Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HomeBlacksmith Unique saw that will be great when it is refined
Overall, I am happy I bought this spendy saw. This saw cuts most metals well. Be careful to not use the "Steel" blade or "Regular" blade on hardened tool steel. Unlike a grinding chop saw that will just cut it, you will ruin the Evolution blade. The laser guide is a little difficult to turn on because of its size and the protective covering. Remember to true-up the fence with the blade so that it is at 90 degrees with each other. The one I got was about 3/16" out of true. Also, remember that the laser guide is in the center of the blade so you have to account for the kerf of the blade to see where you are actually cutting. Wear protection on your face and left arm because the saw throws small, sharp shards of metal everywhere. The fence clamp is useful because pieces tend to walk when you cut at a 45 or tilted at 45 degrees.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by happycustomer Pretty cool saw
Very happy with purchase, was able to complete my project about 75% faster with this saw as compared to using my old cut-off saw. A little unhappy with some of the materials used for some of the parts (Plastic), when cutting metal you should have an air-hose handy to blow off the metal cuttings or they will melt the plastic and stick to it, i even notice that the angle guide was being distorted by the metal cuttings sticking to the plastic coating and melting it. All-in-all happy with the performance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SHF2015 Most Awesome saw I've ever owned!
I've used this metal cutting saw on steel and aluminum so far and it is unreal how easy it cuts. The finish on the metal after cutting is near perfect. So much better than using an abrasive chop saw. The coolest thing is how the cut metal is not hot at all after the cut. You can pick it up and handle it directly after cutting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Evolution Best Cutting Saw I've Ever Worked On!!!
This is definitely the future of Saw's. Some or most people might underestimate it because of the brand name, "Evolution Power Tools", but don't let that scare you away! First off, let me tell you how I came across this machine. Well, I was looking for a saw that cuts wood, aluminum and steel. From doing research, the only saw that seemed to work was this one. After seeing reviews, which there aren't many out there, I was able to convince myself to spend the cash and go for it. I figured, worst case scenario is that I go back to the store and return the item and get my money back. Well, when I put this machine to the test, it cut 2" x 4" wood blocking with no effort at all. Not only that, the red laser is EXACT and cuts precisely on your line which I found amazing. I'm pretty sure that other machines out there do the same thing, but the laser really helped because it gave me a guide as to where the blade was going to be cutting. After cutting a few 2" x 4" blocking, I went and cut a piece of 1-3/4" x 4" aluminum tube. I cannot even explain how accurate the cut was. It was right on the mark! I honestly could not believe it! To tell you the truth, I could go on for days on how much of a great machine this is. Not only that, I can tell you that it was definitely worth every penny. Hope this convinces more people to purchasing this product and getting the Evolution product lines out there on the market at your local Home Depot stores. I promise that you won't be dissapointed.

I use one of these saws in the U.K. they are the best for cutting wood if it is dirty or with nails in I looked to buy one in Arizona and could not find one in the U.S.A. until now. In the U.K. I cut about 5 to 8 ton of firewood with mine each winter I use some old wood like pallets and it's just right for these because of the nails. Worth every $$$$$$$$$ and £££££££££. Thank you.
