In Detail

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 90mm high by about 150mm wide at 90° or 98mm wide at 45°.

Top tool

Been struggling for a while now to cut perfect mitres, however problem now solved with this tool. It cuts absolutely perfect 45 degree angles straight from the box. Another great tool from Axminster.

45 degre angles

i bought one of these when the price was about £100, quite a while ago. As i was only going to use it to cut picture moldings for my wife I set the Angles to 45 degree which isn't easy. There is a lot of small modifications to do to get both angles to exactly 45deg, as when you put both cut joints together you need to check that you get a right angle corner. If you don't you are never quite sure which side is off angle it is a trial and error job even when using a good combination square. Eventually you can get it to cut both angles correctly on the wood you are using. Now here is the rub, the angles you cut in obichi wood may be accurate but if you then try cutting the angles in other soft wood and hard woods you may find the angles will not be accurate. Oak cuts differently than a soft grained pine, or mahogany, so you have to start making adjustments. I have made about 200 frames using mainly obichi wood and I am now finding that the cast iron grooves are starting to wear, even though they are kept lubricated and this again is affecting the angles.
I am going to enquirer about the new more professional guillotines and will probably change over to one of these.
As an afterthought you should also check that the bottom and side faces of the wood that are the datum faces to be cut are dead on square.

Well worth it.

I've owned this machine for approx. 2 years. Used a sliding mitre saw for many years- picture framing, door mouldings, coffee tables etc .This machine has transformed the level of accuracy I can achieve and the detail quality of the mitre. I was reluctant to spend the money but a good job I did!

As good as it gets

This thing won't cut through solid wood easily.
But it will shave the s*** off of anything, no matter how hard the wood is.
Seriously great tool.
Like everyone says.
Really! watch your fingers though! It slides both ways and the knife is like razor blade.
The length attachment is pretty much worthless. Make something for it yourself.
You'll thank us for it later. Lol

A note about size of material

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.
