Miter gauge

RATE THIS:

Does anyone here know of an instrument or gauge I can use to find the right angle to set my chop saw to cut the miter for crown or baseboard on an unknown angle?

Ballyhoohi (!!!),

You don't really need fancy gauges and gizmos. Only two pieces of paper. As shown on the photos, keep the paper against each side of the corner and tape them together. Then draw a line from corner to corner, as shown, then fold the pieces to find the exact angle to be reproduce on your miter saw or tablesaw. This tip works on either inside and outside corners.
