EASYCOPER is a durable plastic aid, designed by a professional carpenter out of a need to simplify the cutting and coping of crown molding. The product allows the user to use a jig saw instead of a regular hand-held coping saw, reducing wrist and hand stress, as well as arm fatigue, according to the company. EasyCoper is designed to handle up to 5-1/2" molding and is pre-drilled so it can be fastened to the end of a work bench. Once the molding is mitered, it is placed in the jig face up. To cope the molding, follow the profile of the stock with the saw just like you would within a hand saw. The jig forces you to cut at the correct angle every time and provides good visibility of the piece while working it. The EasyCoper is priced at $34.95. Contact: EasyCoper, P.O. Box 14248, Greensboro, NC 27415. Tel: 336-375-9401.
