Does anyone here use a Miller Falls 110 Miter Box? Is it any good? The mechanism seems very similar to the miter box I already have (an orange no name thing) and I am not overly impressed with it. Does yours work well? Or would you recommend looking elsewhere? Thanks.

I HIGHLY recommend the inclusion of photo(s) in a post such as yours.

This is a visual medium to begin with, and everyone likes tool porn, but more importantly, you’re much more likely to get a response if people can see what you’re referring to.

I have literally dozens of miter boxes, (mostly Stanley, with a few Langdon-Acmes) but I have no idea what a MF 110 looks like.

Here is a link to the one I’m looking at. Not sure what’s up with the saw. Looks almost like the handle is upside down.

Looks like a variant of the Stanley 150.

+1 to what Wayne said.

never saw one before, but as CL810 has observed, it’s highly reminiscent of the Stanley 150.
A lot of guys like that one because you can use the maximum amount of the toothed area of the saw.
Typical miter boxes with two uprights limit the amount of travel and wear the same teeth in a smaller area.

As to the upside down saw—I think what we’re seeing is a saw with a tooth guard in place—and someone has inserted it upside down into the box

Have your say...
