Bench Rail

Bench Rail: By allowing me to test-fit every easing cut, the bench rail saves me a lot of trips between the miter saw and the staircase.

To set up the bench rail, I clamp it to the workbench so that the lower end is unobstructed. Then, using my easing protractor (which I've already set to cut the easing), I raise or lower the hinged arm until the protractor reads level and tighten the wingnut.

After first cutting the easing, I butt it up against the bench rail and use a torpedo level on the part of the fitting that is supposed to be level (the cap for a lower easing, or the top of the easing for the upper easing) to check the cut.
