Highlights:

  • Large 3-1/4" cutting capacity to handle a wide variety of cutting applications
  • 45% lighter and more compact than the deep cut version, easily goes where other portable band saws can't
  • Bright LED light illuminates cutting area in dark conditions
  • Tool-free adjustable shoe for flush cutting against walls and ceilings
  • Variable speed allows you to match the speed of the blade to your material
  • Drop resistant pulley guard and impact resistant polymer construction make this saw job site tough

If you're a mechanical, plumbing or electrical professional, you know the difference the size and weight of the tool can make during repeated use. Add to that the idea of having to hold a tool over your head to do the job and you'll understand why smaller is better. The 6242-6 Compact Band Saw from Milwaukee was designed with you, and your sore muscles, in mind. Weighing in at a feathery 9.5lbs and measuring only 16" in length, this band saw is the right choice for repeated and overhead use. And don't think the small size means small performance; this saw can cleanly cut 3" copper, 3" angle iron and 2-1/2" conduit in a single pass. And the tool-free adjustable material shoe means you can make quick shoe adjustments to allow you to make flush cuts against walls and ceilings. And once you round it out with a bright LED light to illuminate your cutting area, we're sure you'll agree that you've got yourself the "full package" portable band saw.

Milwaukee Compact bandsaw
By exelectrician from Seattle on April 9, 2012
I sold my old Milwaukee bandsaw and bought this - Wow! where in the past I would avoid using the heavy old saw Now I have a saw I can use with one hand.
At almost half the weight and with a minimal amount of throat size reduction, I have a saw I can go to for a whole lot more cuts. I am very happy I swapped saws, the best recent power tool purchase I have made.

Pros:
Light weight,
Rugged and reliable,
Easy to change blades, from fine pitch to coarse pitch.
Well balanced.
Cons:
It is all good, no dislikes whatsoever.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Nice little saw
