Last year I made this miter sled strictly for the purpose of cutting bowl segments. The sled has four fences; one each, for six, eight, ten, and 12 sided segments. The angles are absolutely precision perfect. In the upper corner of each fence I placed a toggle clamp. This eliminates the necessity of getting your fingers close to the blade, as some segments are rather small. Ill be glad to share information on how to build this sled for anyone who is interested. I can’t think of a safer way to do this task.

This last picture shows the four test wedge assemblies to check the accuracy of my angles.
