My Dad and brother, working together.
My dad used to tinker with motorbikes. He had a few around, and sometimes used to canibalise one as spares for another.

One day he was having a cleanup, and wanted to take the old frame from one to the dump. So he got a hacksaw, sawed it in half and stuck it in the boot of the car.

When he got home, he found my brother, who was 5 at the time, had thought this a rather jolly wheeze, and had sawed his own perfectly serviceable bicycle in half.

Ahhhhhhahahahahahahahaha! Did he punt your little brother across the room in anger?
My mum (and probably every mum, thinking on it) tells of how when taking me shopping when I was a ween, she'd end up with double the amount as I immitated her putting stuff into the trolley.

What about the stuff she put in her coat?

She don't wear a coat 'cos she likes to show off her tats.

Leaving a hacksaw within easy reach of an unsupervised 5 year old?
Quality parenting.

As a nipper, I once took a pair of pliers to my dad's spine. Think he came quite close to belting me one, for that.

This was in the 1970's
in fact early 1970s. There was no such thing as parenting.

We had bedrooms with a 30' drop onto concrete, with no locks on the windows. A large garden pond to play around, when we weren't wandering aimlessly off into the road, or smashing up the derelict houses dotted around the town - we lived in Biggin Hill, there were a fair few WWII bomb craters around for us to play in too. Not to mention the famous airfield, which was securely bound by a tatty hedge. Cycle up the runway anyone?

A hacksaw was the least of it.

We broke into an international airport one new years eve about 14 years ago
and played a game of football on the runway (for about ten minutes before we figured we were tempting fate and should get going whilst the going was good!).
