Hi!
Working on wainscot project using Nobex Champion 180 miter saw, picked up on eBay for half the retail price $200.
Found re-assembly directions on web. I then gerry rigged an old saw handle replacing the plastic one & attached wood skids with rubber bottoms to frame. Clamps work good. After 1k cuts, from top side or back of moldings, perfect & still going strong!!! Only problem is getting into a habit of taking away the scrap too fast, compared to letting blade stop on chop saw…. Ouch!

Just goes to show that hand tools are a genuine alternatative to ‘power tool only’ thinking. Nice look to the finished job.

Nice job on the wainscoting. Nice crisp corners, and I like the pattern also. Now, about that saw….... I want it. If you suddenly decide you hate it remember, Christmas is just around the corner. Haha. Nice job on the saw also, it looks great. Thanks for posting.
