A must have jig tool.
Awesome resourdd CD r to have for marking and measuring the bull nose corners for baseboard. Highly recommended and works exactly as it is designed for. The only drawback is if you have not removed a certain section of old baseboard around the return part of the bill nose you will not be able to mark Crüe measurement closer to the floor.

Awesome tool!
This made bullnose corners so easy. I was a little intimidated at first because I've never done baseboards before and every outside corner in my house is bullnose. I highly recommend this little tool.

Mike B on May 21, 2020
Using the bullnose trim gauge...I line everything up and fits great. When I nail the midle bullnose piece, it shifts and is a little off. Happened 5 out of 5 times. What am I doing wrong?
Bullnose 5150 on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Just nail the side pieces and glue the center piece to the sides. Nailing into curved metal can cause the small trim to shift.
Can I use this tool to cut out the middle piece?
Bruce on Aug 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, you can't. However, the instructions are very clear on how the piece needs to be cut.
will this tool help with 22.5 degree inside and outside pieces?
rob w on Dec 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This tool makes bullnose corners easy. Just follow the simple instructions and you can’t go wrong.
At which degree are the pieces cut?
Michael S V on Feb 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Normally 90• bi angle is 45. In this case you have two 45• angles so answer is 22.5• cuts
I hope this answer your question
Will this work on square corners not bullnosed?
DAVID K on Feb 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No
