lol.... yep, I drive my wife nuts w/my mechanical machinations re. EZ...... I'll do a bit of 'chicken-scratching' on a grimy, pre-used notepad; then commandeer her attention as I seek to explain to her what I've 'sketched'.... all to no avail, of course, but she humors me regardless... what an amazing woman....

Re. angles on the EZ-1: there are many variations on the theme. Pic shows two versions of the same thing: lower slotted 'fence' is held in place by a piece of EZ connector w/a knob; also anchored w/a smart clamp; angle is set to 10˚. Upper 'fence' is a piece of ply w/a hole drilled thru it to allow the EZ connector-stud to pass thru it; angle is set to 30˚. Speed squares are only in the pic to show the setting of the fences- obviously, remove them once the angles are set.

Using this kind of set-up for angle cutting is, for me, fast, precise, and repeatable. I'm sure others have set up their own options; I'm hopeful we'll get a bit more input to your question.
