Evolution RAGE3B2102 210mm Compound Mitre Saw 230V
nice cheap saw
Purchased this on offer, very good saw for the regular DIY'er but I think it would struggle if used on a daily basis by trade

perfect light diy
needed a mitre saw to cut door frames and small domestic skirting cutting was ideal for small diy works

good basic saw
My old saw packed and I needed one for a project
set up quickly and has worked well
only adjustment needed from out of the box was the cam lock for the guide 10 second job and working fine

Good DIY chop saw
I bought this to replace my previous chop-saw when the motor burnt out. I am about to build a structural aluminium frame and wanted something to cut metal and came across a lot of reviews recommending Evolution. I haven't tried cutting metal yet, but it goes through soft and semi-hard wood with no trouble, and the odd nail in old timber out of the barn doesn't slow it down.
Can't really comment on reliability - only used it for a few hours so far.
I checked the blade alignment before use - vertical was fine, but the zero degrees was off. Easy enough to sort except that neither of the supplied allen keys was the right size - not a problem, but a bit annoying.
It feels light and wobbly and really needs fixing down on a bench, but if you need to move it around the low weight is great. My old saw felt really solid to use, but was a heavy beast to move around.
Overall, a good piece of DIY kit.
