This is a light to medium duty saw, but with care can handle some fairly heavy work.
J. A. Selmer Sr.
The saw does not have enough depth for large pieces, so keep this in mind, if you are cutting large crown moulding, or shoe moulding.
Steven Blunt
One of the 2 identical saw guides was broken in half, again rendering their product useless.

One can buy a basic 7.5" electric chop saw for less than $200. If one is lucky, it might handle a 2 x 4 and cut with some degree of precision The Empire Precision Miter Box is an affordable, versatile, human-powered alternative. It's precise enough for expensive picture framing material and adaptable enough to handle 2 x 6 boards (given properly-improvised support for the material being cut). Die-cast metal construction in this age of plastics is a definite plus. This is an excellent product at a fair and reasonable price.

A very good saw for the money. It works well for what I need,accurate cuts,and smooth cuts, even in metal. This is a light to medium duty saw, but with care can handle some fairly heavy work. The frame for work holding could afford to be a little stronger, but is plenty for my picture frame work (hobby). If I did a lot of work or larger heavier work I would go to a larger saw possibly even a powered saw.
I would like some info on replacement blades.

I have used this saw for several years and it is hands-down the best in class for bench-top miter saws. Great quality, accuracy and dependability. A good buy and a must-have if you need to make accurate miter cuts quickly and easily.

The first Empire Level 36191N Miter Box arrived with a small plastic piece, located between the upper saw guide and the lower blade guide on one of the two mounts fitting over the guide posts, broken. The blade was also scuffed and bent where this plastic piece sat inside the box. Amazon immediately shipped another and paid to return the broken one. Sadly, the second miter box was also broken in virtually the same manner.

The problem seems related to how the merchandise is packed inside the product display box by the manufacturer. There is no packing material inside that box, leaving the contents free to move around unrestrained. Further, the heavier guide post assembly sits inside the box directly beneath the plastic piece broken in both shipments. Apparently, as that guide post assembly shifts around during handling, it repeatedly strikes and eventually breaks the plastic piece located just above. The saw assembly either needs to be well padded or separated in some manner (cardboard, etc) from the rest of the box contents.

In my case, I was able to scrounge the two unbroken mounts from the two miter boxes still in my possession to assemble a single working miter box. Amazon will simply receive a return with two broken pieces instead of the one initially reported. Since these two plastic pieces sit between, and are somewhat protected by, the guide posts while sawing, they're unlikely to break during normal use. However, knowing they certainly can break, I would handle them fairly gently while the saw is removed to change blades or whatever.

Beyond that, the miter box itself (made in Taiwan) is decent enough. The base is made of diecast metal, with much of the rest also metals.

The Empire Level 36191N appears to be a solid, technically reliable and fairly-priced miter box. While putting it together, it became obvious that 1 of the 2 identical saw guides was broken in half, rendering the tool useless. The Amazon shipping box had been loosely packed so I added quite a bit of my own packing material when returning the tool. I went back to a local home improvement store & looked closely at all of their miter boxes. A Stanley model looked similar in design & price, but taking Amazon customer reviews seriously I avoided the Stanley model, and ordered another Empire 36191N from Amazon, reasoning "Aww, the broken one was just an anomaly. Won't happen again."

The 2nd one arrived today, and was again quite loosely packed with brown paper. The Empire box also had a tear on it, and some of the plastic bags inside were torn. I immediately examined the saw and its attached parts, and guess what? One of the 2 identical saw guides was broken in half, again rendering their product useless. This is extremely frustrating & time-consuming! I'll re-pack the Empire Level 36191N for return to Amazon, and will responsibly add my own packing material to protect the contents. Once that's done, I'm heading out to the local home improvement warehouse to find a effective, workable model of miter box & saw.

I bought this to replace a 10 year old Hempe miter that has had a lot of use. It works fine, the only problem so far is that the aluminum bed plate is painted a flat black and the raised numbers were hard to see. I ran a fine sandpaper over them and now they are visible.
The Hempe was a better tool, a little more rugged and capable of compound cuts. But I paid over $80 for it on sale 10 years ago. For the price this is a good deal.Recommended.

I recently purchased this miter to work on cutting and joining 4" wood posts for a project that I had in mind. I opted for a manual miter saw rather than a powered one because from my experience power tools under $100 aren't that great and I didn't want to spend $200+ for a professional grade tool for my small project.

So far the miter box worked great and if you don't mind having to work a little bit it's a great value at it's $50 price tag. The construction is pretty sturdy and with a little care you can see this tool lasting you a long long time.
