Reliable Little Work HorseThis was the first bench tool I bought out of Uni. One of my employers had one that had lasted him and we found no fault in it. I bought my own and it's never let me down. I use it to cut box, T section and Tube aluminium mainly as well as flat lengths of ali and wood. Adjusting the angle is easy and acurate and locks in position tightly, it also clamps your material in place. The guard protects your fingers too without getting in the way of what you're doing. I have mine screwed to a piece of wood and hung on the wall when it's not in use so it's easy to just plug in and cut. I can't fault this product. It will cut up to 25mm box section comfortably. Mine is now 6 years old and as good as the day I bought it.
