Welcome to the forum Les. CMT has 60* laser point and lettering bits. You could also use a 30* bit and run your work vertical to it on a router table.

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.

Welcome to the forum, Les.

You could use a 60° V-groove cutter or make sled to hold the work piece 60° to the router table.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

I'd be inclined to make a 60 degree jig with clamps to hold the work at an angle to the table. Old55's suggestion sounds most practical unless you can find a bit.

Welcome Les,

I just use my table saw, unless it is free hand cut on a large piece I would explore using a 30 deg. wedge base jig and a straight edge on the router /with a straight bit. Or just using a skilsaw tilted to 30 deg. and straight edge guide.
