I’m doing a large install with PVC Trunking I had a Magnusson Mitre block but it’s not that great with a large hacksaw.

Does anyone have any recommendations on what to use and a decent saw?

Manufactured bends, then you can be as hacky as you like…..

I’ve got one of those tin snip type tools with a mitre plate. Leaves a clean edge, not all burred up that needs filed smooth.

Not a fan of the bends. They are okay in some places but I want to make this as neat as possible.

If your wall is in any was shonky, even the slightest shonkiness, and mitred corners will be a pig unless you use CA glue and activator spray, which to be frank is a pain in the small donkey.

I know it’s not robust enough. But I at least want it to look good. I will be filling in and around with caulk. I’m just after some tools etc to make the job that much easier.

What type of installation as well

Is this something surface in pvc trunking with 20mm drops or what is it ?

Anything big I ever did was steel so not that familiar

What about this sort of mitre saw? Cheap and provide accurate cutting at any angle - downside is how much space it takes up.
