Milwaukee Cordless Mini Band Saw
Milwaukee continues its leadership role in trade-focused tool design with this exciting compact 18-volt cordless portable band saw, the M18 2629-22. The 3-1/4-by-3-1/4-inch throat is sized to handle 85 percent of the cuts most commonly made with much larger and heavier models. The big idea behind this little saw is the size and weight benefits you gain from using a short, one-handed saw that, at 10.25 pounds, weighs 40 percent less than its full-sized counterpart and is small enough to get into tight spaces. Features include a sliding shoe that retracts to allow flush-cutting against a wall, an impact-resistant one-piece shroud assembly that's easy to replace, and a novel blade "pusher" that you press to release a hot blade from the wheels without endangering your fingers. The saw is also available in a variable-speed corded model. Milwaukee M18 Cordless Portable Band Saw: $399. 800-729-3878. www.milwaukeetool.com.
