Perfect for cutting small pieces, mouldings, trims, and anything too big for scissors and too small for a saw. The shears have a jaw with right and left 45° fences, and incised markings for 60°, 75°, 90°, 105°, and 120°.
I got my mitre shears before Freedom Miniatures existed, but they were one of the best investments I ever made. They are identical to the ones shown on the Freedom Miniatures site. Making straight or angle cuts on stripwood is as easy using scissors. I use the little swivel safety thing (easy to engage and disengage) after every cut so I don't lose any fingers. I think these shears are a must-have tool.
