20 Most Recent Milwaukee tools 6242-6 Compact PortaBand Saw Kit Questions & Answers

I have no experience of portable bandsaws but do have some experience of workshop bandsaws.

One wheel is generally movable in order to "steer" the blade and careful adjustment is needed with the blade guides retracted until the blade runs full on the wheels. The blade guides are then brought back to prevent the pressure against the work from pushing the blade off the wheels.

Miter saw, similar to circular saw, use a flat circular blade to cut wood, MDF and other materials including plastic and aluminum (with proper blades). But it also has special features to do accurate crosscuts. The tool can also cut bevel and make "miters" - cuts at any angle other than 90° ( miter vs circular saw)

Fixya has a problem with 'mystery items' William. All questions must have full;

make model (what it is)


make model replacement parts

I can't imagine a plastic knob holding a saw blade unless it is a jigsaw!

It is a matter of terminology. A chop saw is geared more towards cutting bulk things and is heavy duty. A miter saw is precision wood working equipment for cutting angles. It would help to know what make and model you are wondering about

dont know about a manual, usually a button to push, maybe underneath, or a hole to put a dowel through?

Saws | Answered on Dec 04, 2020

There is a blade release that you have to push up while inserting blade. If this isn't the problem, there are many types of blades for different jigsaws. You need the one for your brand. Take an old blade with you when you purchase. Good luck

tempered glass of course is a no brainer

If you can't obtain brushes as a spare part for your grinder, there are many companies around the world that will be pleased to make a set for you, usually for little more than manufacturer's own. They will probably need one of the old brushes as a pattern.

We have at least half a dozen such companies in the UK and I expect there are some where you are.
