Evolution RAGE3 FP2552 255mm Compound Mitre Saw 230V
worth every penny
Bought this to cut skirting board, 7 inch that is, every cut was spot on. Left/right 45 degrees, tilted 45 degrees, 90 degrees.
The original build-up was easy except for the plastic thumb lever which needs attaching to the locking lever when moving the saw left/right of center. This did not fit to the lever section and both it and the lever required work to make them fit together correctly (the part incompatibility should have been found at quality control)
The settings on the machine needed no alterations as the 45/90 degrees and tilt were correct out of the box.
I still gave the machine 5 stars because it cut at all fixed degree settings accurately and easily. This machine is capable of being taken to a job as it's weight is easily manageable.
The other machine we use in the workshop is twice the weight and cost over Â£500.

A great deal
This saw is so much better than my last one, The accuracy is amassing. It does exactly what you wont it to do. and the laser light does work.
I would recommend it to anyone.
One thing though you will need conversion shims to fit 30mm hole saw blades, you can purchase these from Trend.

Fantastic saw very pleased!
I've had this saw for 2 years now and it has had a lot of use, being an electrician I use it for many things, it save god knows how much time and money while installing dado trunking, also great for cutting uni strut and rod.
Just used it to build my girls bunk beds and again it came into its own.
I would buy this saw again and anyone that uses it is always surprised by the quality and compare it to the move expensive saws often saying they will get one of these!
