SOURCE: 45 degree cut

Are you having problems with the miter or bevel ? Are you asking how to physically move the saw to that degree angle?

SOURCE: Cutting 45's on my Dewalt 744

I don't know why it's rubbing, did you try the small one to see if it is different in some way? How about the stop screw, is it 45 degrees or more? Check it with your speed square. And yes, make a custom plate out of plywood. Which way does the blade tilt? Left is best, locking your work against the fence is the worst idea I have ever seen, (delta) It sounds like the big plate is for a dado blade.

SOURCE: how to cut a 45 degree angle on wood using a jig

use a combination sliding square to mark ecxactly where you want to cut. Measure the distance from the jig-saw blade to the edge of the jig-saw bottom plate. Use this distance to mark another line parralel to the first line. Nail or screew a straight piece of wood on the second line. Put the jig-saw plate against the wood fence and cut your perfect line.

How do I cut an angle of 135


You would cut a 45 from the backside if the face side is to have a 135 degree cut. You will need trim up to the final cut.

Maybe this image will help explain it.

I did a 45 degree bevel cut with my Dewalt portable table saw and now I can not get the blade back to a 90 degree position, any thoughts?


Did you check to see if the saw has a locking nut on the front of the bevel gauge handle? Its possible you just locked it into position and forgot to unlock.

How to cut wood trim corner angles ?


It's generally easiest not to figure them at all - prop them in their intended position (although usually upside-down) to make the cut. Doing that eliminates any need for a compound miter saw. That assumes you're talking about crown molding. If you just want the angles for flat moldings, then remember that a square corner equals 90 degrees. Split that corner in half to make a miter joint, and you'll want 45 degrees. If you're making a half-round corner with three pieces, split the 90 degrees by three (the number of pieces) and you get 30 degrees each.

It does get a little more complicated if you're meeting one thickness molding with a completely different thickness molding - then sometimes the easiest thing to do is not miter at all, but make a "coped joint".

I have to install the crown molding around a wall that has an octagonal shape so some of the corner are larger than 90 degrees


Michael, I understand the angles, but you haven't asked a question. But I'll guess and continue... Cutting the angles you need will not be any problem, since they will be about halfway between a 45 degree cut and a straight (that's zero or 90 degrees depending on how you look at it). But the other consideration is that inside corner cuts on trim are done much better if you cope them (this still involves using a miter saw.) Guessing a bit further, you might not know how to do that. Just Google - how to cope trim. There are lots of article and videos on this. Good luck, Al K

Can the dewalt 705 cut a 45 for a corner on crown molding? It'll cut a 45, just not the 45 cross ways for the moldings to come together at the corner. Any thoughts if we are lacking tools?


it seems that you are not "bedding" the molding up properly in the saw.

imagine the saw being the ceiling and the fence being the wall.

Hold the molding in the saw the way it would be installed, with the base being the ceiling and the fence being the wall

Swing the saw to a 45 degree angle and make the cut.

When cuuting crown molding for an inside corner cope on a compound miter saw ,what degrees do i set the saw


Hello. thanks for choosing fixya. Here is the best way to do an inside corner:
For an inside corner joint, square-cut the first piece of molding and **** it tight into corner.
1. Miter-cut the second piece to 45 degrees.
2. Highlight the leading edge of the molding with a pencil.
3. Cut along leading edge with a coping saw.
4. Smooth the cut edge with 100-grit sandpaper to create a tight joint

How do I cut my Scotia floor trim at the correct angles for corners? I have the Scotia edging trimmer, but am having trouble getting the trim to meet neatly at outer and inner corners.


first cut a peice at 45 degrees and place it on the corner you are working on,now cut another piece (scrap peice) at 45 degrees.Now if the are not a tight fit then you will have to recut the second peice to a differant degree,per say47 dgree and then refit the peice to see if its a tighter fit,may have to do this several times to get the right degree for tight fit.Not many walls and corners in housesare true 90 degrees.Must have pateince for this type of work.

I cannot get a perfect 45 degree angle with my Makita circular saw. Is it me or the saw??


When using the gauge on your saw it is off on the 45 degree cut? If so you might have to use a tri Square every time you want to cut a 45. Sometimes the lock gauge for the 45 angle may be off some. When you put a tri square on the board you cut it is not a true 45 even though the saw says it is?

What do i do to cut inside/outside corners for crown molding


It is very hard to make proper cuts with one of these.

You may want to buy a power miter saw.

You would be better off marking your 45 degree angle and cutting it freehand.

If you angle your saw a little the face will look like it matches up better.

If you need more help post a comment.
