Evolution RAGE3-S 210mm Sliding Compound Mitre Saw 240V
Evolution RAGE3-S 210mm Sliding Compound Mitre Saw 240V
Offered by Executivez
Price: £171.50

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst. Assembly instructions. Ever., 31 May 2016
Worst. Assembly instructions. Ever.

Unpacked the saw to find it was scratched in several places and covered in black grease in other places.

I read the Assembly Instructions, only to find diagrams missing and the link that Evolution provide in the booklet for their on-line assembly instruction manual is either a dead link or a rock n roll soundtrack video to see how brilliantly it cuts through nails in wood. Yay!

So, if you can make quantum leaps between 'not assembled' and 'assembled', then great. I couldn't, as there was no diagram 4, 6, and 9. Brilliant!

Their online manual that you can download also has the same missing diagrams.

Their QR scan link was dead, also.

Eventually found a video on Youtube – it has NO narrative to describe what the bloke is actually doing, BUT, I would recommend watching this as being slightly better than an assembly manual with missing diagrams and awful instructions.

It’s probably ironic or something that Evolution boast that it’s made in Britain. Maybe if they made the instructions in Britain (in English) as well?

The saw? I don’t know as I’m not sure if it’s actually set up properly because of the awful instructions. I tried cutting some off-cuts and it doesn’t look as if it’s at 90 degrees. It cut up some firewood okay.

I will persist and report back…………………

Just so you know, the mitre saw stand (available on Amazon for £49.99) manual is just as bad. AND, you end up with lots of spare parts, wondering, “did I do it right?”.

No Instructions?

For anyone who didn't receive any instructions with their vest:

I looked on the interweb and found a similar vest with the same configuration of floats. Hope it helps :-)

1.0 out of 5 stars Pick a temperature, any temperature....., 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When my baby was poorly and was very hot to the touch I used this to discover that he had a different temperature each time I took it, ranging from 37.5 to 39.9 All I could establish was that his temperature MAY have been, and probably was, too high.
Unlike the more expensive Braun thermometer, which I am now going to buy, this one doesn't have anything to indicate whether the tip has been inserted correctly onto the ear canal which probably explians the wildly different readings.
Not really reassuring and I wouldn't recommend it.

I bought this for my teenage daughter who is a massive fan of The Walking Dead and she absolutely loves it. Quality seems good too - been washed several times and still looks good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant time-saving tool, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having tried using an angle grinder for pointing and found it a bit (lot) scary I bought this to save cutting a finger/hand off. Absolutely brilliant bit of kit - Sooooooo easy and quick to use with a cordless drill it cleared out the old mortar in no time. The only problem is where the gaps between the bricks are too small, but then that's the previous builder's problem.
Excellent tool. Definitely recommend it.

I like the fact that it's 'natural', compared with some of the other chemicals designed to do the same job. Worked well, cleaned the coffee machine and kettle no problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rockschool Drums Grade 1, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my teenage daughter who's just taken up the drums.
It's good that it comes with a CD with different versions of the same songs - with a click track and without.
She finds the book/cd very useful and enjoys it.
The only downside I can see so far is that there are at least 8 books in the series and at £12-15 a pop, it's not THAT cheap.
That said, the enjoyment she gets from it is value for money, so definitely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginner dum sticks, 8 April 2014

Bought for my teenage daughter who's just taken up the drums. Inexpensive sticks that are light and solid enough for a young beginner. If she decides she's serious about playing I would maybe consider more expensive alternatives, but for now, ideal.
