You are very much welcome to have a go with mine :D Either you have only used it once or twice or are only cutting some small sticks with it or…

either way those handles are made out of cheese and you can see almost everyone complaining about that tool because of the terrible handles

I’ve used it hundreds of times to cut boards large and small, FYI. It is my principal crosscutting saw.

I agree it would be nice if the saw came with a better handle. I tightened it once soon after assembly and haven’t had to since.

FWIW, problems with the handle seem to confirm my suspicion that you’re putting way too much torque on the thing. All types of handsawing (miter box or not) benefit from smooth sawing and letting the blade do the work.

Best of luck with your future miter box.
