That was my point. I like the crown45. I was pointing out that the tool snobs would be drooling over it if it was made by Festool. I want bagging on Festool or those that chose to buy Festool.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I had to do some crowns today. I just use the mitre saw and sometimes a small coping saw. HO wanted an mall gap up top because there is lighting behind the crowns. I think it is colored lighting or can change colors. Who knows....

My smoking is quiet enough. Therefore, I haven't felt the need to quit.

If it (smoking) starts getting so loud that people complain, I'll probably attempt cessation.

What were you using before the crown 45? Flat cut with compound angle or upside down/ backwards method?

Wonder what you elitists would be saying if Festtool came out with it first. The thing would cost $375 and you guys would be saying how great they were.
Why is it necessary? what is wrong with just cutting crown nested?

Upside-down backwards. It just makes it easier, for me.

Necessary? Don't remember mentioning necessary. Heck a miter saw isn't necessary to cut crown, just makes it faster and easier.

And I never meant to imply there is anything wrong with any method. Just found it faster and easier to use the jig.

Not really, it just looks like a good way to cut off a finger.

Maybe your finger, but not mine. I can't give any one common sense.

The jig sits to the side. How would you cut your finger off?

I took that current cooker out and put it on a wheeled dolly for time being. There is a 36" dual oven range going in there. They want something other the side of the oven to be next to the doorway so the skinny cabinet worked.

That looks like a nice high-end range

$3600 I think or very close to it. I didn't buy any of the appliances. I do know that in 36" this is the only maker of a double oven. If you go to 48" then you can do wolf or viking for around 8k. I have been waiting for it to show up and after a once over I must say it is top notch. Electric inside and gas cook top.
