Axcaliber MT1 Mitre Trimmer


Key Features

  • Substantial machined cast iron, razor sharp, tool steel blades
  • Shearing action results in a glass like finish on end grain
  • Trims off fine shavings for the most precise mitres

Whether you are a picture framer, a carpenter or a cabinetmaker the need for accurate mitres is paramount. This heavy-duty trimmer is a substantial piece of machined cast iron, with razor sharp, tool steel blades. Using a long lever with a rack and pinion mechanism, it enables you to trim off fine shavings for the most precise fit. Its shearing action results in an incredible glass-like finish even on soft wood end grain. Look on it as a type of specialist plane, whose purpose is to produce precision mitres. There is no exaggeration as to the level of precision you can achieve with this machine. You are guaranteed precise mitres every time.
Each fence has two adjustable cam stops, one at 0° and one at 45°. The fences are also lockable at any intermediate angle. This trimmer can easily handle picture frames, dado rails, mouldings and more. The maximum size it will handle is 100mm(4") high by about 150mm(6") wide at 90° or 98mm wide at 45°.
The optional Top Trim accessory allows you to trim mouldings with hollowed, tapered or curved outside edges. This attachment presents the moulding to the blade at an angle of 45° to the vertical rather than the horizontal, allowing mitres to be trimmed on curved, hollow or difficult to hold mouldings. The maximum width the Top Trim can handle is 65mm and there is only one angle option, 45°. The other optional accessory is the Cut Length attachment allowing you to perform repeat cuts to the exact same length up to a maximum of 735mm(29") long.

As other reviews have stated, this is an excellent piece of kit. I used one for many years when teaching and have just bought my own. BE AWARE though that the maximum size of material stated in the spec (150mm at 90 deg.) is a maximum and reduces at an angle of 45 deg depending on the thickness. I wanted to trim a piece of material which was 138mm x 26mm and it wouldn't quite fit. (as the height increases, the effective width decreases). Obvious when you see it but hadn't taken this into account when reading the spec. Oh well, will just have to trim them another way.

I bought one of these in 2013 to do the mitres in the cornices and pelmets in a kitchen I was installing, and was VERY impressed by the results - they make me look like a professional woodworker! The material was plastic covered MDF and it cut cleanly and accurately. One of the main benefits is the ability to make very fine adjustments, just shaving off a tiny piece at a time, if the corner is not exactly 90 degrees, as is often the case with skirtings. But there is a whole other use in cutting square ended timbers to exact lengths and exactly square, ideal if your tenon sawing is not 100%. I use it all the time for fine woodwork now. Blades still sharp after many cuts. DO be very careful of your fingers and how you are gripping the tool as you tend to forget that there is always a second blade moving as well as the one you are concentrating on!

I have now produced seven picture frames so far with excellent mitres. I use a chop saw to initially cut the moulding oversize and then the mitre cutter to finish. Do ensure the cutter trims the whole face of the moulding.

Extremely minor adjustments required to set up the device for the first time these were easily achieved.
The quality of the cut on hard or softwoods are perfect every time, easily comparable to high end professional machines. A must have tool for all woodshops

I am writing this review as the machine is very well made and works perfectly. The review that criticises it is inaccurate. When setting the machine to 45 degrees the sprung pin is pushed down so that the guide plate passes over it, then when cutting 45 degrees there is no movement and it is set at 45 degrees exactly. The previous reviewer states the pin moves under pressure....this is because he has not moved the guide plate over the sprung pin so it is pushing against the flat surface and not the angle edge which is designed so the plate passes over the pin! Stating it does not cut 45 degrees indicates he has not understood how to set the machine up properly. I have written this as that review nearly put me off buying......I am glad I decided to buy it as it works perfectly. The instructions could have been more detailed so that these difficulties would not have happened.
