Re: Looking for a better Miter Box—Help Please

Bill,

 

I have a metal miter box (don’t know the manufacturer) I bought at a show with a small saw.  It has wide slots and using a razor saw did give too much wobble.  What I did was use some brass shim stock along side the blade in the slot and it worked well enough for several cuts.  If you have some brass or other shim stock you might want to see which thickness would work for you in your box.

I am looking for a better Miter Box. The one I have allows the blade to wobble too much when trying to line up the cut. I found the attached on Micro Mark and it looks like the slits for the saw are pretty narrow. Can anyone comment on this tool or have a good suggestion.
