Not sure I understand what you are asking? Are you saying your saw will only go 90 or something?

Otherwise you need a cabinet makers protractor or mitre finder. Simple tool of quality will be $20 on up to something like this for $200 if you want to impress your friends. I played with a great crown moulding Android app over the weekend if that is what is baffling you.

You can cut any angle you want with a chainsaw.

A little more detail (or pictures) with your question would help.

I do think we need to know more of what you are cutting, what you are trying to cut it with, and I guess why? I am just assuming trim of some kind.

Miter cuts are always 1/2 the angle of the wall angle etc. 45 degrees is
45divided by 2 = 22 1/2. If the miter is on the right put it in the miter saw upside down and cut the opposite end (left end). "upside down and backward" the old timers say.

I screw a block of wood to my mitersaw table that has a 45 precut on the end, then set the miter to the combined angle I need. If I need 67 degrees, I set the saw to 22. Combined with the 45 already on the block, I get the angle I need.

just as lone mentioned. if you need to cut a piece greater than the capacity of your saw simply shim the peice of wood so its creates the angle

another example of this is when cutting door casing. i always back cut my casing on a bevel of 1 degree so the face of the joint is air tight. this can be done by setting the saw on a 1 degree bevel or you can put a 1 1/16" sliver of wood underneath the peice of wood being cut

Good advice all. Also if the angle is just a degree or two most saws now seem to cut more than 45. Mine cuts 50 one side 55 the other. Must be for walls that are more out of square on one side of the corner?
