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.
|Blade Width||45 mm|
|Max Cap @ 45º||82 mm x 150 mm|
|Max Cap @ 90º||180 mm|
|Max Cutting Height||150 mm|
|Table Size||360 mm x 78 mm|

InaccurateDisappointing. 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.

Needs Better ClampingReasonable 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.
