Default Power tool help needed

I am about to put new pine skirting in my house but have found out that the compound electric mitre saw I have won't cut actions the whole width of the board.

Has anyone local to Watford got a sliding compound mitre saw I can borrow for a bit as I can only do the skirting when I'm off work and what with doing shifts and our current spate of rubbish weather its going to take a bit longer?

That is going to be my plan if I can't find one to borrow.

How far does it miss the cut? Before I got a sliding one, I used to put blocks under what I was cutting, to bring it closer to the blade.

It misses by around 25mm.
