Generously Donated by Charlie Reynolds -

The Trimmer has TWO VERY SHARP BLADES! Please don't pick it up by the blades...

FEATURES: For tight smooth precision mitering, a miter trimmer can't be beat.

The G1690 Miter Trimmer makes incredible glass smooth cuts.

The cast-iron body and razor sharp, high carbon tool steel blades, this trimmer can handle trimming picture frames, door frames, molding, and more.

For absolutely clean accurate miters, first make a rough cut with a saw, then finish up with a trimmer. Trim thin shavings like a plane.

The miter trimmer has two angle presets at 45° and 90°.
