Re: Crown Moulding Installation


Oh I've seen them, just a shame that most folks won't realize his cuts aren't the only thing he isn't even thinking about while he's doing that.

Doesn't seem to take his time when using his screwdriver to drill screws in to secure his jig either.

That and slamming the blade into the cut is a great way to bend the blade and on a Dewalt saw bend the arbor bushing leading to excessive run out and warping the arbor. That bushing bends easily.

On a Dewalt saw there is no good reason to remove the guard. If you have a problem with the sight lines you just drag it up and out of the way with your thumb and release it when the cut is done. It does nothing to affect speed.

If he thinks having a guard is inconvenient, he should try living with no fingers. Or explaining to his helper's parents why his unsafe tool killed him.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I do not like positive stops at DeWalt. They are to sharp and if I want cut little of the stop angle slide back in stop. I prefer Hitachi and 8,5" sliding is my workhorse. Actually I drag it about everywhere. Right now is at a house where I cut framing with it. I drag it at scaffolding too if I do siding. Btw at DeWalt and Hitachi, and any other serious chop saw that I know, there are positive stops for compound cut for crown 38 and 45 spring. Why nobody do not use it except me and why each manufacturer made it even I guess I'm only one who use it at this planet it is above my power of understanding. 38 is marked with arrow and 45 with circle.

Most of us know how to cut crown on flat. I leaned on the flat before I learned nested. There is a time and place for both. Like I said before, we aren't your craigslist competition, we are legitimate contractors.

Cutting flat is easy, just look for the triangle and circle on your saw...

You miss my post that I'm an educated mathematician. I know find all angles for any spring of crown in a few minutes at internet.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


I don't need to know the spring angle, that's even faster.

I mean, you don't have to be a mathematician to read a compound cut chart for different spring angles.

Like the chart that's in the owner's manual of just about every miter saw.

My lifelong friend's father has been a carpenter his entire life. 56 years old now, started helping his dad in his cabinet shop when he was 8. Dropped out of school and started framing full time at 16. Got his own company going when he was 26, has been building, trimming, tiling, laying brick, laying hardwoods and drywalling almost every day of his life.

This winter I crashed in their guest room when I drank too much at a holiday party, walked into the living room and he was watching "This Old House." I asked him, "Don't you kinda know all this by now?" He responded with "Yeah, but if you're open to it every now and again you'll pick up something new."

The take away here is if you can keep your ego in check, you'll always find ways to better yourself and the work you put out there (not calling your work bad, just saying there's always another way). And learning is fun.

The light shines brightest against the darkness. You can use those situations to your advantage in a big way from a sales and marketing perspective.

Re: Crown Moulding Installation


What are the odds of trim being behind that corner patch? Haha, I hate to tell the guy but it needs to come down. Im sick of picking the bones on jobs.
I didnt ask how much he paid I was already laughing to much.
The guy left a nice pile of saw dust too.
