I have this jig or one similar.

First, I attached a 3/4” plywood face plate. There are holes for that. This allows you to cut all the way to zero without risking cutting the casting. So, you can cut on both sides and don’t need to flip around to cut the opposite side.

I also attached a digital readout (DRO) to get much more precise positioning.

I’ve got a thread about that somewhere.

I’m surprised it even goes to 45 deg. Tenons much over 30 deg. are not very strong since you are starting to lose the continuous grain that makes the tenon strong in the first place.
