My board shear is an iron-top Jacques. Magnets can be used as fences to
accurately cut numerous pieces to the same angle.
If your board shear is not a metal top, you could purchase a sheet of
galvanized metal from a hardware store and again use magnets.
Otherwise, you might try to use a piece of (binder?) board that fits against
the left-hand fence and would be cut to an angle. The material to be cut
would align with the subsitute fence and then get cut.
Hope this helps.
