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
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.
ProsLight weight, Rugged and reliable, Easy to change blades, from fine pitch to coarse pitch. Well balanced.
ConsIt is all good, no dislikes whatsoever.
