Questions & Answers


If equipped with the proper blade could this saw be used for finish work or will the cut quality be poor due to low rpms?

Asked by Buckwild October 19, 2018

I use mine with the supplied cutting blade. I use it to shorten rifle and shotgun stocks for recoil pad installations. I have never had an issue with chipping or splintering! The saw cuts metal and wood very easily. I have not tried the saw on finish cabinet work, but I believe it would be more than adequate!

Can you run this off a standard 15 amp outlet?

Asked by 10j10 July 7, 2018

Yes, you can run the saw using a standard 15 amp outlet. The saw is a 15 amp saw. Thank you and have a great day!

Asked by javier May 30, 2018

The only thing that locks the slide is the knob on the right rail that can be screwed down to lock the slide. Make sure it is loosened and also make sure that the electric cord allows the proper travel length.

what blade should I use for cutting quarter inch thick steel tubing 2x2

Asked by chuck May 11, 2018

It really depends on how many cuts you will be making. If you only have a couple of cuts to make ,you can use the blade that comes with it. ( multi-purpose ) . If you have a lot of cuts to make they sell a dedicated blade for cutting steel. I've used the MP blade to cut a few dozen horseshoes and haven't had a problem yet.

How thick of mild plate steel will this cut or square tubing (1/4 )(1/2 thick)?

Asked by Trevor April 8, 2018

It cuts 11ga (1/8/“) well. Thicker metal dullz the blade. Cuts wood great!

Asked by DNO36 March 24, 2018

I think you will be fine , but it's always good to have a spare blade especially if you are away from your shop. I think you will be very happy and surprised with how well this saw works. The only thing that is a little weird is when you mark your cut and line it up with the laser as you bring it down to make your cut the laser light moves to the right the closer you get to the material the further it will move. I used the template they give you to line up the laser but it still did it. Your cuts will be straight but I would not rely on the laser use a square and pencil to mark your work. I hope this helped best of luck .

Will this cut solid rod 2”?

Asked by Bryan February 27, 2018

I would not use a chop-type saw for this size solid rod. Anything over 1/2" would be best cut with a band saw.

Can you cut tiles with this saw, could you do it with a special blade?

Asked by Sbea January 19, 2018

Yes, but make sure you cut outside as it will generate quite a bit of dust..

Can you put an abrasive wheel on it for cutting steal?

Asked by Tanner86 January 14, 2018

Hi Tanner, I would not use and abrasive blade in this saw. It turns a lower RPM for use with toothed saws and blades that are designed for cutting metals at this lower RPM range. A ferrous/steel cutting blade that is designed for this type of saw would be the call. Hope this helps.

Does it have a laser on it?

Asked by Don November 22, 2017

The Rage3 does have a laser.

Nice Saw, But Only "Ready To Use" With Their Blade ... I've had this saw for a couple months now...
Nice Saw, But Only "Ready To Use" With Their Blade ... I've had this saw for a couple months now but have only really used it a few times. A big reason for that is the arbor adaptor that comes with it, that allows you to use 5/8" blades as well as their 1" blades, while perfect on the 1" side, was "off" on the 5/8" side which gave the 5/8" blades a wobble of about 1/8". I even ordered a second M*kita blade after thinking a brand new one was warped ... but it was the saw's adapter. I called Evolution and they were very nice about taking care of the issue. They rushed me a replacement but, to my great disappointment, the replacement was even worse! This one was off by more like 1/4", but again, it was perfect on the 1" side... (go figure). My solution was to grind the 1" ring off the second one they had sent, (which I did with a lathe and angle grinder.) That did the trick and now that adapter is perfect for the 5/8" blades. Aside from that whole issue which was pretty disappointing from a brand new saw, it does what's advertised, at least it went through a steel fence post with easy and left a super clean cut. The delayed switch and slow start take some getting used to. I must have pulled the trigger 5 times, thinking I had a dead saw, before I kept it on long enough for it to come on at all. After that there's letting the blade get up to speed, but in all it's a 2 or 3 second delay. If you were on a job site and in a "time is money!" frame of mind, this would get old, but if you're taking your time making deliberate, smooth cuts, it's a very nice saw. It's a slower motor than a lot of other miter saws, but again, if you're not being brutal with it, it does the job. I prefer the slower start because it makes the whole thing quieter, as opposed to the shocking, "screaming in your face" start of a lot of saws. (It starts more like a radial arm saw.) Oh, I also had to take the feet off, and put larger feet in the gap (could've used blocks) to get it to mount to a miter saw stand because the factory feet make the arms that attach to the saw bow inward, but if you take them off and leave nothing, you can't get the saw angle to 45 degrees. I had saved this saw in a wish list for probably 6 months and was still considering it at it's regular price, but to get it for the early December sale price of 25% off, I'm very satisfied with the purchase ... once I resolved the arbor adaptor situation.

Light weight machine Great for home projects This machine needs to be mounted to a workstation for best cutting results. Lots of YouTube videos to help you put it together and set up your machine before you us it. Not ready to cut out of the box. The blade that comes with the unit cuts clean, just let the machine cut do not force it. The laser, I used it to get me closer to my mark. I would recommend the machine to a weekend warrior do it yourself-er. You can't get a better machine for the price and if you keep up with the maintenance you should get a long lift out of this unit. . thank you for reading this review....

Great saw for the money!
Saw was easy to assemble and required very little tuning. The slow start motor takes a little getting used to and if you mount it to a table you need to put some wood blocks under each foot or the angle adjustment lever will bump the table when moving the saw past 30 degrees. Other than that I am VERY happy with this purchase. I doubt you will find a better 10" sliding miter saw for the price of this one. I wish they made a 12" version. You CAN use a 5/8" arbor blade with this saw. Many of the reviews online say that it only accepts a 1" arbor blade, but that is not true anymore. The new Rage3 has a bushing on the arbor that can be turned around to fit a 5/8" arbor blade.

Awesome METAL cutting saw
This is a great saw for cutting metal. I have owned it for over a year now, and its still going strong. The blade that comes with it is just ok, gets the job done. Upgrade and buy the 52-tooth or 66-tooth blade and let it work! I have cut enough metal, thick (1/4"-1/2") and thin, with absolutely no problem, to build multiple trailers from scratch. The motor has a soft start feature, push button, wait a sec, then motor slowly spools up-takes maybe 2 seconds total which is not a big deal to me. Torque-y motor has enough power to to cut through anything. I've never worried from the start about "dust" collection. I don't know of any metal cutting saw that could contain all the debris. Ive never used the clamp down features. The saw really cuts through metal like butter, and I just firmly hold the piece being cut with my free hand, even on 45 degree cuts. Setting up for angled cuts are easy with the degree indicator on the base. Even has indents for the more common angled cuts. The sliding head feature is great. Ive cut a 6" wide flat bar 1/4" thick by pulling saw head out, plunge cut down, then push back to finish cut, like butter! Cuts are clean with no burrs! This is a METAL cutting saw, that also has the ability to cut wood.

Cuts ok. Blade wobbles a bit while cutting. Needed some adjustment out of the box to cut completely through material. Overall good value for the price. Much better and faster to cut steel than an abrasive blade saw.
