Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. I looked at a couple of other tilt-base trimmers but I think that given the accuracy needed and difficulty of maintaining a right angle to the front edge with a trimmer when the body is set to 45 deg. to the base, I think I've narrowed my choice down to the Virutex trimmer. Now to get one in Canada- apparently Virutex isn't CSA approved (government safety regulations), so the one company advertising their products can't import their power tools. I've gone to New York (on the internet that is) to the US distributor to get one- will let you know how it works out.
