Cutting crown flat for vaulted ceilings

I have found plenty of charts and calculators to cut crown flat for horizontal corners but can't seem to find one for vertical angles. I am using a crown too large to set in the saw at an angle so need to cut it flat.
Is there a chart or calculator or just a simple rule I can follow?

Thanks
Stuart

Try this website. Wayne Drake has a book on trim and he covers how to do what you are asking. It is done with two turns.

Check out his book. I have seen it a Lowes and is also available on amazon.com

Thanks I have seen the website but I was hoping not to have to buy a book to get the saw setting I need :)

Thanks but I think those are the standard wall angle charts. I am looking for something similar for vaulted ceilings, unless I am missing something simple and they can be used for that too?

believe there are special marks on tilt scale (33.85 deg) and miter scale (31.62 deg) of most miter saws for cutting crown flat. put bottom edge against the fence. works for crown with standard spring angle 38 degrees.
