Craftsman Evolv saw works very good

Great price for a great item.  This Craftsman evolv 12 amp saw is a very good item to have.  Ive never owned a saw so didn't really know what type I would need.  After being helped buy a great salesperson it was this one that made it home.  It is light, powerful and very handy.  I love that it still carries the Craftsman name.  This cut all the plywood and 2 by 4s for the fort I made my kids.

Definately not a precision tool!

The sled on this saw did not line up with the blade. I tried to use a straight edge with this saw and it was not possible. I started my cut with the sled against the edge and all went well until the blade was about halfway into the cut, at this point the blade directed me into the straight edge until the saw hit a bind. Upon measuring the front and back of the blade in relation to the edge of the sled, I found a 1/32nd discrepancy. This may not sound like much, but it is enough to draw the blade and sled into the straight edge, making it impossible to make a cut with a straight edge. To me, this is unacceptable. The reason I gave it two stars, rather than one, is because it had good power to cut through 3/4 inch ply. If you never plan on using a straight edge and cut only with the blade notch, you will be fine with this saw. If precision woodwork is your thing, look somewhere else.

Craftsman Evolv 12 amp Circular Saw light weight and easy to use for women

Im a single mom and needed something to build a small dog house for our new puppy. I didnt want to buy lots of tools and Craftsman has a great reputation so this was a good option for my project. I read all the directions, safety guidelines and it did what it said it would do! Our puppy has a new home now too! The price was right and was able to pick it up at my local Sears hardware store the day I ordered it.

We have always been very satisfied by our Sears tools.

Though we have not used it yet will will be building a deck this summer and will put it to good use. We have been buying Sears tools for over 40 years and have always loved our tools. Our 40 year old circular saw just stopped working and that is why we purchased this one.

Good little saw

I got this on sale I am a weekend warrior and this will handle all my little project that I will have. Ready to go right out side the box. I got it while on sale and couldn't ask for anything more.

If I had money or I was a serious carpenter I would not have bought this.

I bought this as a birthday gift for my dad and he loves it. We are pretty faithful to Craftsman tools. We love the quality, the price, and the manufacturers warranty

Light yet powerful

I got this one, since am working in a step stool, not a big project still The Craftsman Evolve is a basic need for both the structure as many made on 2X4s and the steps on 1" plywood ... Why pay more for a tool than the project itself ? Also when the next fix up will come along still will have a great saw which has already paid by itself.

Craftsman tools are the greatest

My father purchased the craftsman circular saw many, many years ago and I have always used his circular saw when I needed one until one day I would have to say his saw was over 30 years old finally retired it went kapoot so I finally invested in one of my own.

Good Deal for the Money

If you or your loved one tinkers around the house and does not use this daily this is defiantely a good deal. Works and handles very well. Problematic if building anything of large size that needs straight percision cuts, as it is a 7 1/4" saw.

Great tool, low price

I use this tool for home use. I has been great and no problems yet. The price is right and it has good warranty. The blade it comes with is very sharp and last a long time.

Saw is okay

HATE the safety start button. I have small hands and this adds to my effort. The saw does not go to exactly zero degree for straight/square cuts. I am going to have to take to the store to see if someone there can get it straight. Did I mention I am a girl?

Great Value

It's one of the least expensive saws available. I was able to get it on sale, so it was a really bargain. With a good blade on it, it cuts straight and true. It might not be as smooth as a Makita or Bosch, but it gets the job done. Perfect, if you just need a saw occasionally.

Nice, but too light.

Ergonomics and power are great for this entry-level saw. However, the thing is simply too lightweight for me - and this loses cutting bite.
