Neat Mitre cuts on Kitchen Trim

Postby OdgeUK » Tue Jun 09, 2020 8:15 am

Hi All

I'm struggling to get a clean cut for the 45 degree joins on my Kitchen Trim / Edging.

I borrowed a hand / manual mitre saw, but the results have been quite poor.


My friends own electric Chop Saws but all say that they are too heavy duty for this kind of job and are mainly used for roughly chopping timber. Would it be wise for me just to borrow one of these, and then buy a compatible blade with lots of fine teeth on it? Or do I need a smaller electric Mitre Saw, specifically for this kind of thing? Can anyone recommend a model that won't break the bank please? I'm not sure when I'm likely to use it again, so not keen on spending more than £50-60

Thanks in advance.
