My earlier comment was about alternative to a coping sled. The Grripper is a great safety device and could be used with Marc's method as well. Wish I'd kept the money rather than buy the coping sled. The sled is more challenging to get cuts right than the simpler method. Marc's method works really well in part because you're working good side down, so all cuts are referenced from that surface.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I am thinking this wouldn't work for vertical, but do you think this would work with a lock miter bit? Rockler says it needs to be used with a router bit with a bearing... I like what this guy did with the fence.

An easily made TALL fence as shown is very useful. To make it zero clearance I clamp a sheet of cheap thin MDF and draw it through the bit.
