"Was dissapointed because you assume that when a manufacturer supplies 110v tools that they are a comparible spec to the trade quality items. There is a design fault to this saw,. The saw blade bevels to 45 deg, but when returning the blade to 0deg, it goes past zero another degree. I have never known a trade saw to naturally cut out of square. If i had bought this at full price £99.99 i would have been gutted. But at £50 ok."
"I have always used Makita or Bosch tools but thought the Evolution looked a good buy, particularly in light of how good the sliding mitre saw I already have is. What a mistake. 1 - The depth setting is by a plastic screw through the handle - there is no way this will last & it adjusts itself as you raise or lower the sole plate. 2 - The depth mark is hidden by the handle itself so it's guesswork. 3 - The handle is so far offset from the blade that any drag makes the saw turn in your hand. 4 - The rip fence measurements are complete fiction - no idea what they relate to but it's not even close to the actual cut 5 - the dust extraction is so shallow that you can't get a vacuum nozzle in there
This saw is a waste of money - i will be buying another Makita ASAP."
