Product Overview

One of the harder parts of carpentry and DIY projects is getting precise angles. With the BORA MiteriX Duplicator Tool, it becomes the easiest part of the job. This tool does exactly what you think it does - it precisely measures angles, then locks the angle (and even splits in half) to transfer that exact angle to your miter saw. This means your miter cuts will match precisely, without that unsightly gap that is all too common when measuring freehand. The great part about this is you can measure an existing angle on a piece of furniture, a corner in another room, etc., and then transfer that exact angle to your miter saw. So, for example, if you're cutting crown molding, cornice molding, wood casing, base board, or trim for an existing piece, stair case, or wall, and the angle you need isn't a perfect-preset angle, this tool will save you hours of frustration, and will ensure that you cut it right the first time. It will also work for a table saw miter gauge setting. Best of all, you'll buy this once, and use it forever and has a one-year warranty. BORA makes the best, and this angle measuring tool is no exception - get yours today.
  • The BORA MiteriX angle duplicator tool will ensure that your miter cuts are at the perfect angle
  • You use the tool to measure the exact miter angle you need (right on your piece), then lock it, and transfer that exact angle to your miter saw, divides the angle in half for a perfect miter - it couldn't be easier
  • Measures internal or external angles from 0-degree - 180-degree (miter angle from 0-90-degree)
  • Collapses and easily folds to fit in your tool box
  • Product collapsed measures 11" x 1.5" x 1.5"

The Bora Miterix Angle tool is a must have for any woodworker that deals with a lot of angles. For years I have had to guess and re guess angles and still not get them right. The first time I used it, the angles were perfect! It's made from strong sturdy materials and is easy to use. I love it!

A Real Time Saver
The angle duplicator is easy to use and saves time in matching up odd-ball miters when installing molding. The tool is, for the most part, well made and should, with reasonable care, last a long time. Care should be taken when the aluminum “arms” are deployed, to avoid bending or damaging them. The lower connection of the removable arm is a metal to metal interface, the upper connection is a molded plastic “snap” that is integral with the thermoplastic arm support. This would appear to be the only “weak link” in the construction, if the plastic gets brittle with age. The packaging states that there is a lifetime warranty, so this should not be a serious concern. For measuring very acute outside angles, one can slide the aluminum arms on the thermoplastic support to extend the measuring capacity for small angles. I used the tool on a particularly challenging corner (two walls and a ceiling) where the ceiling has a bit of a bow to it. It was possible to quickly transfer the angle measurement to the chop saw to cut the molding to fit. This tool should prove to be a real time saver, especially when dealing with surfaces that are not perfectly true.

Makes Tough Angles a Breeze
This angle finder is a great shortcut tool for cutting perfect miters when installing crown or baseboards. It's fairly well thought out, and comes in at close to 1/4 of the price of the fancy German green and white competition. I did an odd-angled outside corner crown molding cut with it, and came out with an airtight miter with no gaps at all. The whole process was really easy and intuitive - no consulting the instructions required! Just match the angle on the wall, pull apart the angle finder, and use the bisected half to line up your saw blade. You will have to cut crown molding nested though, instead of a miter+bevel approach, since Bora didn't think to include an angle scale on the tool. There were a few design aspects that I wasn't a big fan of. The aluminum sliding rails look like they're hand ground - they're sharp and haven't been deburred, and the radiused edge wasn't anodized. The snap-collar that attaches the angle finder together is made of plastic, and it has to be stressed by removing it for EVERY corner you use this on. I'm a little worried about it's longevity. So overall, this is a great tool and a huge time saver, I just have a few concerns about quality and longevity.

Handy to Have
This tool is a bit bulky but appears sturdy and well made. It should last a long time even with heavy use. It is easy to get to know and use and takes the hassle out of getting the miter angle right. It is designed to work on internal and external angles and one arm is easily removable to calculate divided angles. Note that the simple instruction sheet is hidden in the packaging – see photo. The tool comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Simple Tool That WORKS! Glad I got it!
Got this Miter Angle Finder & it sure works well! I had to trim out some wall in the outbuilding & this helped cut the trim pieces. The tool is a combination of plastic & aluminum, & is pretty sturdy & straight forward. Transfer of the angles to Miter Saw was simple & easy, the arms are long enough & they slide extend out to about 14 1/2 inches per side. Just lay the tool on the bed of the miter saw & adjust to the correct angle. It also helped me find the correct angle for a support rafter for some insulation work of an older outbuilding. All in all a very helpful tool. Simple Tool that's Very Effective, Sturdy & Accurate an easy to use. Win Win anyway you look at it.

Clever Idea for a Single-Purpose Tool
The Angle Duplicating tool, made in China for Bora, is a clever idea that can save time for someone installing a lot of mitered trim. It's most obvious use is for floor baseboards and, in some cases, crown molding. Because it measures the needed angle and then automatically divides it in half (when you remove one arm of the tool) there is no math needed and no need to remember the angle (e.g. “44.3 degrees”). Just set your miter saw to align with the tool and cut. Flip it over, re-align to the tool, and cut the mating piece. In theory it's very simple; in use, it takes some practice. There's a lot of sliding the arms, locking the angle, disconnecting the arms (while trying not to change the angle), and re-assembling to set up the next joint. I learned it's best to remove the arm at the top pivot first, then disconnect the bottom pivot. There's less likelihood of disturbing the angle of the remaining arm. The unit is mostly plastic, with brass pivots/screws and aluminum sliders on the arms, so it won't stand up to job-site abuse but will likely survive most DIY projects. Although the unit is generally nicely made I found some rough edges. It's a nice tool, and it reduces the tedium and potential error of measuring angles with a digital protractor, dividing by two and manually setting the miter saw to the correct angle. It's a bit expensive for a single-use tool, but if there's a lot of trim work in a future project it might be worth it. Hopefully it will also reduce the amount of wood putty needed to fill the slight gaps!

Eh....
Bulky and awkward. Best adjectives to describe the Bora Angle Duplicating Miter Tool. I have several angle duplicating tools in my garage and this one is the most awkward. The tool itself is made of durable material that should stand up to daily use for some time. Using it to achieve and transfer inside angles is easy until you take that measurement to your miter saw. Measuring and transferring outside angle is worse. The main issue I have is the tool housing itself is so bulky, when you lay the captured angle for transfer on to the miter, it now becomes awkward. Not only the thickness of the housing but the tightening knob on some transfers, gets in the way. There is a learning curve to this tool as the instructions are vague with tiny pictures. This is a perfect example of an over engineered tool that does not need to be that complicated.

Accurate and easy to use
This is the MITERiX angle duplicator from BORA tools. One of my least favorite things about doing baseboard and crown moulding work is trying to figure out exactly what angle the two walls are intersecting at. Just about none of the walls in my house meet at an exact 90 degree inside/outside corner. They're always off by about one or two degrees. I have a cheap semi-transparent plastic mitre gauge that I used previously to measure the angle and then divided that number in half in order to figure out what angle to set my miter saw at. I've found when doing trim work though that even if I'm off by half a degree the two pieces don't meet up exactly right and I have an ugly gap I have to fill with caulk. Not to mention trying to set my mitre saw to a quarter degree is an exercise in frustration. I usually wind up doing a couple of test cuts with some scrap wood to make sure I get the angle just right. I just used this while installing some crown moulding in my son's new bedroom and this thing works awesome. It's so much easier to just duplicate the angle using the tool and then set my saw to butt up against the tool. I don't have to worry about what the exact angle the outside or inside corner is because I can just slide one arm off the tool after I take the reading and go straight to the saw. Love it. As far as construction goes it feels pretty sturdy. It's mostly plastic with the exception of the "wings" which are plastic with aluminum covers that slide over top. The pivot mechanisms look like they are brass. Folds up and while about 12" long could easily fit in a toolbox or even in your pocket temporarily. It's such a simple design but it's pretty brilliant.

    I used it to install crown molding and to place shelves in a pantry. It worked to my expectations. I like that one side can be removed and the Bora can be used to set the angle for the cut on my power miter box.

    Overall it's a pretty good tool. I have used it once so far to transfer an angle for a corner shelf to my miter saw. The reason I only gave it 3 stars is because it does have some play in the arms thus introducing a possible 2-5 degree error. Also, be careful of sharp edges - I cut my finger inspecting it out of the box. Like I say, it's not bad, but I wonder if there is a better tool out there.

    Angles go from wall to work with minimal effort!
    I own lots of angle-finding tools, this one paid for itself in the first 5 minutes of use! Angles go from wall to work with minimal effort, no bisecting on an angle finder or using a gauge and sawset protractor, no thinking involved period! This should be sold in stores!
