I asked you to show me your tools, so I figured I’d better show you mine first. This old Milwaukee portable band saw is a total lifesaver when you need to cut steel outside of the shop — or when you need to make a cut that’ll never fit into your standard saw. My Dad picked this up used at a flea market about fifteen years ago, and I inherited it a few years back.
I’m always surprised at how few people actually own one of these. I understand that there’s a stand available to turn it into a sort of mini-standard-band-saw, but Milwaukee wants about as much for the stand as they do for the saw itself. Maybe I’ll get around to building my own at some point.
Anyway, now that I’ve shown you mine, you can show me yours via our new Flickr photo pool. (You can see more pics of the portable band saw there, too.)
