I think I know the answer to this, but I have to ask - does anyone know of and can they recommend a mini mitre saw ?
I'm going to need to cut a load of mitres in some aluminium strip (2mm x 20mm) and will be doing this in a very smart office.
I could lug my mitre saw in, but its a bit big and heavy.
I'm wondering if there is some little 75-100mm bladed jobbie that is accurate enough, small and light - anyone know of such a thing ?
There are a couple on Amazon - anyone got any experience ?

Yes, I know I could cut them by hand with a Faithful (or whatever) sliding saw but I don't want to....

I have experience of other Proxxon tools and have found them to be a bit pricey but excellent build quality. I would suspect that saw will no different in that regard.
They make a mini table saw too, that combine with a mitre gauge would do a good job and probably be more useful in the future too.

Considering the picture for the Proxxon only shows pieces of metal, I think it will be ok :wink:

Hmmmm, 85 watts? Just wondering why my 8in (216mm) saw requires 1600 watts, now.

Hmm.Seemingly the answer is that my arm produces more than 85 watts, so I either man up and lug my mitre saw in or I get a nobex or whatever and do it by hand.
I had kind of assumed that there would be a quality saw that would be light, powerful and accurate. I also assume that I should know the numbers that will come up in tomorrows lottery.
Clearly I am not as wise as I thought..
