    What do people use as their mitre box/block for aluminium tile trim??
    Currently using a small metal one but I'm in the market for something better as it drives me mad.
    I know a few tilers who use a small chop saw which I couldn't get along with when I borrowed it.
    Also used a quansol one once which I thought was very impressive but it's literally like finding a needle in a haystack trying to find somewhere that sells them that's not mega overpriced.
    Thanks

    Quansol! You get what you pay for - like tilers!
    Impressive performance isn't cheap.

    So you can cut 45 mitres bang on every time by eye? Don't tell me you have the strength of a bear ears of a wolf and the speed of a puma too

    Quansol mitre boxes make cutting 45 metal trims easy quick and perfect every time. They used to be 15-20 quid cheaper and only one place on the internet seems to sell them with a premium

    They're not massive, they are very good and I think I paid about £25 for mine years ago...

    Mine needs replacing, but I baulk at paying the best end of £50 for one!
