    I’d never heard of them til @r-ice bought something a week or so ago at Atlas in Toronto and announced such here on the forum. Interesting little manufacturer of unique tools. Do you have much of their stuff Dirty? Anything you endorse?

    No I don’t have anything but need some of the miter clamps. I have looked before but they have never been a Hawaii friendly shipper. I checked tonight and see they have learned how it’s done and will get a set of miter clamps and the plier to go with them and the collins foot.

    Good. Sounds like you’d be able to use them. Let us know what you think Dirty if you get them. I am interested for myself as well. I have to do a bunch of miters at some point and I can see how they could be handy for connecting miters nice and flush/straight.

    That’s a really cool looking system. Looks like it makes some super tight joints that will last. If you get one Dirty let us know how it works for you. I have the Collins coping foot for my jigsaw but that’s the only thing of theirs I have.

    i really like their mitre clamps and they work well, i believe in the system so i bought it. I first saw them on instagram and someone else was using them, i was impressed. I am debating on the collins foot right now for the coping to see if it will work in my set up.

    Do you have any pics of the miter clamps in action? I’ve wondered how well those work. Which jigsaw do you have? I love the coping foot that I have.

    Looks like a really cool system. I like the chop saw fence that’s micro-adjustable.

    I suppose it wouldn’t be too hard to make a micro adjustable fence for a miter saw either. A couple set screws and you could probably accomplish the same thing. That is a cool setup though.

    Are you nuts Dirty? Heck No. I think a jig like that will give you top quality results and help prevent any seasonal movement and keep your miter joints tight.

    They make good tools I have their tread template that works great. I will however stick with the clamp nails that I use. I bet you they are a stronger and better joint.

    You may can see on their site that the mitertite has been replaced by the Edge-Pocket

    I know you and I don’t do much stain grade but it looks like it would be great to have if it comes up.

    I was looking at the Edge Pocket the other day on Collins’ website. It looks like a slick system.

    It’s been years since I’ve had call to do stain grade trim work. Pretty much everything I get a call for now is MDF which must be the same for you guys. If I had a big stain grade job I think I would definitely consider this system though.

    It would be perfect for stain grade. Sure could of used it a lot in the past.
