The cut is very clean and accurate.
Peter Labarba
First off, it doesn't cut true (the 90 degrees setting isn't a true 90, the 45 isn't really 45 and so on).
Grant
When I iponed the box, one of the black plastic pieces that holds the saw in place was broken.

If your needs are limited to the occasional baseboard replacement, science project, or picture frame, this tool will do the job extremely well. We tend to work on home remodeling projects as a family, and this would be a very good tool for use by adolescents, or others intimidated by power saws. The cam hold downs do an excellent job of keeping little fingers away from the business end.
I've used three similar manual tools with frame saws made by other manufacturers. This one worked very well and performs nearly as well as a European version at about 1/16 the price. Assembly is pretty easy with most of the critical components pre-assembled. It took us about 15 minutes. The core of the device is "protractor head" of light alloy material and the rest of the frame is steel and what seems to be a filled plastic material; durable but not "bomb proof".
The cut is very clean and accurate. We did a couple of test cuts on fir molding then flipped the joints back and forth to test for accuracy and it was "dead on" at 90 and 45 degrees. We didn't try the other angles as my spouse wants our remodeling project done in her lifetime. It is pretty light weight and I would recommend attaching the saw to a board. We drilled some holes into the top of the Workmate and attached the saw with some bolts and wing nuts. (Our Workmate has numerous holes for attaching drill presses, bench top saws, etc.) The cam locks do a very good job of holding the work fast; however our neighbor couldn't figure them out. It's worth the few minutes to figure it out - the cut is much cleaner with a very narrow kerf. The saw also has a length stop for repeat cuts, but almost all of our cuts exceeded the capacity.
We felt there are three drawbacks to the saw.

I'm not sure what people expect from a miter box and saw costing less than fifty bucks. I've done several projects on it, and it's great. I have put away my power miter saws and scarcely miss them.

Has anyone priced a *good* miter box? Google Nobex for a starting point.

This saw is plenty accurate for furniture and cabinet work. Picture frames and other extremely finicky miter work, maybe not. Price some picture-framing tools and tell me how anyone thinks they can get going in that world for fifty bucks!

There are a few tricks to succeeding with this saw. Actually, they are more like common sense to me, but here we go.

Mark your work accurately and learn to saw to your mark. No tool will do that for you.

Tension the blade using the wing nut before starting. You are also supposed to un-tension it when you're done, but I always forget.

Don't let the saw teeth touch any metal or concrete.

Clamp the feet to your bench, or screw them to a board and clamp that, or at least use a bench hook.

Clamp the work to the fence. I use an Irwin Quick-Clamp instead of the cam-pins.

Take it EASY. The saw does the work. A one-star reviewer here mentioned that the plastic saw guides are subject to significant stresses when he is using the saw. That is called doing it wrong. The saw glides on the guides and cruises through the wood.

Lastly, this is a hand tool. Instead of using a torrent of cheap electricity or gas to power a big motor through the work with brute force and ignorance to spare, you're using your own very finite muscle power guided by that squishy organ between your ears. Body mechanics are important. Think smooth and easy. If you're trying too hard, you're doing it wrong.

First...this is a tolerable saw. The cuts in typical molding (pine, birch, maple) are clean and accurate. There are preset cut angles that you must use (no moving it 1 degree). If you need a saw that can cut compound angles, this is not it. What this tool can do is give you much better and more accurate cuts than a cheapie miter box. With any saw, you need a sharp blade and finding a Stanley blade is impossible. Lee Valley stocks 22" blades in 12tpi, 18tpi, 24tpi and 32tpi. You can find them online [...] or you can call them at (800) 513-7885. They also sell more expensive miter boxes if you wish to explore that idea. This Stanley miter unit works fine for me as long as I keep a good blade in it.

I have been using this saw primarily for cutting quarter round after installing a hardwood floor. The saw works great and the cuts are very accurate. Unfortunately, I also used it to make some cuts on some old subflooring that had floor leveling compound on it. The box said that the blade was replaceable, so I didn't think there would be a problem finding one. Now the blade is very dull and I can't find a replacement blade anywhere, so far, not even online.

I am a 56 year old female, who loves to watch DIY programs. However I am deathly afraid of power saws. I recently decided to install wainscotting and crown moulding in my kitchen. My Stanley yellow miter box, ran out of steam about 1/2 way into the project. The saw started sticking and the box was shreading.

so I ordered the Stanley Contractor Grade Clamping Miter Box.I Love, Love Love it!!. The saw is heavy duty and cuts right through the MDF like cheese ( I haven't had a chance to try it on real wood). The system is easy to assemble,and easy to maneuver. The angles are easy to set and pretty accurate. The clamps do a great job at holding the wood in place. Though I did find a problem when cutting short pieces. The groves aren't placed strategically enough to hold the smaller pieces. So I end up trying to hold/stabilize the piece with one hand and sawing with the other hand. Also It would be nice to have more than just 2 clamps for added stability.

But overall, I really enjoy using it.Though I'm an amateur at such things I feel like a professional using this tool.
