Using the Langdon Miter Box
I used the newly restored Langdon #16 1/2 Miter box for the first time on a real project over the past few days, and I REALLY like it.
For rapidly cutting small trim pieces to accurate angles quickly and quietly with a minimum of setup, it is my new best friend. It is faster to set up than my power chop-saw, and I have no fear of cutting off a finger in a moment of inattention. Definitely a plus.
This will be a well-used tool, not just an antique curiosity in my shop. Makes me want to restore a larger Millers Falls miter box also for larger pieces of trim.
