Anyone use the Evolution circular saw? Looking at metal cutting saws and I have seen these around, including at the local metal supplier. Seems like a good price.
Not yet, I'm considering a dedicated metal saw (well, one designed for it) right now I've got a couple of worm drives with the Diablo metal cutting blades in them.

I have owned the circular saw for several years .By the price you know it isn't high end quality . I found it to be great purchase .I have not pulled out my cutting torch since owning it .I make metal post bases ,beam flanges,misc tools . It is like cutting wood though a bit slower . Thinking if I had a crew and many people using it I might upgrade .

I've heard circular saws made to cut metal using a toothed/non-abrasive blade referred to as "cold saws"? They normally run at lower RPM and I've always wanted to check one out. I've looked into the evolution saws, they're supposedly decent for being on the lower end of the price scale.

I use a skill wd just swap the blade and off you go. I also get all of my lgs pre cut so i haven't cut this since getting precut. I just show up with my rig, magnetic torpedo, and impacts. Great reduced the tool packages on the metal framing packages. We throw that chit together like an ikea kitchen.
