    Small miter box for model making

    Found this when cleaning up the shop. It was used for model airplane work but
    is quite adaptable to any model making using wood for the material.
    Spring loaded nylon wheels guide the saw.
    I think it was built from plans form Woodsmith or Shopnotes but I don't know which issue.

    Cheers, JR

    JR,

    This is a beautifully made small miter box with very clear straight-grained lumber.

    Glad you found it again.

    Regards, Paul
