Axcaliber MT1 Mitre Trimmer
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.
Top Trim Attachment for Mitre Trimmer

Cut Length Attachment for Mitre Trimmer
The cut length attachment is 736mm(29") long with an arm for each side of the trimmer and a length stop. It enables repeat cutting to precise length to be carried out.

Mentally challenging rewarded by excellent performance !The basic machine is of good, sturdy quality and cuts perfect, clean mitres with ease, and I'm very pleased with it. However, the setting up of the aluminium angle extension arms was challenging to achieve repeatably accurate lengths, but once ' the penny had dropped ' and an ordinary joiner's try square placed at the 'right-angle' formed by the left and right extension arms apex, repeatable lengths were attained by referencing the moveable 'stop' to the scale on each arm ! I'm very pleased with results.
