More Snap-on Space Tools

This is from STS-114:




"S114-E-6034 (2 August 2005) --- This image taken aboard the Shuttle Discovery shows the modifications the crew has made to a hacksaw they will carry with them during a spacewalk planned for Wednesday. The hacksaw could be used if needed to cut off a thermal protection system gap filler that is protruding from the underside of Discovery."

Here's the supersize pic:

John, that could be a ripoff of a lenox hacksaw. I wonder who had it first. Pretty interesting modifications to it though.

That saw is funny. If I had seen it on Earth with the velcro and tether on it, I would immediately think it was ghetto. But see it on the Shuttle and it becomes bad ass.
