    Thumbs up chrismas diy, should i? shouldn't i?

    ........ ok got loads on the go at the minute getting the house finished for christmas the only thing im undecided about is the skirting boards, PROBLEM my mitre saw will not cut them as they are too large & it will cost me in the region of £100 for a mitre saw that will cut them.
    the room is 7mx4m, how much will it cost roughly to get some one reasonably good to fit them??
    is it worth buying a new saw & DIY??
    what do you's think?

    Are you talking about the mitres for when the boards turn a corner? What is it about your current saw that won't do it?

    What about a circular saw with a 45 degree option then? Half the price of a mitre saw and will do the job no sweat.

    i assume then that your saw does not slide? Can't you borrow a larger saw from a friend? If you were closer I'd lend you mine

    Why not make a one up your self. Will take 20min of your time and free. Cut 2 bits of wood with the mitre in them and nail them to a bit wide enough for your 170mm board to sit in.
