need to cut angled joins for window frame


Hi all.
This is the 1st time I've done anything like this so please bear with me! One of the panes in our bathroom window is cracked and also the wooden bead surrounds are rotting. I've got the replacement glass and beading and think I know what I'm doing to replace the glass but I'm not sure the best way to cut the 45 degree angles I'll require when I'm cutting the replacement beading. Do I need to get a mitre saw? If I buy a 'workmate' bench will that have something that will allow me to cut the angle with my existing hand saw? I've resisted getting a work bench until now (because we do as little DIY as possible) but maybe now's the time?? Obviously if I could get away without buying a mitre saw that would be good as money is pretty tight at the moment.
Any comments gratefully received, Iain

You are right the easiest was to cut a mitre joint is with a mitre saw with its own set up jig. You could always mark 45 degrees on both bits of timber and use filler for any inaccuracy.....cheaper for sure but a mitre cutter will be best . You can but the whole thing.saw and jig together....or just buy a mitre guide in plastic or hardwood........try B&Q( treat yourself to a fine bladed new saw while you are at it ) a new saw will only cost you 6-7 pounds
good luck
Barry
