I've run miles of crown. All of that stuff has always struck me as pointless gadgetry. Other than a coping saw and files, the only tool I've ever come across that is really a bacon saver on crown is the Collins coping foot. Its worth enough to buy a separate jigsaw just to dedicate to it if you're a trimmer. The foot is only like 20 or 30 bucks. Learning curve is about 2 minutes.
I know while at LHTC we had the universal ones as well as some with a notch out specifically to fit the Trion. I think dedicating a Festool jigsaw to coping though is like dedicating a Bentley to toting kids around the city zoo. Why?
Worthwhile though if you just want to have 1 and trade the foot.
