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 !!

The miter looked like it had a serious gap.  I think you would have to do alot of crown molding work to warrant this tool.  Doing one room might be overkill.  I was more impressed with the angle finder tool, myself.  Not the best video I've seen selling a tool.

amen.  I mean, that was sort of embarrassing.  I'm a serious DIY'r with a desk job.  I almost always end up doing things twice but I try to watch and learn as much as possible beforehand.  Those guys made me feel like I was hiring an incompetent sub I have to chase behind.

Yeah you knew their cuts were going to be off from the moment they made it out to saw!! seriously not best video...we didn't even get to see where the other end lined up at bet it didn't make it to other side. yes they made that process complicated.....not best video to promote buying that jig.. READY TO NAIL IT SERIOUSLY.

I think Danny and his friend need to check their cuts again!! The last 10 seconds of the video looked like their miter cut was off quit a bit!! He tried to cover it up with his finger at the last second.

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................

Kreg Mobile Project Center

I just picked up my new Kreg Mobile Project Center Item #KWS1000.

Wow!  I set it up in my basement and it is great addition to my Kreg items.  I was viewing a video where a review on this fine product was being made, which prompts…
