Tool News - Rockler SpeedCope


Rockler just introduced the SpeedCope, a new heavy-duty jig that helps make cope cuts for tight fitting overlapped joints in crown and base molding.

Coped joints have long been the inside corner joint of choice among finish carpenters. To make them, a profile must be cut into the end of one piece matching the exact contour of the piece it will meet. The profiled piece then lays over the other piece of molding, creating a tight joint. Traditionally, woodworkers would bevel the end of the soon-to-be profiled piece and use a coping saw to hand cut the profile along the beveled edge. The SpeedCope accelerates this process with a stable platform that gives woodworkers the necessary control to make delicate cope cuts with a power jig saw.
