I have this small but powerful and relatively versatile Dewalt.
What I would like to do is rip a piece of lumber but so that the cut side is at an angle to the other lengthwise side and not parallel to it. IOW, my one end needs to be 0 or close to it (which would make it a triangle) and the other side 3/8" across a length of about 6'.
It is easy to do angles on this saw but only if you are doing across and not lengthwise (using the little protractor guide) or the angle of the actual cut itself (using the protractor lever below the surface to the Dewalt logo). I do not see how to achieve the same effect lengthwise because the stationary guide to the right is fixed at a right angle.
