In Detail

A very useful mitre saw which can be used for cutting mitres and bevels as well as compound angles. There are pre-set stops for setting both mitre and bevel angles of 15°, 22.5°, 30°, 36°, 45° and 90° and intermediate mitre angles can also be selected. A work clamp and repeat length stop are provided as well as a base board for added stability. The blade provided with the saw has 14 teeth per inch, suitable for wood cutting, and there are also two finer blades available.

Inaccurate

Disappointing. 90 degree is way out. And, by virtue of that being out, so are all the others - like the 45 degree mitre angle. This is because there seems to be something fundamentally wrong with the moulding. The mitre angle is adjusted by means of a fixed tooth on the saw carriage that locates into fixed slots on the underside of the main assembly and so fixed in relation to the fence. As far as I can see there is no way of adjusting this.

There was also too much slop in the saw vertical guides and so would be hopeless if you needed to make a really critical cut.

Needs Better Clamping

Reasonable build quality, but unfortunately not really any good for high, thin workpieces (e.g. skirting). That said, a reasonable cut could be achieved with another person holding the workpiece stable.

Niggles I found which apply to skirting:

- Clamping backpiece is only ~45mm high and so achieving stability of high workpieces is difficult. The ridges do not help with patterned workpieces.

- The clamping mechanism is poor. quickclamps ether side helped.

- Tendency of cut to drift off vertical unless you are extremely careful

- Mitre angle guide does not lock for intermediate angles e.g. 70 degrees.
