Clever Way to Cut 60 Degree Angle

I need to cut a 60 degree angle with a cutoff saw whose range only goes to 45 degrees.  Any suggestions for techniques?

Cut a 15 degree wedge put against the fence and set the saw for 45

Add a 15° wedge to the face of your 45° guide.

Flip the workpiece over and cut to 30 degrees?

Rich: Interesting idea so obvious that it may not work but worth trying.

Rich: Good idea but this would require putting the workpiece perpendicular to the back fence, so easy way to clamp it down. (I tried.) Time write a slope program for the mill.
