Miter Saw Guides, Multi-Angle Saw Guides

The Saw Guide is an auxiliary tool to facilitate the accurate use of handsaws in woodwork. With the help of a Saw Guide, accurate use of a hand saw is as easy as the use of scissors or a knife to cut paper. You may think that sawing straight is very difficult and that only professionals can do it, but if you used one of these Saw Guides, you could make cuts just as precise as professional carpenters and cabinetmakers do. With this guide, you could easily saw straight cuts to make anything from a picture frame to practical and useful furniture of your own.

Precision Miter Saw Guide (basic model) - with Saw
Precision Miter Saw Guide (basic model) - with Saw
With this basic model of the Miter Cut Guide listed above, one can precisely cut 90 degree, and 45 degree angles for miter joints. It adapts equally well for right- and left-handed people, as one simply mounts the guide assembly on the appropriate end of the base plate.

A disadvantage compared to the stepless model mentioned above is that one must take the guide apart to set the cut, but this only takes a minute or two.
An advantage over the stepless version is that this one is so simple to use, especially when one has a number of identical cuts to make.

This miter guide is delivered with a saw, includes an allen wrench for assembly and two guide fences, one for normal work and a second for longer cuts. The saw has a bent pistol grip made of soft plastic, the blade is 265mm long.
