Though power miter saws offer awesome power and versatility, they can be expensive.  Sure, you can get a power miter saw for less than $100, but you can get a 45-degree-only plastic miter box for less than $10.  Not one to limit my future functionality, I picked up this miter saw and box combo at the big box for less than $20.

Sturdy enough for the occasional DIYer and weekend warrior, the saw gives you quick angles for four, five, six, eight, and twelve-sided polygons — that’s 45, 36, 30, 22-1/2, and 15 degrees — in addition to your perpendicular cuts.

    I have one and am very impressed with the quality.

    With it I have made sharp accurate 90 and 45 degree cuts in both 10×2 cm wooden panels and square plastic electric conduit. I have even seen one amongst a pro carpenters tools at a jobsite I passed.

    Ok, broken record, but I really prefer the old Miller Falls or Stanley mitre boxes for this kind of thing. The saws are much more rigid for thicker material being cut. If you shop around, you can find one for a similar price.
