Hi

Drew this in CAD to check for you...


If you meant 840mm to the UNDERSIDE of the 55mm top plank of the dog bridge thingamy then :

Top mitres (on both the ramp and the table) are 72deg and bottom mitres are 36deg

If you meant 840mm to the TOPSIDE...

73deg and 33deg

If you've already drawn it to scale (often the easiest way) just transfer the angle to a sliding bevel and set the saw up to that. Make a couple of practice cuts with some spare timber, just a bit of batten will do, doesn't have to be the full width.


Totally agreed sliding bevel is the way to go. I've cut probably tens of thousand of angles in my time and there's barely a handful where knowing the actual angle has ever been needed. It's far to easy to overthink this whole thing.


I’m with you guys,it’s the way nearly every chippy I’ve ever know would do it too.

Thanks guys,

I worked it out again at dinner today and came out with the same numbers as Cantseeitfrommyhouse, thanks for taking the time to work it out.

Going to cut it on the table saw tomorrow morning.

Do like the sliding bevel idea ive actually got one that ardly ever gets used, im sure there will be a time thats going to come in handy now.

Thanks fellas.
