The Compound Miter Excel Program will
complement the Crown Molding & Trim book by providing instant calculations for all of the items covered in the book. The Excel Program contains all the charts and tables and can also be downloaded on a hand-held or lap top computer and taken to the job site with you.
(Note: This program is not a stand alone application. You must already have Microsoft Excel 97 or higher installed in order to run the Miter Excel Program, "Microsoft Works" spreadsheet will not run this program.)
If you do not have Excel 97 or higher, you can download a free program called OpenOffice to run the excel program at http://download.openoffice.org/
Input the corner angle, the crown slope angle or any information required, press enter, and the correct miter angle & blade tilt angle are displayed.
It's just that simple.
