Default Minute Miter

Has anyone used this tool for perfect mitered corners? Looks easy. I'm having lots of difficulty making my mitered corners even and looking nice.

had to google it... http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&key...l_3m78aq7hn1_e
i've never used it... i just make sure the measurements on each side of the angle are exactly the same... my math background tells me that it should turn out perfect that way.

Have you checked all the tutorials on mitered corners?
Check Youtube and Craftsy or just google Mitered corners tutorial and
you will find lots.
Watch all the tutorials you can find and practice with some scraps.
It's really not that hard.

This cracks me up because I ordered and misplaced a "perfect piecing seam guide" tool before I organized my sewing area and cannot find it to save my life. Since today was free shipping at MSQC I ordered another. Since I will soon have two, I'm sure I'll find it!!

Lots of great you tubes on mitering, it gets easier with practice. I am sure the tool is good but I do not have one.
