Detailed Description

Miter Trimmer

A miter trimmer is a must have for picture framers and anyone seeking the perfect miter joint. Chopsaws are great for cutting stock to consistent angles, but using one to sneak up on the perfect length in half-hair increments can get a bit chancy. That's why picture framers everywhere still have room for this guillotine style trimmer on their benches. Its design dates from the golden age of cast iron, when so many of our favorite hand tools first saw the light of day. Don't be fooled by its rather crude appearance: the miter trimmer is designed to take paper-thin shavings and leave a glass-smooth surface on end grain. Its massive cast iron body and positive, adjustable angle stops hold stock securely at any angle from 45 to 90 degrees. Its thick steel knives are razor sharp and skewed for a shearing action and to hold the stock down during the cut. The blades are driven by a long cast iron handle that gives you tremendous leverage; rack and pinion gears make the cut smooth and controllable. Capacity: 4" thick, 6" wide. Will trim a 1 x 6 at 90 degrees, and a 2 x 4 at 45 degrees. Note: the miter trimmer is not meant to make miter cuts, but only to trim them to final length. Optional top trim attachment allows for cutting a 45 degree bevel (rather than a miter); measuring attachment lets you repeat lengths from 4 to 28 inches with precision.
