If I need to make an 80º cut into the end of some plywood, what's the best way?

Should I make a jig that allows me to stand up the material, along my table saw's fence, and then just cut at 10º into the end? (Is this safe?)

Thanks.

that's about the only way.

Make a tall extension fence that clamps to your original fence and then tilt the blade over to 10 degrees. Use a zero clearance throat plate or the thin edge MAY fall into the opening. :yes:

If the piece is longer than your table saw at the rear, use an outfeed extension or support to keep it from tilting down after the cut is made OR during.
A featherboard in front of the blade will keep it more stable.
It can be done safely, IF you do all the above.

Yes, that would work. Make sure your saw is set up with a ZCI, a taller fence for support, and a featherboard to keep the board against the fence.

or a circular saw set to 80 would also do it

OK ... maybe I misunderstood the question ... with no pictures, I assumed the OP was talking about the one on the left. But from your responses, I guess you must be talking the one on the right.

Never mind. :thumbsup:
