Ok, I have been all over (stores, web, all sites). I have a 130yr old house, the corners are not a 90 degree. How do I determine inside and outside corner angles accurately with tools that I can buy in the store. Is there a tool that you can "stick in the corner" and it will give u the angle..or something of the sort. Once I get the angle I can set the mitre and bevel. I am trying to install Crown..THANKS....HELP

I believe I put that on the last page of the crown tutorial on my site... it's better to just look it up, you might like the other tips as well?

I thought I was loosing it, I checked and it's still there, the last page of the tutorial "squeeze in one last tip"?

And yes there is the angle tables... you'll need that after you determine the angle.

All good replies. THANKS! I incorporated a little froma all. I bought a sliding T-BEVEL ($5) and an angle finder Plus Level (af700m) from Dascopro (sold locally)($14).
I use the t-bevel to copy the angle then I put the angle finder (which has a magnetic end) on the t-bevel to determine the angle.
Again, tks...
