    When Toolmonger posted an item about the Evolution saws I commented that I had been using a similar – if not identical to the MK Morse saw.
    At that time MK Morse marketed them as Metal Devils – CSM7 MB @7inch and CSM9MB @9 inch. Morse also sells several different saw blades – one for mild steel, another for stainless and a third for aluminum. I’ve used it to cut mild steel plate – and it works well with a fresh blade. It works even better on roof decking which is thinner and hard to cut easily with any other tool – this saw is good for that application.
    I’ve heard that the secret to it working – is a tooth geometry and material (cermet?) that results in much cooler running.
    I also said that “I’ve used the 9 inch Morse Saw on roof decking (corrugated sheet steel). It has a chip collection chamber (needs to be emptied regularly) – but other than that there are very few sparks flying about and landing on folks beneath the work. This was never the case with abrasive wheel cutting – and nibbling was never a practical option.” And that “ I continue to be impressed using my Morse (aka Evolution Saw). I was a bit worried about life expectancy – based on the warnings in the instruction manual – but I think thay are conservative – or are based on very severe use. I use mine for metal roof decking – not plate steel.”
    I’ve not tried the chop saw variant – as we do most of our in-shop cutting with either our tilting band saw (Armstrong-Blum Marvel) or our Doall.
