I am having difficulty getting nice fitting corners on some large crown
molding (6 1/2"). I understand all the angles (33.9 / 31.6 etc..I also
measure the angle of the corner before cutting), but I can;t ever seem to
get a nice fit on either the inside or outside corner. I can't place the
molding "upside and backwards" as if it was being hung on the wall, because
my Makita can only cut 5 1/2" in this configuration. Therefore, I place the
molding with the flat side down on the table and cut the bevel and angle.

Suggestions are needed, PLEASE HELP

Have a look at the tutorial, that covers pretty well all of it. Alter Eagle Site look at Owner tutorials
You're lucky of you've managed to find a crown with the spring angle that matches the saw stops...
Mark out the crown at your corners so you're sure to have the right rise & run (which gives you the spring angle) and you'll find that you'll most likely need to carry a few shims with you in older buildings, to shim out the corners at the joints... it's all in the tutorial. Also if you cope you'll find you'll get a better fit.
