Ideal for a compact band saw
I am a contractor and i have used other band saws in the past and this one definitely gets into places the full size ones do not. I used this saw to remove old galvanized drain lines and to cut hangars. The low speed setting though is still a bit fast for cutting steel, and wears the blade a little quick. Also because it is compact the blade is shorter and wears faster then the full sized ones. For what it is though its almost perfect.

Great value
I built a Stout inspired vertical support with an eight inch table from aluminum angle and plate. I cut small metal shapes when table mounted and long stock when dismounted. Works well in any configuration.

Good saw, looks new
I use it for small metal working projects to fabricate items I need. I popped the blade off when I was withdrawing it from a cut and caught the edge of the blade. Seemed a little too easy to pop it off. That won't be a problem as long as downward pressure - the weight of the tool - is kept on the cutting surface.

Works well, had signs of wear
I have bought quite a few reconditioned tools off CPO. Mainly Bosch's 12v cordless items which have had no signs of use. This is my first Milwaukee item. The Bosch items set my expectations high, but the saw I received had definite signs of prior use. It looked as if it had been set down many times on the metal gearbox with scratches and signs of wear.

Saying that, the saw appears to work as advertised and quickly cut through some 1.5 inch ssquare tubing.

Material Guide was Missing
It is a fine tool but this one did not have its "material guide" included. The guide lines-up the material and gives it a surface to cut against. Without the guide, small diameter material such as rebar and EMT run right into the guide bearings - a serious safety and tool wear issue. I returned the saw unused and am waiting for a replacement. If the new saw has the material guide, I will be a happy camper, if not, I will return and cancel.

Fantastic little saw.
I do a lot of fabrication in a home shop. This is probably the best investment I have made in a tool in several years. It is light powerful and does what I need it to without failing to perform.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
