This tool is designed for mitering, beveling and squaring ends of wood. Unlike the mitre box saw which leaves a rough surface, the mitre trimmer cuts with razor sharp knives to shear off the wood for a smooth finish cut.
The two gauges, left and right, can be adjusted and locked instantly to any angle from 45° to 90°. Positive pin stops are located at 45° and 90°. Any angle between can be instantly set with thumb screws.
All cuts on the trimmer must be made at or near the end of mouldings. Cut-off can be sawed at 45°, slightly over-length.
Softwood moulding and trim of small stock can be sawed off square, rough mitered with a chop cut and trimmed with one or two shaving slices.
Hardwoods must be sawed at 45°, then trimmed. The harder the wood, the thinner the trim cut. In off-Square joinery, paper thin corrective cuts are made quickly and easily.
The width of workpieces depend on their thickness. The following is possible (example):
Square cuts: 140 mm wide and 20 mm thick (5-1/2 in. x 3/4 in.), 125 mm wide and 30 mm thick (5 in. x 1-1/4 in.), 100 mm wide and 40 mm thick (4 in. x 1-1/2 in.), square stock 76 x 76 mm (3 in. x 3 in.)
Mitre cuts: 100 mm wide and 20 mm thick (4 in. x 3/4 in.), 80 mm wide and 40 mm thick (3 in. x 1/2 in.), square stock 60 x 60 mm (2-3/8 in. x 2-3/8 in.)
Ideal for end grain chamfering
