doesn’t”know lol. All the best with that. Joe :0

    @VideoJoeKnows you make a good point, i did not think of the frame hitting the wall. you would scratch up you paint/wallpaper and thats never good

  5. VideoJoeKnows says:

    @jenzeppelin Well Jen…..when are you going be starting “your” hardwood laminate floor? Thanks for continuing to watch the videos. Joe :0

  6. VideoJoeKnows says:

    @Bendalevlogs I would hesitate to make your cuts with a hacksaw. The blade cuts really fine & would have a tendancy to bind the deeper it gets into the wood. Another thing is you will have difficulty finishing off your cut up against the wall, as the hacksaw frame will start hitting before the actual blade can cut the rest of the way through. Thanks for your question. Drop me a line anytime you have a howto question….I am here to help you with your howto projects. Keep watching. Joe :0

  7. @jenzeppelin Thanks jen ! I have been building stuff seen i was like 3 lol and am a big hands on guy too. Am in to a lot of that type of stuff with motors and building. So ya i dont have time for video game’s lol but i still play them. Ya my family likes to get me to fix or building something for them. Am taking construction class in my school to and hope next year to get an apperntership as an electrican.

    wouldn’t it be easier to use a hack saw with the blade set at the horizontal position?

    @67tr876 Putting in a floor? I’m blown away by the stuff you do! Most guys your age spend 24/7 playing video games and doing nothing else, acquiring zero skills. Your family must be in awe of you! What you do is so awesome!
