Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by planeluck Perfect for the occasional home project.
Assembly was easy enough, even though supplied "manual" is so limited. I cut some 45s on a piece of molding and it did it accurately and cleanly. It is a good buy if you will only need it occasionally. Not recommended for contract type work. A powered unit would be advised for that.

The miter box and saw were easy to assemble and seemed to be pretty accurate. I was expecting the miter box unit to be a bit more substantial. The next trick will be finding replacement blades for the saw. It is easy to use and transport.

I LIKED WHAT I PURCHASED EXCEPT FOR ONE MINOR PROBLEM.T HE 2 HEIGHT ADJUSTING SCREWS STRIPPED OUT OF THE PLASTIC RETAINERS BEFORE MY FIRST USE. IT WOULD BE NICE IF SUCTION CUPS COULD HAVE BEEN USED INSTEAD OF THE 4 RUBBER MOUNTS. THEY DO NOT KEEP THE SAW FROM MOVING. IT IS EASY TO USE.

This saw if for home use only It is a good saw but will not withstand commercial use. I did my trim and baseboard and it worked great!

I use this saw for making picture frames. It cut well and precise. Do not force and let the saw do the work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RogerK Good product with a major caveat
I purchased this product to help with trimming baseboard, door and window trim for our house. It is a GREAT product for cutting door and window trim providing neat and accurate cuts. Mounting the saw on a 1x10 makes it easier to use (a 2x10 would have been more rigid but was too heavy). On the downside, I ended up having to resort to my power compound miter saw for the baseboard trim. The saw blade on this device is too flexible to make truly vertical cuts on our 4" trim, even with the tension screw tightened as much as possible. Stanley would have had a perfect product had it used a more rigid solid back tenon saw instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Best hand mitre.
I've usually used the wood or plastic miter, but now that I purchased this box, I'll never waste my money on any other box.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Will A fairly decent mitre box
Pros: Easy to assemble, nice preset angles that seem accurate, cuts are very clean. Holes in the feet allow the box to be secured to your bench - or the flat feet can be clamped down.
Cons: A little light in feel, not the level of quality I expect from Stanley. I shall be making a new handle, the plastic one is more suitable to a toy. The yellow plastic clamps are fairly useless. The cutoff stop rod needs a flattened bottom, as it doesn't allow the set screw to fix its position - it will rotate and move even with the set screw firmly tightened - easily fixed by a few strokes of a metal file.
Cutting moulding was a breeze, a sheer delight.
Had trouble cutting hardwood though, it would start off cutting down 90 degrees vertical, but slowly curve to the right by the end of the cut. Could it have been my technique, how I was holding or pushing the saw? Perhaps... I tried either hands, and even tried sawing very lightly, all with the same curved outcome with hardwoods. Perhaps the blade tension is off, I'll have to test that.
Overall a very nice mitre saw and box, best I could find.
