When cutting crown molding, you’ve usually got two choices: 1) Calculate the compound angle and actually use your compound miter saw to its full potential, or 2) cut it upside down and backwards. Both of these non-intuitive methods can lead to expensive mistakes. Screw that — why not use a jig like Milescraft’s Crown45 that lets you cut the the crown molding just like you’ll put it up on the wall?
You can easily adjust the Crown45 to match the spring angle of the crown molding you’re installing. The wide cutting surface handles moldings from 2″ to 5-1/2″ wide, and an indented cutting face handles moldings with details that stand proud of the molding, which are common in dentil-style molding. When you’re done cutting, the Crown45 collapses relatively flat for easy storage.
Street pricing for Milescraft’s Crown45 starts at $30.
