Evolution Fury3 8-1/4 Multi-Purpose Sliding Miter Saw

evolution_rage3.jpgThe madmen who brought us the Rage Circular Saw (which is capable of cutting the Golden Gate Bridge in half) have recently expanded their rugged technology into a mini-compound miter saw called the Fury3.

This saw, like the Rage can cut through everything from steel to wood to aluminum. Having the ability to make a quick (and straight) cut on a metal stud, trim a 2x4 and also zip the end off an aluminum gutter all with the same saw sounds pretty appealing. As with the Rage, this multi-material cutting power seems to be a combination of the hi-torque gear box and the blade design.

Because the saw is only 8-1/4", it weighs a mere 22 lbs. so it's going to be easily portable and it'll be no problem carrying it up a ladder or slinging it on some pipe staging. Neither of these things you want to do with a 12".

The Fury3 sells for around $200 which sounds to us like a great price for what it could be capable of. We do wonder about blade life though. Regardless of design, how much abuse can any blade take? In addition it's not like you can mosey into the local Home Depot and get a blade for this tool, you'll need to go to the manufacturer (who, at this point, doesn't even list replacement blades on their store).
