Questions & Answers

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.

Does Milwaukee have plans of making an m12 fuel version of their jigsaw? I use many of their other m12 fuel tools, great

Yes, the dust builds up behind the blade.

Does this M12 jigsaw have a built-in blower to blow away the sawdust while cutting?

What is the maximum cut depth of this tool?

It varies, depending on what kind of jigsaw blade is being used at the time.

Does this jig saw have a blower?

Asked by Al October 16, 2019
3
Answers

No. That is a HUGE problem. Without a blower, the splinter shoe fills up with dust causing the dust to accumulate in front of the shoe so you cannot see the line you are trying to cut. You can physically blow on the cut line, but the shoe fills so quickly that you need to constantly blow in order to see the cutline. That to me is ridiculous and irritating. One of the reasons I bought this jigsaw was the splinter shoe because I make many curved cuts on plywood. The tool feels good, has plenty of power, and cuts fine, but actual use is frustrating because of being unable to follow a cut line. This is the only Milwaukee tool in my arsenal that I am disappointed with. I cannot recommend it and regret my purchase.

how you regulate the speed? and stroke?

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.

Customer service is fair. I had questions about other item's I wanted to purchase. So, I called Home Depot to speak with someone. Over 15 minutes period, I was transferred 3 times via phone, and then placed on hold. The phone would pick up, and then after several times of the phone being picked up and being placed on hold, someone did answer. They stated they would transfer me to the manager, but again I was placed on hold. The is no live customer service! As for my purchase, I only purchased one item, but I would have purchased more but could never speak with anyone to answer my questions.

Can’t see the cut line and bevel adjustment comes loose
I got this jigsaw as part of a combination kit. In total, I have eight of the M12 tools. All of them are well-built and seem to be able to last a long time. However, I have two major issues with this jigsaw. The bevel adjustment does tend to work loose. After cutting for more than a few seconds, especially in wood that is thicker than 1/2”, the base will shift and your cut will be thrown off. Even more frustrating is that, as other reviewers have stated, sawdust is thrown right into your cuts, and within just a matter of a couple of seconds, you cannot see where you were cutting at all. It makes even cutting a couple of small notches for window trim very difficult.
