Nobex Miter Saws
Nobex Miter Boxes & Saws, & Spare Blades

Plano Systems AB of Sweden manufacture the Nobex brand of high-precision mitre boxes for the discerning craftsman. In a world of chop-saws, it is reassuring to know that some people still value precision over speed. The Nobex mitre saws are finely made precision tools that will facilitate the most demanding mitre work. The Nobex Champion 180 is the largest model and is the best all around miter box for the cabinetmaker's and joiner's shop. The Nobex Promaster miter box with the picture framing attachment is the optimal system for picture framing work. With the Nobex Promaster, framers can achieve fast, first class results, without investing in expensive equipment. The Nobex Promaster is of course a good all around miter box as well, but its capacity is somewhat less than that of the Nobex Champion miter box. Nobex also offers a broad line of extra blades to cover just about every applications. At The Best Things, we stock the full line of Nobex blades for both the Proman and Champion miter boxes.

Please see the measuring tool section for the Nobex folding squares and Multifix Miter Gauge.

The Nobex Champion 180 is the largest Nobex miter box and offers the most versatility for general shop use. The Japanese blade by Ikeda is made from the finest Swedish steel, and offers the smoothest cuts while still cutting very aggresively. The standard blades cut quite smoothly, but not quite as smoothly as the Ikeda blade, and not nearly as aggressively.
