Customer Questions & Answers

can you use this jig to cut 45 degree angles

I am trying to cut the correct angle for my diagonal wall cabinet, which is 45 degrees. I have tried so many times to get this angle and I can't seem to figure it out. I was wondering if I could use this jig to cut these angles using the same concept as if the angle was 90 degrees. That all i would need to do is set my miter at 22.5. Please confirm that I can use it to cut the angles for above the glass cabinet.. Thank you in advance J

Yes you can use this to cut 45 degree angles - but beware that this is dependent on you knowing the spring angle of your molding.

have an angled fire place that I need to install crown moulding above. The angle is 135 degrees. Can I use this tool to cut those angles.
Asked by: carpentrynovice
No, this jig is designed to cut to fit 38,45 & 52 degree angles. You could go to the web and make your own set up for your miter saw.

Really dumb question...How do I determine if the spring angle of the crown is 38, 52 or 45 degrees?

Asked by: PT
The previous answer probably works, but I found a simpler way. 1. Put the crown in the jig. 2. Using a business card (or some other flat edge) place the flat edge against the base of crown (the bottom part that sits on wall) and check for 90 degree angle (i.e., the crown base is flat against the flat edge). 3. Adjust angle if needed to get the 90 degree angle.

Can cut the molding in the right side up position so it's easy to see how it goes on the wall...no mistakes in making the cuts. I put it to use when I got it last week. Definitely met my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly helpful Had to cut crown for a mantle I was building as well as for the top of the room. I was clueless until I got this jig. Well worth the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes cutting moulding easy. This jig helps to hold moulding at the correct angle when cutting it with your saw. It also comes with an angle finder to match the moulding exactly to your wall. Visually, the way the moulding goes into the jig is the same way it will go onto the wall, not upside down, if you were not using the jig. I find this to make the exercise less mentally taxing. However this can splinter the finished side of the wood so be sure to use a sharp finishing saw blade.

Product is plastic and flexes when making cuts throwing your angles off and also not making straight cuts. I was only making a few 45 degree cuts for some crown moulding going under a wall shelf I was making. Because I couldn't get the cuts right with it, the lowest rating they let me choose is one star, I choose zero star

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Struggled with crown molding every project but this last one after wasting about 50 bucks in crown I was ready to throw the saw and molding over my fence !!!!!! Looked this product up online they had it in stock after wasting the material and 3 hours of time ran and got it easy to follow instructions and 30 min later I had perfectly cut crown. If you tried before and it came out so so this is for you. The only thing I wish it had was attachments to secure it to the saw. But I figured next project I will drill holes and bolt it to the saw well worth the money I only wish I had it before I started my project have it for the next on coming up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You don't have to be scared of crown molding anymore! I am not a professional contractor who finishes the inside of houses on a daily basis. That being said crown molding is something I can do but I always end up getting frustrated and scrapping material because of bad cuts. This little plastic tool takes all of that away. Once you get going it gives you a sense of confidence, knowing your making the cut you want to make. People like the look of crown molding but most do not feel it is a project they could do themselves, let me tell you, this makes that project much easier and much faster. For $20 it is a no brainer.
