NEW YORK CITY - Whether dressing up adjoining ceilings and walls, adding decorative elements to cabinetry and furniture, or enhancing door and window hoods, crown molding lends artistic flair. But for carpenters, builders, cabinet and furniture makers, and woodworkers, the challenge always has been accurate cutting to create seamless corner joints. The E Z Pro Crown King (880) from General Tools & Instruments makes precise crown molding cutting a snap, eliminating trial and error and saving time and money, the manufacturer says. The new jig will be on display at next month's AWFS Fair in Las Vegas (Booth 4990).
Unlike other crown molding jigs on the market, General’s Crown King requires no assembly and is designed for the ultimate ease of use. Right out of the box, it enables the production of interior and exterior corner joints with the three most common crown molding spring angles. The Crown King comprises two pieces: the jig itself and a versatile insert/adapter. Without the insert, the jig is positioned for cutting 45-degree spring angle moldings. With the insert, it is quickly reconfigured to accommodate 38- or 52-degree spring angles.
In combination with a miter saw, the Crown King can create precise joining angles every time. Simply measure the corner angle, divide it by half, set your miter saw to that angle, cut and fit.
