I agree with Ron...Why Do They Call It A Compound Miter Saw ????, I had never cut crown before my big plunge then making my large entertainment unit. I cut it with my Miter Saw...only took a few cuts to get the Idea....can't say I would go out and buy a jig after spending the big $$$ on a good saw !!!
Nothing to it if you read and follow the instructions !!
I can't understand why people make this harder then it has to be. If you own a compound miter saw just read the directions and look at the pictures. Be realistic, you may have to fine tune every single piece no matter what you are using, saw/molding. Here's what the directions say; The two flat surfaces on a given piece of crown molding are at angles that, when added together, equal exactly 90 degrees. Most, but not all, crown molding has a top rear angle of ( the section that sits flat against the ceiling) of 52 degrees and a bottom rear angle ( the part that sits against the wall) of 38 degrees.
The compound miter saw has special pre-set miter latch points at 31.6 degrees left and right for cutting crown molding " FLAT AT THE PROPER ANGLE". There is also a mark on the " BEVEL SCALE AT 33.9 DEGREES". The crown molding sits with the back of the molding flat on the base or table. The top of the molding ( meets ceiling) abuts against the fence, NO ANGLE JUST FLAT................
WHY DO THEY CALL IT A COMPOUND MITER SAW???????????????
