"Ready to use practically right out of the box. Cuts right through 1/4" angle iron like it was butter. Much more exact than trying to use a recip saw. Great product, great buy!"

By JimShort
from Olive Hill, KY
"I had looked at other saws but settled on this one and am really glad I did. I've used it several times and it has the normal milwaukee quality. Northern has the normal northern fair pricing and free shipping for this item. I wish I had bought it a long time ago."

Milwaukee Compact Band Saw,

By JasW
from Louisiana
"This saw is easier to use do to less weight and compact size. Just the right size for most conduit and pipe. Also great for strut, all thread and bar stock.
Perfect for electrical and communication installers. Size makes it easy to store or transport. DOWNSIDE: blades may be hard to find local.
