Evolution Stealth 210mm Compound Mitre Saw 240V
Initial Problems but now okay.
I bought my first one of these but, due to some malformation of the cutting head slide assembly, the little green buttons wouldn't lock into place on the rails. After trying all sorts of things, took it back to Screwfix and got a replacement unit.
The new one went together like a dream, but when I did my first cut, I discovered that the blade would not quite go forward enough to completely cut through the work-piece. Oh no! Quoth I (or words to that effect). After studying the user guide, I discovered that - for some bizarre reason, the guide against which the work piece rests, is shipped in its absolutely forward most position. Why would they do that? I adjusted that to its mid-point and performed the set square alignment detailed in the user guide and now all is well - working great now.
Some things the product description lacks. This is a slow start saw (I like that much better when using the saw mobile rather than fixed down). You can turn the laser guide on and off. It comes with work-piece clamps which you can use if you want to.

Why spend more?
Having read reviews I bought this to renovate a house-3 story Edwardian. It was superb and blade is still good. Cuts clean and angles are accurate. Solid build. Being a sliding saw you can cut reasonably wide. Excellent piece of equipment and would but another again.
