Fred F from Gibsonia, PA Posted April 7, 2011
Where this jig particularly shines is when coping a hardwood molding. It's one thing to cope by hand pine or poplar or MDF type material and completely another when coping something like oak. If you have more than a couple of oak baseboards to cope then you will be sitting there for quite some time and getting extremely tired with a sore arm and hand getting the job done with a hand coping saw. However, this jig allows you to use your jig saw very easily to cope even oak trim in my opinion much better than with a hand coping saw with less sanding when done.You can make your own jig with some time and left over material - but the cost of this is minimal and the little bit of angle allows you to make a perfect fit.

I used the BaseCoper on a recent project and found that it worked OK. I wish it was made of sturdier material though. It flexed somewhat under the weight of my jigsaw. You need more than the one spring clamp to hold it steady. I also found that std length jig saw blades may be a little short if your base is thicker than 5/8". I was using Bosch T101AO blades which have a OAL of 3-1/4" and working length of 2-5/16" on a standard colonial base molding. I had to be careful in positioning of the BaseCoper to ensure the blade would not pull out of the wood on the upstroke, this required careful positioning of the BaseCoper. Otherwise it worked well and once I had the hang of it I could position the BaseCoper and finish a cut in less than 30 seconds that required no additional fitting. Overall it was well worth the price for the time and aggravation it saved just on one job. If it was made from aluminum and cost a little more it would be an even better product.

I bought this item to do some baseboard at home. I tried it on two boards and threw it in the drawer. Maybe with some more practice it might work all right, but I was able to scribe a line to the back of the baseboard and get the same results handholding my jigsaw...without the aggravation of trying to use the basecoper.
