here we go...again!

In the world of woodworking tools zero degrees is 90 degrees.
So when you set your saw at "0" you are going to get a cut that is 90 degrees from the surface. If you set your saw at 30 degrees, you will get a 60 degree bevel. The result when measured by a protractor is 60 degrees, since 90 minus 30 is 60.

that's a good tip

The drawing shows "acute" angles on the workpiece, as well as obtuse. Acutes are less than 90 degrees, obtuse angles are greater than 90 degrees. Small point, but important for clarity. :smile:
Acute angles less than 45 degrees are what would require the method above. JMO.
