How to use a magic mitre box
A magic mitre box is a tool that enables you to match the mitred angle of your skirting or coving to the exact angle of the wall whether that be an internal or external corner.
The magic mitre box is a very clever tool enabling you to cut precise angles from 1 degree to 210 degrees.
Step 1 - Use template
Use the template to copy the exact angle of the walls on which you plan to fit coving or skirting.
Hold the template against the corner you want to measure.
Adjust the two sides of the tool so they lay flat against the wall. Lock the template in position by turning the centre screw clockwise
Step 2 - Attach template
Fix the template onto one of the pivoting workpiece holders.
Adjust the arms of the Magic Mitre by pushing the centre console forwards or backwards until the arms are set at the same angle as the angle measuring template.
When the template engages the second pivoting workpiece holder, the magic mitre is set at the correct angle.
Step 3 - Lock workpiece holders
Lock the centre console in position by turning the locking nut clockwise.
Step 4 - Remove template and make cut
Remove the template, and you are ready to cut a perfect mitre to match the exact angle of your wall.
