A Great Replacement For My Old Dewalt

Tyler Barhorst, Amazon
11 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this saw to replace a 12 year-old Dewalt circular saw that still functioned but had significant signs of use. At first I did not like this saw because the handle and base are quite different than the Dewalt saws. However, after a few uses, I have to say that this is a better saw. It glides nicely for straight cuts. The levers to adjust the cut depth and bevel are large and easy to use. It is also surprisingly quiet and smooth in operation.

No Slowing Down

  • 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

jerome, LumberJocks

  • 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.

Just what you hope for - A solid saw!

John W. Christiansen, Amazon

  • Summary: I have no problems or concerns with this saw. I purchased it after having done general construction work for four summers during college. I needed a saw with enough power to rip a sheet of plywood without coughing. Norm Abrams (of the TV show "This Old House") recommends this saw as one that has power comparable to a worm-drive saw, without the added weight and unwieldiness.

A cutting edge saw

encanto, Amazon
10 December 2011
  • 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.

Best Circular Saw Ever Owned

Doinwell, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: Easy to hold and cut a straight line. Good visibility of cutting line and it does not blow saw dust back into your face. Powerful. It does come with a cheap blade that needs to be replaced.

Like a hot knife through butter

J. Cole, Amazon
3 February 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this because i was taking on a few jobs around the house and needed a saw that was up to the task. I've replaced a 12 ft. section of wood fencing, built a 5 ft. gate, and ripped through about 30 pallets, and quite a few 4x4's, 2x4's, 2x6's, and tree limbs. The last few items were firewood for the fire pit i have in my back yard. The saw feels solid and has plenty of power for all that i've done with it.

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

Zachary A. Barnhart, Amazon
26 June 2010
  • 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

CharlesEnfield, Rate it all!
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.
