depending on your chop saw you will use for mitres, remember some extrusion's might not fit in the throat of your saw. just mentioning as i remember many years ago before slimline extrusions and the like came about we bought a pile of the stuff in to do our own boxes and our chop saw throat would take the extrusion. :-? :lol1:

If you have a compound mitre saw then there shouldn't be to much of a problem Graham, I've got a relatively cheap one but it cuts up to about 320mm think the blade cost about half what the saw cost lol

Bit of fiddleing about to get it to cut a true 45 degree angle over a longer length but once set up no problems at all.

Martin, I have had issues in past with finding the real 45 degree angle on the larger hop saws, but as as you say once set up, I have made a template 45 degree set square, but it can drift on occasions.
