Acute Miter Saw Trick

As a trim carpenter, I sometimes need to cut angles that are more acute than my miter saw will allow. Most miter saws won't cut beyond 50°, but sharper angles are often required, especially when trimming out stairs. More acute angles can be achieved by using a fence block that has been cut to the complementary angle, which is arrived at by subtracting the desired angle from 90°.

For example, say you need to cut a 60° angle. Begin by subtracting 60 from 90, which yields 30°. Cut a short length of 2x4 material at 30° and clamp it to the miter saw fence with the long edge against the fence. With the saw's miter gauge set at 0°, place one end of your workpiece against the 30° end of the fence block, and clamp the opposite end to the saw table. The resulting angle cut will be the difference between the angle of your fence block and 90°.
