Crown Molding Cutting Jig - CROWN MOLDING CUTTING JIG. Produces perfect fitting miters every time. Crown stop quickly adjusts to lock molding. Fits all 10" & larger miter saws
Theres no denying that nearly everyone loves crown molding, but cutting the molding is no picniceven for some pros. Thats because crown molding gets installed at an angle against the wall and ceiling, and precise cuts are required to obtain tight-fitting corner joints. Complicating the situation is the fact that crown molding is expensive; it only takes two or three miscuts to blow your budget. But dont despair you can end the trepidation and frustration with the Bench Dog 10-010 Crown-Cut Jig. This surprisingly simple device provides a quick, foolproof way to cut crown molding, even for novice do-it-yourselfers.
Crown-Cut is designed to work with any 10-inch or larger power miter saw, and itll accommodate crown moldings up to 6 inches wide. The jig is made of Baltic birch plywood and it plastic stops and steel tabs that adjust to match the moldings height and distance it projects from the wall.
To use the jig, simply set it onto the saw table and adjust it to match the molding size. Then place the molding into the jig and itll automatically be held at the proper wall angle. Set the saw blade to 45 degrees, and make the cut. This method is much easier than holding the molding flat on the table and setting the saw for a compound angle cut, which requires figuring out both bevel and miter angles. -- Joseph Truini
