not fit for purpose
Not satisfied with this product, handle broke first time I used it, impossible to hold two pieces of wood at the same time and also found wood was not joined at right angles. After putting a set square on the clamp I discovered it was out of square. Would not recommended this product.
Clamp was returned to the store and was given a full refund, so not all bad.

This product does not work very well because it is almost impossible to keep two pieces of wood immobile while tightening the clamp. It really needs two vices set at right angles for this to work properly. My two mitre clamps have been sent to the recycling bin.

Handle broke off the very first time I used it to do an edge join on 2 600mm long bits of wood - hardly a demanding application
Plastic handle immediately cracked down the length and came off of the screw drive, then spent 10 minutes trying to get the thing off my workpiece.
Not sure who designed this, or what they were thinking when they did, but I wouldn't bother with it...

Good product to use.
Bought 4 of these to set out drawers for the shed. What can you say provided the cuts are accurate these give you the right angle every time. Saved loads of time.
The only downside are the handles, they really do let the product down, they are plastic whilst the rest of the mitre is cast alloy, had to take 1 back for replacement.
