    I have an Evolution metal saw. It's great, noisey as ****, but word of word of warning, buy the right blades, there's blades for ally, mild and stainless. You'll kill them quickly if used on the wrong material and theyre pricey

    I had a Rage saw, was supposed to be multipurpose and was rubbish at everything. I gave it away to a mate to cut firewood and he thought it was useless too and chucked it out. I cut steel with a proper Makita cut off saw.

    Thanks for replies,



    I've already got couple of Dewalt drills plus their impact driver. Always been happy with qualty and durabilty, so leaning towards them at moment.

    shovelheadrob: I have noticed a few secondhand dewalt saws, now I've started looking properly. Obviously little bit of a gamble buying used, but do seem to some good buys around.



    thanks.

    Chop/mitre saw recommendations

    Just about to buy a chop/mitre saw for carpentry project. So thought I might as well get one suitable for use in garage afterwards ( cutting box section steel etc).

    Does anyone have any recommendations? Id rather get something decent now, rather than buy cheap, buy twice.


    Thanks
