The old miter was just ridiculously sloppy, so I got a new 'Zona' miter.

The old one was purchased in 1978, so it lived a useful life.

Slight design change.

Anxious to get much cleaner cuts.

Hi Wes  :wave:


You won't loose that ^^ easily !  :shocked:  :P


I got mine before the mandatory Hi-Viz. 'Bench & Safety' Regs. came in during 1666 ...  ;)





... I just need my Ray-Bans  :cool:  whilst modding those '60s Strontium-90 pigmented, plastic tank-cars !  :shades:

And YES ! ... I do VOLUNTARILY use a (sharp 'pro' bladed) Junior Hacksaw !!  :java::mex:


:moose: :dt:

I like your version because it will allow the use of a thicker bladed saw.

I have been making mine.
 
The last one finally got cut in half, so had to make a new one.

It was getting a bit sloppy as I use scrap wood.

Hi Wes  :wave:


I do too ...  :old dude:

... until I have a really, really, really small bit of 'Plastruct'(TM) to cut !  :f:

When I find that my razor-saw 'back' does not fit in the deep slot !!  :f: :f:


I think I could tolerate a couple of different sizes of Miter-Box ...  :cool:

... I like your version.  :P





A couple of non-slip ^^ rubber-pads, 1 on each end of the Miter-Box ...  L:

... are a GREAT addition, for using on my laminate covered usual working area.


They were just stuck on, with STRONG double-sided self-adhesive tape.  :)
