Just thought I would share something that some of you might not be aware of… or possibly are aware but skeptical:
We often have to install crown molding on top of full overlay cabinetry that does not go all the way to the ceiling, so most often there is a piece of ogee mold flat on top of the wall cabinnet hanging just over the edge, then some blocking strips on top and behind the crown to allow face nailing the crown across the front and mitered around inside and outside corners. This results in two mitered joints one directly over the other. Stain grade hardwood requires that these miters be extremely tight and well… perfect.
We have found that using the EXTREMELY fast set (almost instant) and STRONG 2-part FastCap 2P-10 kits and a pin nail gun is the absolute ticket for speed, accuracy, strength and very minimal touchup. Never has a corner miter blown up with this (versus fairly often with using an 18 gauge brad gun and good old carpenters glue or any of the tight bonds (they still have their place)).
We got a sample from a local guy that repairs prosthetic limbs with this stuff (if that tells you how accurate and strong you can be with it).
Hope this helps somebody.
