These blades are great when they are new, for cutting thin/ thin walled material at a right angle. The specs for this blade say it cuts stainless steel plate. I made 1 angled cut on 100 x 10mm flat bar, I had to cut it on the wide face because of the angle, and that ruined the blade. It couldn't cut anything after this. Obviously I contacted Evolution about this to complain, they recommended that material is cut always on the thin edge to 'prolong blade life', using the vise jig that comes with the saw that holds square tube material in a 'diamond' position. I knew this from when I bought the saw, but feel that if the blade isn't capable of angled cuts it should be specified. They also said that (from pics i sent) that i hadn't tightened the blade nut sufficiently, or that the material wasn't clamped tight enough in the vise and the movement caused the blade to chip. I had tightened both firmly by hand, if that isn't enough then it's not practical. I was very disappointed to spend almost £100 on a blade that was useless in less than a day. If the specs had been different, I would just done that angled cut with a grinder. They also told me that the Evolution saw this blade is for is not intended for workshop production, but rather portable 'on site' use. Again - that should be specified.
I have had similar issues with their steel saw blades - when they are new they go through steel like a hot knife through butter, but as soon as you start using them for anything other than the 'ideal position', they blunt quickly. The saw is a great price, but the blades are expensive and can't be sharpened, so not good value for money in the long term. I'm converting to a Ferm band saw after seeing how well it works for a colleague.
Really poor quality, goes blunt even faster than the multi-purpose blade. Deliberately upgraded from the MP version as recommended by the manufacturer. At twice the price I would expect more than about 20 bits of box section out of this. The first few are fine no sparks and clean cut but very soon it will start to spark and you know the edge has gone. I’ve nursed these blades so gently to try and get some life out of them but they are rubbish. Unless you can afford to pretty much buy a new one for every job forget it. The motor just runs too fast and they overheat even though they are supposedly rated for this speed. Save up and buy a dewalt or a makita, twice the price but the blades get far better reviews. I only use these for occasional diy use but they’re not really up to more than hardwood or the occasional bit of ally.
Dryliner review. The worst blades I've ever had the misfortune of losing £70 on. I bought the evolution chop saw direct from evolution (nice saw), with the same blue disc fitted (shight). Didn't last 2 days. The replacement disc made 8 cuts on 2mm metsec and 20 cuts on 1.2mm. Shameful ripoff! The orange 355mm disc is the one to get if you've got the evolution saws. Better still get the Makita TCT chop saw instead. You'll save money in the long run. And they're quieter.
5mm metal plate pieces long almost 1 meter and disk finished.. i know about diamond position or vertical cutting, but in my situation possible only horizontal cut on the table surface.. for wood was perfect but i buy this for steel cutting. Simply disappointed
poor quality and even poorer technical knowledge from the questions guy on here.. I used the multi cut blade first and that managed to do a day just so was hoping that the 1 for metal cutting alone would have been alot better but turns out it wasnt even as good.... terrible
Malo malo malo. Una estafa. 8 cortes en 40x40x4 y está para tirar. No malgastes tu dinero con este producto. Me ha costado 10€ cada corte. El envío rapidísimo como siempre pero me devolverá Amazon mi dinero?
