    The 1230LC saw base or blade does not rotate, but the fence does.
    When you need to cut long pieces with an angle cut on the end you set the saw down on the shop floor.
    Then you have a wooden block cut to the same size as the measured distance from the floor to the top of the saw base....

    I have owned one for years.

    The other choice is to...
