No jig, no stops, just blue masking tape along the fence and mark it with a pencil. Now if you need to roll it a little you have a reference

I had a Delta 12" miter saw model 36-422 that had built in crown stops in the base that scolapse flush when not needed. Nice saw but loud and that sucker would shoot dust right into your face!

I've rarely seen a HO tackle crown. And to use the jig you still need to know the basics of crown installation. So while they do have a hint of a HO or Hack, it's just something that holds the crown they way I would, but makes it a bit safer and accurate.

If you ever get to attend one of his seminars it is well worth your time. Lots of information and tips to increase quality and speed. He used to have many all day seminars at JLCLive and all across the country but has cut back to about 8 or 10.

I understand what you're saying, but for me the problem with that type of jig is the way it holds the crown up off the saw table and doesn't allow for full support of long pieces on the saw extensions. Plus it only works with narrow width crown. But if it works for you, then by all means...

Nope, the crown sits right on the saw table and right on top of your saw extensions. It also works with pretty much any crown, it's not limited by any width.

Have you actually seen how it works or are you guessing?

I'm looking forward to the section on finding a nailer for stain grade crown. Will you be covering the method where you start nailing and then just pop another nail in every 1" until it bites?

You know, it really has been amusing to read through this thread, particularly the parts where you state how everyone that isn't doing crown the way you do are doing something wrong. But then again, it's also kinda sad to see you struggle so much putting together coherent sentences, and moreover, coherent thoughts. I will give you benefit of the doubt that English isn't your first (primary) language, but it says little of how your thoughts seem to be jumbled, yet you proclaim superiority of methods.

Maybe I've missed it, but have you clearly explained WHY exactly everyone is wrong in their methods that don't adhere to yours? I'd appreciate it if you could either point me to your post that does so, or perhaps explain it now.

Did I miss it? Does he have a video (or something) demonstrating his crown installation prowess?

Well, I found your craigslist ad, so now I won't have to buy your video:

"***I cope all moldings at inside corners, even for biggest stain grade crown molding, so it don't fall apart with weather change. I cope it with jig saw not angle grinder (huge dust) or Dremel / RotoZip (huge noise). I cut crown molding with compound cut not with special jig that take 3 rooms of yours house or project. I scribe board that go to wall (like end kitchen filler), do not just cut a size and fill hole between wall and board with silicon. I don't use wood putty or silicon to cover quality of joints in trim that I make, so you can see my work and because putty or silicon will fall out of joint in 1 year."


I don't using silicon for filling holes, either. It works much better for making microchips.

No I can't wait a year! You're under estimating the overwhelming demand of your DVD. You should start on it now and don't worry about making them in different languages It will still be foreign to everyone.

I've seen a demo of the blue Kreg crown jig and that's what I remember...
