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. I use my speed square during most cuts f...

I have had this drill for about 2 1/2 years and i want to now give my thoughts on this drill and how it has performed. first of all i will have to be truly honest about this and wont sugar coat this one bit. the drill out of the gate was a big disappointment, it had hardly any power, but it did have enough to do the small screws i was using at the time, but as time went on i became less and less happy with its performance and decided to take it in for repair, there were several issues, one,...

The Milwaukee C12D

The Milwaukee C12D

01-28-2011 11:24 PM by steliart | 16 comments »

This is probably the best drill/driver I ever had; it scores 100% in my ratings.It’s a heavy duty cordless drill/driver and it can work all day with 1 ½ batteries I was so surprised with its power lightness in handling it and it outlasted both Bosch and Makita by far. Bought it a year ago brand new in sealed case from a very reputable tool store and it was not cheap. Unless you own one you cannot grasp the value of this tool. Here are the technical specs for this masterpiece ...

Milwaukee 5" 8 hole cat#6021-21

Milwaukee 5" 8 hole cat#6021-21

01-11-2011 02:01 AM by Dave | 15 comments »

I had burnt up my last sander and was in a pinch to get another. So I had found this sander at a box store for $80.00.The weight and balance are very good. Also the grip is rubber and a little smaller than most of the others that I picked up. I will say this, one good thing about big box store is that you can test ride a product. I do have a bad wrist and on my last project I have been doing a lot of hand planing, sawing and card scrapping. so my wrist is a little sore. This sander does have ...

Not well made

Not well made

I’m a DIY guy who’s getting into my 60’s and have learned that it pays to buy good tools. In other words, you get what you pay for. That’s why I felt good when I bought this Milwaukee hammer drill. Milwaukee makes good stuff, right? Not. I hadn’t used the drill more than a dozen times when the variable speed feature quit. Now, you don’t want to be using a high torque 1/2” drill without variable speed – unless you don’t care if your arm ...

Milwaukee 12-in Dual-Bevel Compound Miter Saw

Milwaukee 12-in Dual-Bevel Compound Miter Saw

07-06-2010 04:49 AM by POGO | 6 comments »

After 10 years of reliable service, I decided to update my Miter Saw station (i.e. bench with a single bevel DeWalt miter saw sitting on top). My decision was based my son now having a workshop where I could “will” him tools which could stimulate his interest in woodworking. This would give me a good excuse to upgrade to a miter saw which has been designed to capture the saw dust from the cut. I do not have the funds for a Kapex, which has been touted as the gold standard for miter saws,...

Good Sander, but not Great

Good Sander, but not Great

06-05-2010 09:45 PM by Jim Crockett (USN Retired) | 9 comments »

I received this Milwaukee 1/4-sheet sander this week as a prize for completing surveys online – it was the only woodworking type tool offered. This replaces a B&D 1/4-sheet Palm Sander without oscillation. First impression is that it is packed well in a bright red plastic case with latches. Kit contains the sander, dust bag, three sheets of sandpaper (120, 180, 220), manual, and a paper punch. I had read reviews of this sander on Amazon and many users had complained that it is...

Great saw for the price

Great saw for the price

01-08-2010 10:31 PM by jerome | 11 comments »

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. Does have a interesting adjustable handle that you can position high or low de...
