not as good as the old ones

Stephen Zielke, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: I have used Milwaukee Bandsaws for many years at work, we have had several, so I am familiar with proper use of the tool. I can't believe how frequently this new model loses its blade (I'm using an Irwin that supposedly is the correct size). One of my coworkers who purchased the same model is complaining as well, but rather that there is not enough slack when the tension release handle is opened, to easily install a new blade - essentially the opposite problem.

Bladeless saw?

dajornyl, Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: My mod. 6232-6N Milwaukee Portable Band Saw came to me without a blade. I checked my vendors website. It shows a saw with a blade in place. The paper packaging on the new saw shows a blade in place. The wording on the packaging says"Contains: 6232-6N Band Saw, Carrying Case". No mention with or without a blade. My vendor said to call Milwaukee because the saws come to them that way ever since they started making them in China. I called Milwaukee Customer Service.

Great saw but does not come with a blade

D. Orders "Otterwan", Amazon
8 June 2010
  • Summary: This is a great saw, but even though the description clearly states "Blade included: Yes" it does not actually come with a blade. Once I pointed this out to Amazon they quickly credited me for a 3-pack of blades I purchased at the same time as the saw, but if you want to use it the same day as it arrives, order some blades with it.
