The MILWAUKEE M12 Cordless High Performance Jig Saw is the most compact, lightest weight professional cordless jig saw on the market with its innovative Hybrid Grip design. The Hybrid Grip delivers greater control by bringing the grip closer to the material with a variable speed trigger. The jig saw handle design combines the best features from both top handle and barrel grip jigsaws to provide superior cut control and a low center of gravity grip for precision during curved cutting applications. A powerful 3/4 in. stroke length and 0-2,800 SPM variable speed trigger deliver fast and accurate cuts in multiple materials. The Jig Saw features a QUIK-LOK T-Shank blade clamp and tool free 450 bevel capability for quick and easy tool adjustments. The Milwaukee Cordless Jig Saw is powered by an M12 REDLITHIUM Battery (not included) and has an LED light that highlights the cutting surface for improved visibility. The M12 Jig Saw is designed to minimize vibration by using a fully counterbalanced mechanism and positioning the limited tool weight directly over the cutting area. The jig saw is ideal for making quick cuts in wood, metal, wall tile or plastics without the hassle of pulling out a cord.

Is this enough to cut hardwood/metal or I'd need M18 fuel Jig Saw?

Asked by Keen December 12, 2020
1
Answer

It will cut hardwood and metal just fine. Not sure about battery life. There are actually different sized batteries available. Have to look at amperage.

How does this compare to M18 Jig Saw 2737-20?

Asked by Keen December 12, 2020
1
Answer

This saw uses a M12 volt battery the 2737-20 uses the m18 volt system. I would say that the 18 volt may be better for heavy professional use, 12 volt is for lighter use or home. I have the 12 volt system for all my home use hand tools and I really like the size, weight and quality. Look at both and purchase whichever system you like knowing that it is easier to have one type of battery that can be interchanged between all your hand tools. There are many manufacturers that have these products.

Can you attach a coping foot on this jigsaw?

To start off, let me say that the only reason I said I wouldn't recommend this jig saw is that it's just a bit underpowered and slow for cutting woods thicker than 3/4" thick. Spend the extra few dollars and buy the m18 jigsaw. It's more powerful and an overall better saw. Having said that, if you still decide to get this jig saw, it's a built extremely well, just like all other Milwaukee tools. It runs on the M12 battery so if you already have M12 tools, this will fit right in. The saw has great ergonomics and is nice and light. For light use, this is the jig saw to get. The jig saw comes with a free blade and I actually found it to be a fantastic blade. It's actually my go-to blade now.

Best Jigsaw I've Ever Owned!
As a general contractor with severely arthritic hands, I was looking for something that would fit well in my hand, not be too heavy and still get the job done-this is it! I was a little surprised at the amount of power with the M12 battery; the variable speed trigger is nice and the work light is surprisingly bright and very useful. Adjustments to the shoe are easy with the single flip lever and blade changes are simple. I'm sure this will handle anything I can throw at it. Awesome tool!

The The Milwaukee jigsaw seems like a nice design and a was planning to buy more tools like a belt sander for the M12 battery. I am very disappointed that I cannot squeeze hard enough to release the battery. A bad design and Home Depot should have the tool in stock to try before I bought.

It’s a decent lightweight saw. The ease of use and weight make it a quick go to tool. Definitely need something more heavy duty for cutting anything more than about an inch thick.
