Fein EBS300 / electric hacksaw

Fein EBS300
Fein EBS300

The Fein EBS 300 is an innovative interpretation of the classic saw. This rotary blade electric saw is easy and intuitive to control for the artisan,who simply applies gentle pressure against the workpiece to cut. During my research I found a standard hacksaw
and I was wondering why it hasn‘t changed for hundreds of years.
My goal was to make sawing with a hacksaw much more comfortable and simple. The asymmetric shape of the saw gives the artisan a clear view on the blade and the display on top shows the angle of the blade.
The name EBS300 stands for ‚ElektrischeBügelSäge‘ with a 300mm blade.
