" Used it for putting up coving - very useful makes it 10 times easier.
It was more robust than I thought it might be, plastic was thicker than some of the other reviews suggest. "

" For me, the main selling point of this mitre box is the fact it has a clamping system.
It's not a cheap mitre box by any stretch of the imagination, but it is certainly cheaper than buying a mitre saw!
I used my mitre box with hand and power saws, all of which had no problems helping me to achieve the angled cuts I required. "

" 30 years of hobby woodworking and I find the best mitre box I've ever used. The small pegs that clamp wood sections to the box are excellent, as they are oval shaped they grip event the tiniest of sections. Good solid product which can clamp to a workmate in seconds. "

" Used this Mitre box when fitting a very ornate fibrous plaster coving.I found it to be very adaptable and perfect for the job. I will be using it for many more tasks. I am sure that it will perform just as well with architrave, skirting boards and dado rail. it is able to be screwed down to you workbench and as so it gives a very secure working platform. The mitre box was able to allow me to cut some very awkward corners and after fiting over 300 mtrs of plaster coving it is still as good as new. I reckon that I could use it time and time again. "

Did the job....
18 Jun 2012
By
, Bristol
" Pros - 22.5 was very useful when doing my laminate edging.
You can lock the item in place quite well.
Slightly wider than another one I have.
Cons - If not careful you could damage your object by locking it in to tight.
One of my groves has got smaller so hard to get the saw in this slot now...

" Had several issues with this when cutting picture rail. The locking system is not perfect. some of the holes are either just too far or just too close to get a good clamp. Also because its so light the thing was sliding about while i was sawing which lead to uneven cuts. "

" It's fairly accurate if you are careful. Despite what other reviews said, I found the cam clamping system pretty useless. The construction of it is too flimsy and it can easily bend and twist - not good for a mitre box.
Shame, because at the price I expected better. Have the once "good quality" Stanley "dumbed down" their tools? I suspect so......

DIY mitre block
1 Dec 2014
By
, London
" I bought this for fitting the edging to some laminate flooring. It worked very well. Got the job done no problem but it seems a bit flimsy. Not sure how it would stand up to use with heavier materials. I bought a 10" tenon saw to use with it. Don't make the same mistake. This block is very wide and on a 45 degree cut the saw just spans the block. "

could be better
23 Oct 2014
By
, gillingham
" this would be a much better product if it was a bit deeper so you can cut 4" skirting upright against the side rather than having to lay the skirting down flat. Also prefer metal or wood to give more resistance to the saw cutting into the grooves and destroying the accuracy of future cuts. Perhaps it's me being ham fisted. "

Flimsy
1 Oct 2012
By
, Solihull
" The block looks nice and solid in the advertising - but in reality, the plastic is hollow. The result is that the block will flex when you put any pressure in it.
I bought it to cut skirting board (4") and that was too tall to fit into the block - so I had to cut the first couple of cm using just one of the slots until I had sawn far enough to get the saw into the slots on both sides of the block. It also meant that the 'gripping pins' could not work properly.
Although there are two gripping pins, often you can only use one - unless you are planning to waste 10cm of timber.
