No Slowing Down

TDog, LumberJocks

  • Excerpt: I researched several skill saws before buying this one. I wanted a saw that was reliable and square…period. This is what I decided on. It has been a good saw. I mostly cut old barn wood for rustic table work. So I don’t know what I’ll be cutting many times, age, condition, dry, wet, etc. I do clean up the nails well and remove first. This Milwauee Saw really does cut all the way through the cut smoothly with no bogging down at all.

Great saw for the price

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a new saw to replace my old Skil model and found this nice Milwaukee for $99.00. I have had it about a week and am pretty impressed. I was actually toying with the Ridgid brand, but opted on this one instead. This is a saw with no laser, or electric brake, but I personally didn’t miss them. Nice and powerful motor at 15amps so I haven’t experienced any binding under extreme use yet.

A cutting edge saw

encanto, Amazon

  • Summary: I've completed a bunch of projects using my new Milwaukee 6390-21 saw. I've made shelving and cabinets using pine, cedar and oak. I've cut 2 by's for deck construction and ripped plywood for roof repair. This saw is terrific. It is powerful, solid without being excessively heavy, and very well balanced for a sidewinder. Calibration marks are clear and accurate for depth of cut and baseplate angle. Large adjustment lever and knob make these adjustments easy.

Super clean, accurate, and easy - nay - a pleasure to handle.

  • Summary: I am a guy who bought an old 1900 house and didn't know anything whatsoever about carpentry a couple of years ago, so my 'review' should be taken with that in mind. But after buying this place, we decided that new cabinets were essential and after going to Home Depot and seeing the overpriced junk they have there, I decided that even at my worst I could do better than that.

Milwaukee 6390-21 Tilt-Lok Circular Saw

22 July 2009
  • Summary: This saw has plenty of power. The quick release height and bevel adjustments are great. The bevel scale is accurate, so once you calibrate it you can set bevels with confidence (in so far as the design of the shoe allows anyway). The tilt lock is helpful when sawing a vertical surface. The shoe on mine wasn't parallel to the blade and there's no adjustment.

Great saw, except for the shoe.

Great saw but had higher hopes

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: My father builds houses and has had his current Milwaukee saw for 15 years. I have always wanted one and was slightly dissapointed when this one arrived. Not built as heavy duty as they used to be and I was shocked to see the MADE IN CHINA wording on the saw's spec sticker. I was hoping I was paying extra versus most saws for USA made but unfortunately I was not.

  • Summary: While not a professional carpenter like many who've already reviewed this excellent pice of equipment I'd like to add my $.02 worth to these reviews. A few months ago I was doing a complete remodel of the kitchen in our rental condo and for the first few weeks my old Skil saw (at least 10 years old and possibly damaged when I used it, with the proper blade, as a concrete saw a couple of years back) was doing just fine.
