For long angle cuts a sled mounted in the mitre slot is often recommended. The mitre slot on my saw isn't very tight so I like this idea which does much the same thing against the rip fence instead.

Ken, I have the harbor freight version, and it is crappy. I think the one Hugh showed will be a little more precise, and may try to build one.

Ken, I found mine works with no issues. No doubt a sled version could be an improvement, but the one I have works well enough that I don't feel the need to improve upon it (for now).
