Hackman Retires After 48 Years
Lee “Hackman” Breton recently retired after a 48-year career at tool manufacturer Lenox. He started there in 1962 on the manufacturing floor, where he was credited with manufacturing the first bi-metal reciprocating saw blade entirely by hand. In 1981, he cut a car in half with Hackmaster Hacksaw blades, which turned out to be the first of hundreds of car cuts - earning him the nickname Hackman. He has traveled the world as Hackman, cutting more than 500 cars and other items, including an oil tank truck, cargo plane, box car, house, armored car and even a bus at the 1999 Super Bowl XXXIIII.
