      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Miter box helper

2 posts in this topic

Posted

If any of you have a mini miter box like I do. Here are a couple ideas to help. I didn't like the fact if I was cutting long narrow pieces of styrene they would wiggle back and forth with my blade. So I just slapped down some double sided sticky tape and fixed it's wagon good. The next thing I did was took my ruler and lined it up with the center line. Then with a black fine felt tip marker i marked off the milimeters in both directions. That way I can add or subtract the needed mm. depending on which way my 45° cut is going. Some of you may of figured these tricks out yourself. But since I have used so many of the 2,183 tips I thought I should finally add something

I too have had the wriggles while trying to cut narrow pieces with my mitre box. The 2 sided tape is one of those too easy tricks that makes me wonder why I couldn't have thought of it.
