P.S. Saw your photos, looks great.
Hey nealtw,

Sorry but I forgot to mention my saw has those stops marked. It must have had a guy with little skill in mind when it was designed... LOL

Anything new going on?

Wife: "You can buy anything you want when you redo this house."

Husband: "Could I get that in writing, dear?"

It is a black art, I love when I get people telling me how they are going to put crown molding up in there home like its the simplest thing to do, I usually shoot them down when I start explaining how it's all working upside down and reversed angles.
