probablynot Posted September 30, 2015 Share #1 Posted September 30, 2015 I started my model shipbuilding career a little under three years ago.One of the first mini-tools I bought was a cheap, plastic, 6-inch long mitre box, to ensure that I could cut stripwood to a true 90° (or 45°), and to help when I heeded to cut several pieces to the exact same size. I'm still using that mitre box, though the saw slots are now considerably wider than they were when I bought it. So unless I'm careful to press the saw against one particular side of the slot, I can no longer rely on getting a true 90° cut, neither can I be sure of cutting the wood to an exact length.Later, I bought an (even cheaper) aluminiun mitre box, thinking it might be a more durable tool. Well it might be durable, but to be honest I've never actually used it. I wouldn't want the saw teeth rubbing against metal all the time.Is there no such thing as a mini mitre cutter?What I have in mind is a mini version of the device sketched here: I've had the full-sized version - a tool made by Morso - for many years. It'll make a good, swift, accurate job of cutting wood as large as 4in by 2in, but it would be no good for cutting, say, 24 identical 13mm lengths of 2mm by 1mm walnut.Ca anybody please point me to a mini mitre cutting tool that's both accurate and durable? Preferably one that's available in the UK/Europe? Canute, mtaylor and cristikc 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
