Great tool. Easy to use and made cutting crown easy

I’m not sure if this would help professionals, but it was a big help for an amateur like me. It helped me cut perfect or near perfect cuts every time.

This product allowed me to install crown molding in the double tray ceiling in our master bedroom. These were all inside cuts (16) and with the use of this product, I was able to make these cuts as you would put them up on the ceiling. It took all the prior “upside down and backward” guesswork and threw it out the window. I did not make one mistake with my cuts. As to critics, yes, you have to make sure you hold the jig down along with the crown so it doesn’t slide around to make the exact cuts but PATIENCE does pay off. It was a cheap solution to a problem that faces many home re-modelers when it comes to crown molding. I would recommend it to anyone considering a crown install.

Works great! Second time doing my own crown molding and I wish I had it the first time. I would recommend this for any DIY person that’s out there.

This is absolutely the best way to install your own crown moulding. Only suggestion is using a 12 inch miter saw because it has more room on the saw deck for the jig and moulding.

As an occasional DIY ‘er I just never mastered this art. This product allowed me to cut inside and outside corners on crown molding accurately and quickly. I recommend this product without reservation. My personal experience using the standard process of cutting backward and upside down etc., etc., resulted with many, many errors, loss of material & money with loss of time as well.

This jig takes all of the guesswork out of cutting crown molding. Extremely easy to use and provided fantastic results!

I should have bought one a long time ago! It makes it so much easier to properly cutting crown molding. Cutting in the same orientation as it goes on the wall, no flipping required.

It’s a nice novel idea, however falls short of expectations for the price. As you can see from the photos, I had to fasten duct tap to hold the cut angle. It’s accuracy is nowhere near a miter fence you could buy for your saw. Made in China…poor quality.

I have been using the product to install crown in our kitchen, DR, LR and foyer. The product works great. I do find it a little difficult to keep the jig from sliding on the table of the miter saw. Probably should have some type of rubber on the base to keep it from sliding. So far all the cuts are better than ones I made before using this jig.

The crown moulding jig works as advertised. I was able to quickly learn the proper way to use this product by watching the included DVD. Took a few practice cuts to get the technique down, and then I was set to crown the entire house….which is now done! The only improvement I can think of is some way to lock the selected angle on the jig. Just make sure that you confirm the angle setting on the jig before each cut.

Whether you know what you are doing or have no clue, this makes crown molding cuts effortless. Simply watch the DVD and you’re a pro. Everyone should own one of these.

In the beginning, I had a difficult time holding/bracing crown molding between the miter fence and Crown 45. I would recommend some bracing device that could assist in maintaining the proper angle during the cutting process.

It does work but with much difficulty holding material and jig securely. Recommend only for small job where cost of jig is major consideration.

I was very happy with this jig, although it does have some limitations. Pros: I was quite happy with the way you can cut the crown using this jig – no turning the crown upside down to cut the correct angles. Cut it facing forward on the jig and just make the cut as you would see it on the wall. Just made my life a lot easier despite having worked with crown a little before. Also, this is a great jig for a 10″ miter saw with a smaller table. The bottom of the jig stays flush with the table and the crown is held in place between the jig and the fence. I found this very stable and easy to work with. I also have the Kreg crown jig which is good, but that jig holds the crown about 2″ above the table so the piece of crown you’re cutting is “floating” above the table of the saw so the cutting angle is not always very true, particularly when working with more flexible crown material. Cons: The one thing I didn’t like about this jig is the way you set the spring angle on the jig itself. It’s easy to set and stays in fine, but it doesn’t lock into place at the angle you choose (38, 45, 52). Therefore, every time you lift the jig off the saw it folds up so you are regularly having to reset the spring angle on the jig. That’s a little annoying, but really the only drawback I encountered when using the Crown45. Overall very happy with my purchase.

Worked well and as expected. Only minor issue was the angle finders which were a bit wonky. But a useful, well engineered tool for its purpose.
