Filling the gap at the outside corner of a 45 degree framed wall


I've seen that the best way to fill the outside corner at a 45 degree wall is with a stud ripped and placed at the corner.
Problem is, I don't have a table saw. I have a chop saw, skill saw, etc.
Does anyone know of an angle-type product you can buy to bridge that gap and make it strong enough to sheetrock over?
Thanks.

Then use your circular saw and something as a fence.
hint: rip the studs from both joining walls at 22

No such thing, A 2 X 4 can be ripped with a ciruler saw, you have to go slow and it works best with an edge guide that's attached to the saw, but can be done free hand. You use your index finger as a guide under the saws plate as a guide.
It does not need to be perfect.
Your going to need an outside sheetrock corner anyway that will cover the gap.
Most often I just leave the 2X's without any bevel, the sheetrock will just cover the gap.

I don't agree that you need to fill the corner unless you think it's going to be under unusual stress from traffic and needs that support. You're talking about like 1.5" of edge of each sheet. The 45-degree cornerbead should be adequate support and protection for most purposes.
