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
Asked by: EXPASS
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.

Will this tool work with a 7.5" blade on a miter saw?

I have a Kobalt miter saw with a 7.25" blade that has worked great for all of our moldings. We have been able to use it for our crown moulding, but often time the wood slips during the cutting process so that the pieces don't align. I've seen that this will work with a 10" blade, just not sure about the smaller blades.

Crown Moulding Cutting Jig is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't know anything about crown moulding There are a lot of things rattling around in my head, birthdays, phone numbers, work stuff, but one thing I never wanted to spend the time or energy on was understanding crown moulding. Inside left, outside right, angle the saw while using the miter at 37 degrees. Even now it makes me bored. But this thing, this stupid twenty dollar plastic device means I can keep birthdays and phone numbers in my head because it does all the thinking for me. It's like a magic trick. I put the moulding where the photo says, I put the saw where the photo says, I put the crown moulding up and abracadabra. I'm still a crown moulding idiot but my living room looks great. If you are at all confused about crown moulding, buy this little thing and save yourself your brain power.

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 Makes a hard job easy I just finished installing two-part molding - bottom piece is flat against wall and the second (top) piece is 52 degree crown. This jig made it a snap. (I struggled through doing the same job without the jig using with same molding in another room - much, much more difficult. Best money I spent on this or any other recent project.

I got a D in my high school woodworking class, but this jig made it easy to install crown mounding in 4 rooms of my house. The written instructions are helpful and the video is great. You don't have to turn the mounding upside down. Just measure and cut.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great if everything came in the box There was no protractor like the box says so we had to drive an hour away to buy one separately. Other than that it was fine.

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.
