  • Mighty Mike

    We used to be able to buy a small hacksaw with a 1/2" wide blade called a "Mighty Mike". This was bigger than the Tiny Tim saw, bu the blade was held in by spring pressure similar to the Tiny Tim. Anyone know if these are still available?

    I had to look at the calendar to see if it was the first of April.
    Couldn't find any Mighty Mike saw's.
    Then I looked up Tiny Tim. Lots of them available.

    Then for the heck of it I looked up Terrible Terminator little saw from the deep. None of those either.

        Great for cutting the abs stubs in the cabinet. Not so good for copper or closet bolts.

        Have't needed 1 for years with the newer abs slicers.

          The Pasco 4290 is a Tiny Tim. We like the "Mighty Mike" for cutting tubular tail pieces and tail-piece extensions. They are called ABS, but in reality they are polypropylene and crack easily. The thin blade on the Tiny Tim makes it more difficult to cut the tailpieces straight. Regarding the "Mighty Mike" name; that's what I was taught they were called. Interestingly, my helper calls then a "Notso", as in Not So tiny, Tiny Tim! I post a pic later.
