Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mrsdiy76 Great for small jobs/short term use
We bought this prior to investing in a mitre saw to use for small molding jobs around the house. It served it's purpose well, however it's precision gradually declined with use. Where very precise cuts are needed, use the pins included to hold the material in place and go slow! The plastic box does give, and it doesn't take much force to throw the angle off or to cut the plastic itself with the saw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RVASys Inexpensive Tool for a Precise Cut
This Miter Box was a perfect tool for the precise cut I needed for the Shower/Tub Frameless Sliding Door I installed. It held the Upper Channel while I cut it to an exact 1/32nd margin of error with a power saw.(Not Recommended - power saw - that is!) The box comes with pegs to hold the material from moving in any direction.
I didn't use the saw as it was for wood. The piece I cut was an aluminum alloy. I used a Saws-All blade for metal.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lacada Okay product, not that accurate, not tall enough
I have a power miter saw, but I was cutting baseboard trim late at night in a condo with neighbors on both sides, so I bought this miter box so I could make a few cuts noiselessly. Well a lot less noise and dust than the power saw!! Straight cuts are fine, the 45 degree cuts are not as accurate as the power miter saw, but caulk will cover it. The box is not tall enough for my baseboard, which is only 3.5 inches tall, so check that whatever you are cutting is under 3.5 inches, otherwise you cannot use the 22.5 degree cuts, and there is a 45 degree cut with the workpiece lying on its back, but only in one direction. Also with just a few cuts the saw is cutting into the plastic box, so I expect that the accuracy will go down quickly. The cam pins are a really nice touch. All in all not that good, but it's inexpensive and if you only need a few accurate-enough cuts and you don't feel like dealing with the dust and noise of your chopsaw, this could work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scubadiving Worth the money spent
I am retiring from the military and wanted to build my own shadowbox because I knew how I wanted it. Since most of my tools were packed for the move, I decided to buy the miter box and saw. Was perfect for the job that I needed to do.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robert A good miter box for the price.
You get what you pay for and for the price, this miter box does an excellent job for small jobs. What makes this box superior over the Buck Brothers is the built in honey comb clamps. This feature holds the wood very well and helps in getting clean accurate cuts. I recommend that you use both clamps. Don't think you can get away with using only one and holding the other end. You have two clamps, so use them. It helps a lot.
I would have given this box five stars but the saw is too short. It is 12 inches. The Buck Brothers is 14 inches. You could use the two extra inches. But the Buck Brothers does not have the built in clamps and this is why the Stanley is superior.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by singlishps Poorly made, but usable
The saw is terrible, but it's sharp enough to cut through the plastic miter box. It takes about 100 strokes to cut through 3" by 11/16 molding, a task that my old miter saw can do with a third of the effort . I couldn't use my old saw because I needed the 45-degree horizontal angle, and my old saw's blade isn't deep enough for this miter box. So use it if you have to, but once you use this you'll start wondering if you can borrow a power miter saw from a friend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fireplug Nice cutting
Makes nice mitre cuts, only wish that it was a better material. After only a few dozen uses, the plastic is showing saw marks.
