Me either. It doesn't appear to be home made although it wouldn't be too hard to make one. Is there a brand on it?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Pretty neat. I would make a separate one for each angle I wanted tho, be tricky making an adjustable one accurate all of the time. I think the brand name is Made In China.

It does have that Makita Cyan color. Might be handy for construction work, where there's some pretty loosy goosie joinery where an off-angle cut is usually fixed by driving another nail. It would also take more time to set up than a miter saw. Oh well, people enjoy inventing fixes when there's not really a problem. But given some of the third world videos posted her of inventive woodworkers, I see something like this will be used somewhere.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Here is an example . I would use angle iron myself. I may even build something similar.

Tom, "not really a problem" is a really relative concept. Those of us living in the third world often have to resort to inventiveness, either because the real stuff is unavailable (less commom nowadays), or because it is unaffordable (more common nowadays).

Yeah, that unaffordable part especially, that one applies to a bunch of us. Real stuff unavailable tho, even when the real stuff is available, loads of time is is not quite what I want, or won't quite do what I need. So, stuff like this, I'd just make my own from the git go. Then I am a lot more at ease making changes than I would be with a store bought version. Also don't hesitate if it needs a major redo, and dump the first one. One thing I would do tho, if I made the video version, I would mark those angle pieces will all the info on them I could think of, then drill holes in them, run a cord thru, and hang them with the jig.
