Like surgery
I have been coping for years...tough on the hands! This jig really adds a high level of precision to the process.

I use a Bosch JS572E with the orbital feature unselected, and a Bosch T101AO scroll blade...it's like surgery!

But here is a tip I have yet to see in print. Before; you cut your miter, measure that wall angle! Cutting on a 45 and hoping the cope will handle it is a recipe for hard work.

Remember, the wider the angle on the miter saw, the longer the cut. Think Baguette. You buy a baguette from the baker and it's 2" wide. You want more of a slice so you angle the knife. Same thing on the miter saw. If you cut a 45 degree and your corner is 88.5 degrees calling for a 44.25 degree miter, you cut will be too long. The bottom wall point will get there before the top leaving a gap and lots of hand work.

So...if the wall is 90 degrees, by all means cut a 45. But if it is any other angle, measure the angle accurately and cut the miter accurately by dividing by two...THEN cope!

I always have a file/rasp in my back pocket. One side is flat (rasp and smoothing file) the other side is curved (rasp and smoothing).

Cutting the proper angle and using the speed cope tends to leave that hand tool in my back pocket and if it does come out, it's not for long.

A must have
I don't do a lot of crown, but when I do, I'll do it with the Speed Cope. Perfect corners every time! The initial set up took me a little bit but when I got the hang of it, it was a breeze. This jig makes perfect corners on less than perfect walls and ceilings.

This product worked better than I...
This product worked better than I ever thought. The DVD was very helpful. I was able to do a rectangle room in about 1.5 hours after doing a couple of test cuts. Otherwise the process is quite simple, one end is coped and the other is square working left to right. The only thing I experienced is that you need to adjust the angle you cut from 45 to the spring angle of the crown. I cope with a Porter Cable using their 13TPI scroll blade. Takes about 3 minutes to cope a 4in crown. I highly recommend it.

Wow! I just finished an installation...
Wow! I just finished an installation of about 600 lf of baseboard and shoe molding using the Speed-Cope. I could not be happier nor more productive. I added rubber base molding on the top surface to give additional resistance to whatever I cut and have clamped an LED swivel head desk lamp next to the jig because being able to see what you are cutting certainly increases the odds of success. I would spend the money again but the product is a quality one and will not have to be replaced anytime soon. Go for it.

It doesn’t work very well with thicker wood. But, overall it works decent. I’ll continue to use it for coping crown molding.

Thomas Ciccarello S on Jul 26, 2018
I have avoided coping, using precisely measured miter corners instead. However, I've decided to cope all the inside corners on my 360' base molding replacement project, so I am leaning on this jig to get me there with a decently low frustration level.

I am hoping this item will help me to cope crown moulding miter joints (inside and outside) for my first time doing this without training.

Needed for complicated crown mold install
Clark C on Dec 30, 2016
I am working on a hotel with over 65 rooms. Safety regulations won't allow free hand jigsaw coping. With this tool, the jigsaw is used the way it was intended. Mitering joints in base and crown is time-consuming, involving several trips to the miter saw to get each side of the joint just right. With this tool, its possible to use the miter saw once cope and it and it will fit the first time.

Putting in crown molding in an entire house is work. This takes the chore out of coping.

Jeffrey A K on Apr 17, 2016
It had very good reviews. I'm doing crown molding to complete several sections of a coffered ceiling. This should enable me to do a first class coping job.
Aubrey B on Sep 30, 2015
Because of the good reviews and have a large job coming up that this will be a big help on.

Can you adjust speedcope for different spring angles? 45 spring angle?
Pete on Feb 23, 2016
how does it work with outside corners?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: it doesn't work for outside, strictly the back saw cope for inside corners going into the butt corner, usually a left or right inside
I am only replacing the broken Crown moldings, not all of it, for a customer. You say this Jig works for Left to Right installed/cut Molding, but will it work Right to Left installed/cut Molding (not sure what I will get into, 1930's house, I have to make the new molding)? I haven't started/quoted the job yet and was wondering if this Jig will work before I purchase it...
Roy F on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Roy, I haven't used it yet, but I did watch the DVD that came with it. The video did state that you should work left to right. It didn't expound any further than that. I personally think you could work right to left because you make your angle cuts on a compound miter saw and your only using the crown molding jig to cope your established cut. I hope this was helpful in you making your decision
Is the speed cope made of plastic or metal?
Gene H on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi:

The Rockler speed cope is extremely robust, it is made from aluminum and wood components. I toss
this thing in the back of my truck and use it almost everyday on the job. Its very durable and
I would consider it to be a commercial quality product.
Can you use it to cope baseboard?
Danny H on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Don't see why you couldn't cope baseboard but most of what you are trying to back bevel is a straight cut that I would do with the chop saw. The speed cope provides a stable platform for making back beveled complex curved cuts.
Will it do both right and left hand corners ?
CARLA J G on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Carla, it’s been a few years since I used it, but it does do both. It depends on how you place your materials. The speed cope comes with an instructional DVD which helped, but I had to watch it a few times. Hope this is helpful.
why would I need this tool if I bought the bench dog crown cut tool?
