The wood miter makes fast angle cuts in wood quarter round, eliminating the need for a chop saw. The stout 2 ½" long high carbon steel blade is strong enough and sharp enough to shear cut wood materials cleanly. The table includes a gauge for cutting straight, 22.5°, or 45° angles. The 22.5° angle gauge is used for making a "soft corner" shape, while the 45° angle is used to make square corners. The extra-long vinyl-coated handles provide adequate leverage for cutting. Blade is replaceable (No. 856).
