TigerStop, the global leader in linear positioning systems, announces Crown+MiterPro™ for SawGear. Crown+MiterPro is designed to dramatically simplify all angle cutting. It makes installing items such as crown molding a snap even for the novice. SawGear is a precise and rugged automated length measuring system which attaches to miter and radial arm saws. The new Crown+MiterPro feature will be included in every new SawGear, making it a simple process to cut and install all types of trim such as crown, base, shoe, casings, along with rafters and any other angle cutting. Crown+MiterPro reduces the loss of costly materials when inaccurate cuts are made. Some sophisticated crown materials can cost up to $75 per foot and one miscut can cost hundreds of dollars.

The software calculates difficult crown angles and lengths instantly; providing both the right angle and side to set a miter saw, along with the correct length for the part, ensuring the perfect part is cut the first time and every time.

“We just received a SawGear for a few jobs we are working on simultaneously and love it,” said Jon Beyer, owner BarkerBeyer Woodworking. “The tedious tasks of measuring, marking, and setting gauges is eliminated with the SawGear. And now with the Crown+MiterPro software, we are confident our guys will get it right every time. Most of our guys groan when asked to do crown molding, but with the SawGear and the Crown+MiterPro software, the whole crew is volunteering and excited.”

"SawGear is a disruptive technology for the construction industry,” said Spencer Dick, founder and president, TigerStop LLC. “Users are cutting framing labor by as much as 30 percent and crown installation time by at least 50 percent while improving overall quality. Construction times are being compressed while the contractor is making no compromises on the final product. When SawGear is used for framing, each subsequent trade finds that the ease of installing everything from drywall to HVAC systems goes quicker. Openings are dead square and level so that doors and windows go in as fast as you can screw them in; tedious leveling and shimming is virtually eliminated. Now, with Crown+MiterPro, the finish and trim are easy - even a novice can be trained to do quality work within a day.”

Dick continued, “SawGear has won numerous national awards for its innovation and productivity benefits. Now, with the addition of Crown+MiterPro, we’ve taken the pain and error out of cutting crown, base, siding, trim, and casing, along with any angled framing members from complex trusses to roof rafters. SawGear makes them all simple, and it adds up to savings of thousands of dollars in wasted material and time. We are exited by the impact the SawGear will have on the construction industry.and the increased affordability that will follow in housing costs.”
