Rated 3 out of 5Â 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 1 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Laura The saw needs to be two inches longer
The saw for this box needs to be about 2" longer so it doesn't slip out of the channels while you are sawing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â 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.
