Hello. It may be simple, but the transfer part catches everyone - yes even me at first. For your application, the trick is to:

  1. pull the slide as far as it will go and match the round-to-round end and match into the angle to be cut/trimmed-out.
  2. transfer the angle to a protractor, and match the angle (now a number) to the scale for "blade angle" on your saw.
  3. should your saw's scale be suspected as inaccurate, match the angle visually with the blade to the item's work surface.
Good luck, and if this helped please vote a four thumbs-up.
Thank you.

Dewalt 12 inch compound sliding miter saw


This saw has locking indexing to set bevels for 52 degree crown molding the other common crown angle is 45 degrees, the bevel setting needs to be other than where the locking indexs are for the 52 degree crown. Problem is that the bevel lock does not securely hold at the bevel angle required. Is their an adjustment to get this lock to hold tighter.

Do you lay the handle long wise against the wall or the end of the handle??


A sliding bevel is used for transferring an angle. What matters is the angle created between the handle and the slider. For example, if you wanted to cut a piece of wood to fit in a corner but that corner is not 90 degrees true. You would loosen the nut, place the center of the bevel in the corner so the edge of the handle lays flat on one wall and the edge of the slider is flat against the other wall. Tighten the screw on the bevel. Now you can lay the bevel on the piece to be cut and mark the exact cut line so the finished piece will fit perfectly.
The sliding T bevel can also be used for setting an angle by using it with a protractor. lay the bevel on a protractor, lock the screw in place at the desired angle, then lay the bevel on the work piece and mark the cut.

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.

How do I use an 8" T bevel?


put it against the wall so it touches both walls. Then lock it in place with the nut. Next if you have a power miter saw lay it on the table and move the blade so it lines up with the angle thay you have then it will give you the angle for the cut.

Good Luck

How to make crown molding with a jet 13" planer /molder


You may want to go to the Forum at OWW (Old WoodWorkers.com). What your attempting to do requires several Passes. I usually Rough out BOTH Face & Bevel, then make 2 more cuts each, to get to the Finished dimensions. I usually start with a Face Cut 1st, leaving some Flats for Square then do the Bevel Cuts to Desired dimension, then back to the Face, & take it down to where the Finished product is where I want it.
