Re:Stainless steel miter box - 2010/02/06 21:43 Deniese,

I clicked on the website and looked at the thing. I could not really get a good look at it but it appeared to be rather flimsy. Stainless steel would be a good material I believe but if the thickness of the box is like sheet metal I would not be surprised by poor results. $18.00 for a good sturdy tool made of stainless steel? I would be very skeptical of that. If I were you I believe I'd voice my dissapointment to the maker or whoever you bought it from and ask for a refund. Wood might wear out sooner but it would do a better job IMHO. Me? I do it cave man style. When I am cutting my just demolded loafs of soap into bars I scribe a line across the loafwith a dental tool and then slice with a very thin Chinese style cleaver. I then weigh the bar and try to have them come in at about 5.6, 5.8 ounces. This allows for the shrinkage and water loss in the air curing. I try to wind up with no less than a 5 ounce bar. I adjust the thicknes of my cut as I cut and weigh as I go along. That's just the way I do it. Yes it takes a while but I like the way my product looks after all is done.
