How about a shooting board? They can be made for 45 and 90 degrees, maybe a 45 bevel? Just a thought…

Almost always a lower cost alternative, even better if you already have a hand plane that can work well for you on a board.

I looked for an old Lion, couldn’t find one, they had a new made one somewhere at about half price. I bought it, and to be truthful haven’t spent much time with it. Plan is to get the shop done, and put some time in with it.

My other thought for you is a dedicated 45 sled, and an extremely agile tenon jig, so you can 45 a standing edge on the TS. Both are doable, and using a great crosscut blade, can give crispy corners.
