“it only took
I’m a ceiling fixer. At the moment I’m laying grid all day at the ‘Millennium Dome’. I’m fitting 20mm x 20mm Steel shadow gap trim, according to the manufacturer there was nothing but a hand Hack-saw and a Mitre Block that would cut it. I couldn’t believe that is the manufacturer’s recommended way to cut it, so I started looking around for an alternative, but couldn’t find anything. I gave up and ended up going to my local tool store to get my 13th plastic Mitre Block and there it was like a shining light - a RAGE3 Mitre Saw, I got all excited like a little boy at Christmas.
When I got into work, I was telling the lads and they said; “No way - it will burn the paint on the trim”. I thought it’s got to be better than using a Hacksaw and wow, wow, wow - it is! I’ve had it 5 months now and I am just about to order a new blade, happy days. And no it doesn’t burn the trim, it’s the cleanest cut ever! Everyone on-site is trying to get one now. Trust me, it only took me 4 days to make it pay - now I’m earning about £200 a week more than I was with just a Hack-saw!

Really shone Through WAS
compound Just over a month ago, I decided I wanted to build a Caterham Seven Kit car. I searched long and hard for what to build and in the end decided to either build the chassis or buy one ready made. The problem was buying a ready made chassis would have cost me 1k, but due to the current low price of metal, the metal would only cost me about £110. So for me, it was the obvious choice to build it myself. After reading on some well known internet forums... I came across the Evolution RAGE3 255mm Multipurpose Sliding Mitre Saw. After reading reviews and seeing the demo video on the Evolution website - I made the brilliant decision to buy one!
“ I WAS really surprised that I didn’t have to finish the cut in any way; my files haven’t even come out of the tool box yet!”
On first inspection it seemed like any other Compound Sliding Mitre Saw, apart from the RAGE blade is clearly very different. I started cutting wood first for my chassis’ build table, which was a breeze, but I hadn’t expected wood to be a problem. It then came to the point where I had to cut 25mm2 mild Steel box section. On my first cut I went slowly through the metal, as I wouldn’t have thought it would be able to cut any faster. However, after a few more cuts I realised that the Evolution RAGE3 did a great job of cutting Steel box section. It does it in-one clean, effortless and almost spark-free motion! I really thought that the RAGE3 was definitely a worthwhile investment. Forums on the Internet are what really initially convinced me to buy this, and I have to agree to what is a pretty unanimous opinion on the Internet, that the Evolution RAGE3 Sliding Mitre Saw makes the whole process much easier and quicker.

“ so far my rage3 saw has never let me down, i’m still using the first blade!” I have recently finished one of my smaller projects but it turned out to be one of the most fun - a party sized BBQ. The cooking surface is 60” long by 32“ wide. I made it by cutting a 200 gallon fuel oil tank in half, removing one foot from the middle of the oval shaped tank and welding hinges. Plus everything else it takes to make a big BBQ grill.
I have used it five times since I built it this spring and it works great. I can cook 50 Shish kebabs at once or half a pig! Every piece of Steel used to build the BBQ was cut by my RAGE3 10” Sliding Mitre Saw and it worked great. I like the precise cuts that can be made easily, without having to clean up the cuts with my grinder... like I had to with my previous saws!

metal railings I have had my Rage2 355mm Multipurpose Cut Off Saw for over 2 years now and we have worked harmoniously together.
This proved a breeze with the Rage2 Multipurpose Blade, the cuts were clean and produced no sparks or burr whatsoever.
I spend a lot of time refurbishing metal railings while also fabricating new industrial railings, meaning I have to cut 20mm x 20mm solid bar and 40mm solid round bar all day, every day.
I am amazed with the build quality and durability, the RAGE blade is robust and provided me with non-stop cutting performance day-in day-out. Thank-you Evolution!

I HAVE BEEN
GOBSMACKED BY THE EASE
Awesome! I’ve just bought a RAGE2 355mm Multipurpose Cut Off Saw and a RAGE3 255mm Multipurpose Sliding Mitre Saw ...wish I’d heard of these tools before!
My daughter then asked me if I had a saw she could use to make some picture frames for her upcoming art exhibition. “I’ll try the RAGE”, I thought!
At Rhino Trikes, we build bolt-on trike frames to suit the ‘Suzuki Intruder’ range of motorbikes. We need to cut Steel box and tube accurately at a range of different angles.
Slices cleanly and accurately through the timber... 20 minutes and she had enough perfect 45º angles for ten frames!
We have found Abrasive Disc machines woefully inadequate and have, in the past, resorted to cutting by hand using 5” Angle Grinders.
“ i can’t wait to try out the rage3, which the postie has just dropped off! my brand loyalty lies solely with evolution”
I’ve just cut all the mitre angles for four axles using the RAGE2 and have been gobsmacked by the ease with which it cuts; no fuss, no drama, like a knife through butter!

i can’t think of
has a product of this
I’m a Steel fabricator based in Southport, Merseyside and have been using Cut Off saws for the last 14 years. In that time I’ve probably gone through approximately 18 saws by several different manufacturer’s such as Makita, Bosch, Ryobi, Dewalt and a couple of cheaper brand saws. The Makita, Ryobi and Bosch all-in the last 12 months! All these saws mentioned are over-rated, over-priced and made to poor standards - some of these companies state the saws are for industrial use… yeah right! The last saw I purchased was the latest Bosch, it lasted 3 weeks! So I opted for the Evolution RAGE2 355mm Cut Off Saw this time. I’ve had it 9 days now and already the results speak for themselves. There’s no harmful dust, it cuts square, it cuts at least 3 times faster and it doesn’t struggle through any of the Steels I’ve been cutting; 12mm x 12mm Square Bar (up to 30mm), 30mm Square Bar, Box Section from 20mm
x 20mm (up to 100mm x 100mm) - this machine eats this stuff for breakfast without breaking into a sweat, it’s got to be one of the best bigger hand tools on the market today and trust me I’ve tried most of them. I can’t think of any manufacturer on the market that has a product of this calibre! Nothing else comes anywhere near this machine... what a fantastic product! I know a lot of people in fabricating who are always looking for these types of machines and I’m going to recommend the RAGE2 instantly to them. I highly commend this machine and look forward to buying more of Evolution power tools in the near future.
“ it’s about time THAT someone came along WHO had THE expertise to produce something of this quality, UNlike some of the OTHER manufacturer’s on the market. Plus it’s at a fair price!”

THE FENCE BEFORE & AFTER THE RENOVATION 18
I was lucky enough to have been bought a RAGE 185mm Multipurpose Circular Saw for my birthday, but it didn’t really get much use until the missus decided we needed a new fence! We went to our local garden centre, where we were amazed to find the panels we wanted could not be bought off the shelf. The nearest we could get in store was £80 per panel! After a discussion, we decided to price-up the wood and I would give it a go with my new RAGE saw - I was totally won over by the ease of use, the smooth, accurate cuts and the fantastic splinter-free finish. I originally estimated it would take two or three weekends to replace all 18 panels, but I did it all-in one!
I feel the RAGE Saw outperformed anything else I had ever used and the accurate cuts it produced meant I could totally trust the saw to cut whatever I wanted - exactly to size, millimetre perfect. My new saw has already paid for itself many times over and I now use it to make bird tables and garden furniture for family and friends. I now have a new hobby which I would never have thought of before I was lucky enough to have a RAGE saw. It makes cutting wood a dream. Thank-you for a fantastic product, which I look forward to using for many years to come.

“You can have this old trailer if you want pal, but it needs a bit of work to make it decent again”.
I set about dismantling the trailer which revealed the first piece of good news, a solid chassis. This meant I had at least a decent base on which to build the new Steel framework and timber on.
That sounded like a fair offer if ever I heard one, a free trailer? Surely all it would need is a lick of Hammerite, a coat of varnish and it would be as good as new. Or so I thought, a closer inspection revealed the timber was in fact rotten and almost all the Steel looked like it had spent the last five years at the bottom of the North Sea.
I used the RAGE Circular Saw throughout the job and it was a revelation - a superb piece of kit saving both time and effort, as well as making the finished result much easier to achieve. The first task was to cut the new pieces of angled Steel ready for welding onto the chassis, thus forming the framework.
I then used it moments later, to cut a new piece of marine Plywood to size, forming the new base. The trailer all of a sudden was starting to look like it would make it out onto the road. With the frame and base in place, I used the RAGE’s timber cutting capability once again, this time to size the new tongue and groove side panels...
