Product Overview

Deep Cut Band Saws deliver 2X more durability, best-in-class power at 11 Amp, revolutionary cut visibility and the industry's largest cut capacity at 5 in. x 5 in. These Band Saws still deliver on the heritage of long-term reliability and performance that make Milwaukee Band Saws the standard in industrial metalworking, but now feature a new, exclusive Job Site Armor Technology and all metal direct drive system that provide game-changing durability. The Job Site Armor Technology is made of a proprietary composite material and has crush zone barriers that provide long-lasting rugged protection. The all metal direct drive gearing system delivers maximum tool life, while requiring less servicing than a chain drive. In addition, a gear protecting clutch extends gear and motor life by absorbing high impact forces caused by blade lock-ups. The new Band Saw's slimmer motor housing increases user line of site delivering superior cut accuracy and revolutionary cut visibility, while a new balanced body design allows tool to rest naturally and comfortably in users hands. At 14.5 lbs., this lighter weight design delivers more control over the tool and less fatigue at the conclusion of the work day. Other innovative features include a tool-free locking adjustable shoe for a button actuated tool-free design that allows user to quickly adjust from an extended shoe to no shoe in seconds, while the new debris protection system delivers longer pulley life by removing debris during use.

Can the trigger be locked in the on possition?

Hi there! The trigger cannot be locked on our 11 Amp Deep Cut Band Saw (6232-21).

What is the benefit of this over a jig saw or reciprocating saw?

Asked by KatyTexas June 21, 2020
3
Answers

This is more often used for cutting tubular steel and other metals than for wood. While a reciprocating saw can be used for that, this is a bit more precise and is often used on a stand.

is there a saw blade available for this saw I can use to cut very dense hard wood ?h

Can it cut through concrete filled metal pipe

Asked by Jt January 30, 2020
1
Answer

No, I doubt the bandsaw blade will survive concrete. It will cut metal and wood only and is really only intended for metal. You will need an abrasive wheel saw to cut through the steel and concrete. Typically, this would be done with a demolition saw. If only a few cuts are needed, just rent from the HD tool rental department.

comparing two models--6232-21 and 6238-21 What is the difference?

Asked by Regan October 29, 2019
3
Answers

Model # 6232-21 and 6238-21 are the same models except for one distinctive difference. #6232-21 operates on 120v AC power only. #6238-21 is capable of operating on EITHER 120v AC or 12v DC, some welders and generators can provide DC power out in the field. Basically, just commercial contractors would be interested in this feature. SAME COST ! By using DC power you would be guaranteed a CONSTANT RPM vs. AC power but, I can't imagine the average home owner could possibly notice any difference.

So far so good
I’ve had this saw for a month now, it is set up in an aftermarket table from Swag Offroad to make it a standup bandsaw. It’s been working great, it’s loud but cuts like I remember. One weird detail is the led light is mounted exactly in line with the blade, so if you’re trying to follow a line on some material the blade makes a shadow directly over your line. Otherwise the saw is great. Love that it comes in a hard case, the adjustable speed is nice, and the construction is heavy duty.

Very nice saw, perfect for cutting flat bar, angle, channel, pipe/tube. Cuts are very clean with minimal burrs and small kerf. If you're tired of using an angle grinder and death wheel to cut stock then look no further. Pair this with a Portaband table 4.0 from Swag Offroad and you have a mini vertical bandsaw. Would 100% recommend to anyone for their metal cutting needs.
