Hi All

I was wondering if it is possible to use Junior Hacksaw blades as vains for a 1 inch diaganol spder. The mirror set I have is from the Meade 114mm reflector. I know people have used normal hacksaw blades before, but as far as I know, no one has used junior hacksaw blades.

Do you think they will be strong enough without causing vibration when the scope is moved around?
