I have a Rocklear Miter sled. It goes to 50. I need 70 degrees. So I camped my old craftsman adjustable taper jig to the fence and got more angle extension. This seemed to work well as long as the pieces were not too short.
Any one Have better methods? This one is limited.

What ever it takes to get the job done butI think the reciprocal cut of 70 degrees is 20 degrees.

Place the wood against a scrap piece of wood so the wood is 90° to the miter gage. Then set the miter gage to 20° and cut. This is more easily done on a RAS or miter saw, not a table saw.
