In re:"crown moulding" by tina marie on 01/15/02 at 12:29:17 Put your moulding on the mitre saw as it would sit on the wall (or mantle as in this case)but upside-down,then make your left or right mitres.No compound saw needed unless your trim is taller than the fence on your saw,then you will need to know the spring angle of the particular crown you have. refer to the owners manual of your saw to get mitre and bevel angles.When you use the upside-down method scribe a line on the table of the saw when you get the trim seated right or clamp a piece of wood to the table to hold each piece of trim the same way.Works for mitres and copes. Just a little note... If you need to buy another piece of crown or any trim take a small piece with you to make sure the profile matches.Homecenters sometimes use several different jobbers for there supply.The trim might look the same but little differences in there profile can cause big problems in matching up mitres.Been there.
