I need to cut a 127.5 degree angle on my mitre saw. I calculate that to 63.75 but I'm having difficuly transferring that to my mitre saw. I know 90 on my mitre saw is actually 0 but when I count back to 63.75 the angle is incorrect.

Help!

37.5°

Take 90 from 127.5 - should do it, (just looking at it in my head).

It's the other way round - 0 is 90.

If you cut a simple 45 - the angle on the other side of the timber is at 135°

Often if I’m cutting a non standard angle I’ll just put my sliding bevel against the angle I require and line the mitre saw up with the sliding bevel.
