More Information

Q: Why was the Miter Divider developed?
A: The Miter Divider was developed to offer a tool that simplifies miter cuts. By using the Miter Divider you will save time, money, and reduce wasted material.

Q: What does the Miter Divider do?
A: The Miter Divider measures and divides any angle achieving an accurate fitting miter joint without using math or calculations.

Q: What is a Miter Joint?
A: A miter joint is the most common joint between two pieces of material that meet at an angle, in which each piece of the butting surface is cut into two equal halves.

Q: Who can use the Miter Divider?
A: Homeowners, Remodelers, Contractors, Deck Builders, Metalworkers, Finish Carpenters, Tile/marble installers, and Framers (anyone who needs to measure and divide an angle).

Q: What is the Small Angle Finder tool used for?
A: The Small Angle Finder was developed for times when you are faced with measuring an angle that is located too close to a door or an obstacle that would prevent you from using the full-size Miter Divider.

Q: Why should I use the Miter Divider?
A: The purpose of the Miter Divider is to provide an accurate fitting miter joint.

Even if you can figure out an angle without using the Miter Divider, odds are you will be measuring an object that is not square or level such as a wall, a floor, deck, picture frames, etc. which can cause your calculations to be off resulting in wasted time, and materials.

The Miter Divider is just the tool to take away the frustration and guesswork of finding an accurate fitting miter joint each and every time.

Q: How will I measure an angle? How do I divide a miter? What degree will it be?
A: Who cares! Just cut on the line created by your Miter Divider!

Step 1 - Measure the angle.
 
Step 2 - Mark the angle.

- Place the Miter Divider against the inside or outside corner you want to match.

- Adjust the angle by moving the arms until each arm is flush against the surface.

This process sets the angle onto your Miter Divider. The angle will be held in place by friction. If the joint becomes loose, lightly tighten the nut.

Note: if your corner is too shallow to measure using the Miter Divider, use the Small Angle Tool.

 

- Transfer the measured angle to a piece of scrap lumber, being careful not to change the angle between the arms.

- The bottom lip of the Miter Divider should line up with and overlap the factory - cut edge of the scrap lumber.

- Trace a line along the inside edge of the Miter Divider starting at point A, to B ending at point C.

 


Step 3 - Mark the first arc.
 
Step 4 - Mark the second arc.

- Place the tip of your pencil into one of the holes along one arm of the Miter Divider.

- Use the attached guide to draw an arc between the two arms.

 

- Place the tip of your pencil in the corresponding hole in the other attached guide and draw another arc making sure both arcs intersect.


Step 5 - Mark the cut line / dividing the miter.
 
Step 6 - Review your pattern.

Use the flat edge of the Miter Divider to draw a straight line from the intersection of the two arcs to the corner of the two sides. Continue the line beyond the corner, out to the edge of the lumber.

 

Your scrap lumber should now have a pattern like the one shown here.


Step 7 - Cut the scrap piece
 
Step 8 - Test the fit

Place your scrap lumber as shown in the picture above and set your saw angle. Cut the scrap lumber along the drawn line.

Note: This is the saw angle you will use to cut your final trim pieces, but first, test the fit by cutting the scrap lumber.

 

Flip one of the two cut pieces of scrap lumber over and lay the pieces against eh corner you measured in step one to be sure they match.


Step 9 - Cut the first trim piece.
 
Step 10 - Set up the second cut.

Position the trim lumber on the saw and cut, using the angle set in step 7.

 

Using the piece of scrap lumber you flipped over in step 8, set your saw for the second cut of the trim piece.


Step 11 - Cut second trim piece
 
Step 12 - Fit trim pieces

Position the trim lumber on the saw and cut, using the angle set in step 10.

 

Your Done!



How To Use Your Small Angle Tool


Measure the Angle

- Place the Small Angle Tool against the inside or outside corner you want to match.

Note: Shorten one arm if needed by sliding the nut in the slot.

- Adjust the angle by moving the arms until each arm is flush against the surface.

- Lock the nut to hold the angle. This sets the angle you need to match onto your Small Angle Tool.

 

 

Lay the Small Angle Tool on the outside of the full-size Miter Divider. Align one arm of the Small Angle Tool with one arm of the full-size Miter Divider and hold firmly in place. Rotate the other arm of the full-size Miter Divider to match the angle of the Small Angle Tool. Continue by marking the angle onto a piece of scrap lumber, as shown in the instructions
