Product Overview

Since 1910, General Tools has grown to become the recognized industry leader for specialty hand tools and instruments. Carpenters, builders, interior decorators and DIYers know that crown molding lends artistic flair to ceilings and walls. Whether dressing-up ceilings, adding decorative elements to cabinetry or enhancing door and window hoods, Generals Crown King jig enables cutting precise joining angles every time. Its distinct design eliminates confusing upside-down miter box positioning and compound angle cutting, enabling fast and easy production of interior and exterior corner joints. With its 38/52 Degree insert, the Crown King enables cutting the three most common crown molding spring angles.
  • Removes annoying trial and error and streamlines the creation of crown molding since crown stock is orientated in the crown king jig the same way it is installed so it's easier to visualize and plan cuts, no flipping stock or inverting angles
  • Crown king jig eliminates the need for confusing upside-down miter box positioning, compound-angle cutting, complicated compound miter angle calculations, coping of joints, back-cuts and auxiliary fences
  • Features adaptor for 52° and 38° spring angle crown stock or remove adapter to cut 45° spring angle crown
  • Create perfectly fitting interior and exterior crown moulding joints
  • End-user needs only to rotate the saw blade to the angle corresponding to the corner of the walls
  • 4-simple steps: (1) measure the interior (INT) and exterior (EXT) corners using the included angle finder/protractor, (2) set the saw blade direction as indicated on the top of the jig, then set the blade at 1/2 of the measured angle, (3) hold moldings securely in the jig and make the cut using an electric or hand miter saw, (4) test fit and then install crown molding
  • Includes handy angle finder/protractor
  • Suitable for electrical miter saws, radial and table saws and adjustable manual miter saws
  • 1-year limited warranty

Will this accommodate 6" crown molding using a 10" sliding miter saw?

Asked by OKAstro March 22, 2021
1
Answer

The tool only assures the proper angle when cutting for inside and outside corners. If your crown molding is 6” wide you should not have a problem with a sliding miter.

Would you recommend this over crown stops for a DIYer?

Yes I would definitely recommend this tool. Easy to use and worked great.

Does this tool help hold the crown molding in place to get accurate cuts?

Asked by Alex December 9, 2019

Answers

This does a good job of holding the wood in place. If you are cutting a long piece, it works better if the far end is supported.

No, place the moulding in the jig with the ceiling edge up.

can this be used to make picture frames

Answers

There's not much difference between crown moulding and picture moulding so it should work. It is more complicated than you need, though, a plain miter box would probably suffice.

Fantastic Tool
This jig is awesome. I started kitchen project and could not figure out crown to save my life. I bought the Kreg and still no luck with many feet of crown going to waste. I bought the General Tools jig, watched a video and then did the job. AWESOME!

This cutting jig has made installing crown moulding fast and easy. Using the jig eliminates the uncertainty of setting up the section to cut and delivers an accurate cut each time. While I am only doing the standard 45 degree installation, it's nice to have the flexibility to install at different angles. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend this for anyone installing crown moulding.

I am not new to DIY. I read the words 'cutting jig' and thought it was operated much like a manual splicer and assumed the jig would cut the crown molding. My suggestion in marketing this product is to stress its importance as a stable surface to use the handsaw or circular saw when cutting. In other words these should be bought together with the caveat that saw some kind is cutting implement is required, if the purchaser does not already own one. The 3/4" edge trim molding was pliable enough to be cut with a serrated knife and sanded smooth, to finish framing the door to my grow room.

I did it!
So I couldn’t perfect the angles but I still did it! We have had unfinished trim work for years! I finally bought this and tried my hand at it and it worked! I am a 48 yr old female and not really all that handy:-)

Finally, I have crown moulding!
I do not have spatial abilities, so, although I've wanted crown moulding, I've made do with border paper and other (boring) effects. Not anymore! This jig came with super clear instructions (I did watch the youtube vid, but I think the sheet would have been enough). I have an old house, so nothing is plumb, and I have a very cheap power miter saw, so getting exact angles wasn't possible, but with this jig and a little caulk and spackle, my ceiling now looks great! Really, if you are comfortable with a power miter saw, you will be able to use this jig. And for under $20? It may be the best buy I've made for my old house. Two things: First, the jig includes a useful protractor (so I can return the one I bought) and, second, no one could find this in the store (even when I bought it online for in-store pick-up). I finally found it back in the mouldings endcap, where they sell turned feet, etc., on one of the higher shelves.

Removes the confustion
Takes all the confusion out of the cuts. To those who are splintering their cuts, perhaps using a sharp finish blade will give you better results, my cuts came out perfect. As the saying goes, use the right tool for the job, which this definitely is.
