A couple of different Toolmonger readers have written in to ask us what we think of the Evolution Rage circ saws. If you haven’t heard of them, here’s their elevator speech: they claim their saws can cut through steel, aluminum, and wood — even wood with nails in it — with “virtually no burr or sparks.” They also say that their saws don’t heat up steel, which means you can handle the cut right afterward.
Besides these claims, they’re pretty much standard circ saws. The 7-1/4″ model (pictured) cuts 2-1/8″ at 90 degrees or 1-3/8″ at 45. The interesting part is that it spins at 3,500 rpm. Also of note: Evolution claims this model has a “30 minute maximum duty cycle.”
Sadly, we haven’t tried one of these out. Until we can rectify that, do any of you have experience with ’em? Let us know in comments.
