Need help! I am not a pro, just an average homeowner.

Here is the problem: I need to cut a 22.5 degree angle on quarter round (molding on a triangular window). I have a 10" electric miter saw (just purchased) but don't know how to cut an angle less than 45 deg. Is there a trick to doing this?? Or do I just eyeball it with the saw.

thanks for the help!!!

are you sure your saw doesn't have any sort of stops or at least a gauge on it for 22.5 degrees

You can use a wooden wedgee to space the trim away from the fence.....

like a 22.5* wedge and the saw set to 45*

or a 67.5* wedge/fence and the saw remains at 90*.....

the problem is supporting the long length of stock with a minimal table.....

You can flip the wedge to cut the matching miter on the other side of the saw......

You can find another jig here:

It is a 10" Ryobi from **********. It has a laser light which is pretty worthless, but otherwise I like the saw
