A junior hacksaw is a smaller version of the standard hacksaw and is ideal for cutting small delicate pieces of work where the weight alone of the standard hacksaw may cause damage to the workpiece. Also, being smaller it is easier to use in confined spaces.
A mini hacksaw that accepts the same blades as a regular hacksaw but holds them in a small handle without tension. It is used for close-quarter metal cutting.
A panel hacksaw eliminates the frame, so that the saw can cut into panels of sheet metal without the length of cut being restricted by the frame.
Also see jig saw.
