I have this saw, had it for probably 4 years and can recommend. Used mostly for wood and still on the original blade but had to fit new brushes last year. Would definitely buy again.
I think the r255sms would be a better buy.
This saw has usually ended up at £99.99 for large portions of the year from somebody or other for previous versions of the 210mm saw
The newer Evolution R210SMS is £110 at B&Q.
Any cheap stands?

This is a version that makes a longer cross cut (300mm vs 230mm). Better portability than the 255, and saves a tiny bit more space when storing.

Compare this with new equivalent sms210-300 and you’re saving £50ish. I prefer the handle on the newer model, but don’t think I’d pay that much extra for it.

This or the R210SMS that ccparkhill pointed out above if it’s just for skirting. Look at the R255SMS for better versatility if you you’re going to do more projects.

Just wanting to agree with Nicebob,had ours for about the same time and the same blade too.Only downside is when cutting wood the sawdust seems to stick to the red laser light so you need to scratch it off regularly with your finger nail. Good price still,think ours was about £80 when new .

The motor was making a load burring sound and loosing power, I thought it was probably knacked but changed the brushes and it was as good as new, got them off eBay for less than a tenner. Very easy job to change just took a few minutes.
would this be suitable to make a planter box and a bench out of spare decking wood?

certainly would, even reclaimed wood, this blade goes through nails like butter!

Had mine for about 2 years and its still on the same brushes and blade and its had a right hammering, probably the best £120 i've ever spent on a tool.
Good find OP

bought mine for one laminate job and ive just kept using it, the thing just works! more than paid for itself. it is worth setting up properly out of the box to ensure everything is square but id do that with any mitre saw i bought.

I'm still learning all this stuff but I've adjusted mine a little and made it better. Like it that much I got the circular saw 2 days ago and made an extension for my shed haha!
Can anyone recommend a good replacement blade for this? Is it best to stick to the evolution blades? They seem a bit more pricey than others.

if it mainly wood you are cutting i use the lidl circular saw blades (2.99 each) and use a bosch spacer bush from amazon that cost around 3quid also.

Thanks I'll take a look. £2.99 is much better

2600100232 search that number on amazon(thats the bosch part number) the adaptor is only 2.93 but is an add on item. but if you buy that (been using mine 3 years and still on same one and prob around 30 plus blades) you can then just buy any standard 30mm bore circ saw blade which are easy to come by

Superb. Thanks for the info Greggles

Agreed. Especially as it includes a second blade.
Ah annoying. I only decided I needed one today and no stock anywhere
Some advice needed, please: I need to get a mitre saw to cut 100x200 sleepers. Now I know I can't get one to cut the 100mm so will need to cut on one side and then make a second cut on the other. Would it be best to get this one with 60mm maximum cut or the next model up with 80mm depth?
