Read on to see how to enter, but first, here’s some info on the prize…

If you’ve ever tried installing crown molding before (and you’re not a carpenter), you know how tough it can be. No matter how many times you measure the angles, somehow things still come out wrong. Well, the MiterMate tries to solve that problem by giving you an easy, simple way to make accurate miter cuts. You just use the MiterMate’s angle finder to measure against the wall:

Then you transfer that measurement to the saw:

Notice the difference with traditional miter saws: the saw blade is fixed, and the rails move instead. Then cut away:
