Evolution RAGE3 FP2552 255mm Compound Mitre Saw 230V
Great saw easy to operate
this is a brilliant saw for the price. Works like a dream, I set it up on a saw stand and have used it to cut shelving, it was great. My only ify bit was the blade was not as easy fitted as it sounded, I had to remove some of the guard to get the blade in to place. I am very pleased with everything else about the saw. Highly recommended

Value for money
Bought this saw to replace my dewalt which was stolen from my van.
Whilst it's not a dewalt the build quality seems ok. The positive stops on mitre angles seem spot on as long as you lock the handle.
Set up was straight forward although worth checking blade angle against the fence which is easily adjusted with Allen screws. Only thing to watch out for is if lifting by base be aware mine had some sharp edges which I filed down. I also bought the stand at Â£60 which is excellent value. Overall a good saw for the money especially now that it's down to Â£150 !,

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.
