    Well i clicked on your link and got homebase beds !!! i then searched "silverline mega box" and it found nothing!

    Cutting skirting is easy !! you could do it adequately by hand and eye!! you can use decorators filler (caulk) and even the 'coping' method....

    are you an advert bot for homebase? ;)

    suspect it will only cut around 5 to 5 1/2 inches as its a 8" blade
    assuming you mean this saw Powerbase Xtreme Mitre Saw - 1300W

    Never mind the skirting, 1/2 price beds and 20% of sheds. Cool

    Anyway, don't forget that internal angles are scribed not mitred, and external ones are easy to do, by just marking the cut and standing the skirting upright

    the thing is though the skirting board is 6 inches high so to tall for a mitre box, so used a silverline one but just broke while cutting



    makes it worse laying the skirting board down.
