Evolution - RAGE3-S300

This Mitre Saw is mounted on the main workbench with the height set to allow for the surrounding bench top to be utilised for support. Members are required to ensure that when cutting, the material is firmly clamped in place.

DeWalt - DW717XPS

This Mitre Saw is mounted on a portable frame with extendable roller supports. The saw can be repositioned in the workshop to suit the requirement of the user, however it should be returned to its 'home' after use to keep the workshop tidy. Members are required to ensure that when cutting, the material is firmly clamped in place.
