I see you’re mostly looking for a fence to attach to a plane to help with getting 90 degree edges. The Lee valley fence (and I think the vintage Stanley’s) will only work if the side of pour plane is reasonably square to the sole. So might want to check whatever plane you’re hoping to use it with.

However, for small stock, I find it is simplest to do what another commenter above mentioned, and simply math plane the pieces you are trying to joint. If you do that, the angle of the edge doesn’t matter, as the pieces will complement each other to result in a flat panel.

Here’s a link that describes the process:
