    I have searched but it has been a while since one of these threads

    I want a saw for general DIY duities. I am looking for a budget of around £60-75. I have seen that the evolution saws would fit that price but I am put off by having to buy specific blades.

    Erbauer does one for a similar price as does silverline, titan and black and decker (avoid these last three?)

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Black & Decker are actually alright for DIY, their tools are of reasonable quality for light use. The evolution is alright but if you won't be cutting metal with it then prob not worth bothering with.
    Green Bosch or Skil are ok too, and either should be within budget.
