Hi everyone I'm a newbee here.
Name is Mike friends call me bijou.

I have a dilemma and I wonder if anyone might have an answer for it.

I have a project that call for 53d,76d and 80d angles and all I have is a 12" Dewalt miter box saw.I am working with 1-3/4" lattice and it is a small project (only 6" long).I tried using a 45d triangle and setting the saw to add up to said angles and they kind of small work pieces plus I would like to make quite a few of them.Does anyone have any ideas?
Any help would be appreciated.

And again Hello to All

Thanks
Bijou

You could also try a variable set square getting the angles with a protractor. For really accurate angles may need to use a Wixey.

Pictures of the pieces you already made might help
but I think you are on the right track but instead of a triangle use a piece of 1x6 cut at 45d clamped down, this gives you more of a fence and you won't have to try and hold on to both pieces.
If you need more support add an auxiliary table under the 1x6, it would also be safer if you also added a clamp to hold down your pieces,
I'm thinking a toggle clamp would work well.
