If your installing casing on a door, put the head on first, then you can cut the legs a liitle too long and check your joints and make nescessary adjustments, (the legs usually end up a 1/4" to 3/8" off the subfloor. Hope this helps
I think this makes sense. I'm trying to locate the instruction manual for my Delta 10" Compound Miter Saw (36-075).
As far as doing doors, I'm ok. In this case it's the trim around a window.
Someone suggested that if I get the two sides cut exactly the same and the top and bottom cut exactly the same everything should fall into place?
