The miter box is pretty much as received except for freeing up the rear guide rollers…

The #7 I’ll probably do more to it at some point but for now I’ll take a break…

I do think I overpaid for the #7 but except for the nickle on the lever cap there were no major problems so I bought it…

But all in all I’m happy.

That’s a fairly recent #7, but it will still make a fine user.

The #7 is a type 19, The miter box has a 26” 12pt blade…

I dont know why but I like the style of the y frog bed, keeping in mind its based on nothing, I just like the look of it apparently…

Hi LukieB the miter box is going to get a good cleaning, other than that the blade is very sharp and appears to be dead straight…

I found them on Craigs List, funny thing is I tell these people that I only contacted them because they had a phone number otherwise I wouldent even bother…

The plane was 2 miles away and the miter box was less than an hour round trip and we talked for a bit.

Have your say...
