Default Angle groove on a router table?

Hi all, I've been using a handheld router Dewalt D26204K with a shop made jig to route an angle groove but i'm looking to upgrade to a router table and wondered the best way of doing this? Maybe a wedge attached to the fence that it would run along? Any ideas would be great as I dont want to over complicate it.

thanks

The wedge will work as long as the groove goes all the way through and you can hold the work firmly attached to the wedge. More info and maybe a photo of one you've already done would help. It would also be nice if we had a name to refer to you by.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Yep the groove goes all the way through. The component is 220 x 120 mm x 25mm and the groove is about 25mm from the edge. I'll be making hundreds of these so need a way to make easy safe and repeatable cuts. I was thinking of a sled that runs in the T Track slot and has a wedge at one end for the component to sit on then a toggle clamp to hold it in place.

I'm Dave by the way

This fence will chop a sample to almost any angle.
If the cutter is small and shallow, the cuts will be blind, also at any angle.
They can be stopped as well.
The carriage slides on 4" oak beams, clad with 1/4" thick phenolic.
No metal on metal.

Dave I would just attach a piece to the fence that would support that piece at the right height and then clamp a straightedge to the table for the other side so that the work piece stays firmly against the fence. If you click on my Uploads button (down below my user name) you'll see the home made fence I am using. The faces come off quickly and slide together or apart to keep the opening close to the size of the bit. With this design you could have one set of faces for routing this piece and still be able to quickly and easily replace them with standard faces for regular routing.

If it is an angle groove you want why not do it on a table saw.
