Just did another. Made the jig, took 2 minutes to cut the jig insert. Did the rest of my business at the house. Next day went to the shop and put the insert in the sled and screwed the fences in position (acute angle), took 2 tries to get the miters even, about 4 minutes. Then I cut my pcs, all the left sides on the moldings about 6 minutes. Reset the fences for the obtuse angle and got lucky, 1st try, 2 minutes. Then cut the other side of the molding. I was able to use the fence on the TS. Another 6 minutes. I glued them together with yellow glue and 2P-10, about 6 minutes to glue each pc up. Done. Now they get primed and then I go to the clients house and install them on the wall in about 1/2 hour. The only cutting that will occur is for the chair railing, another 1/2 hour.
And the angled pcs came out perfect the first time, no fuss no muss no guessing no worrying. And they are having me do lots more work. Because they like my methods.
Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
