Miter Cuts greater than 45

I own a DeWalt 706 miter saw that is great. It cuts up to 48 deg angles right and left however I need to make a 52 deg cut for some roof trusses and not sure what is the best way.

Should I create some sort of jig or just end up cutting the 14 cuts (7 trusses) by hand?

Thoughts and Ideas much appreciated.

HELP!

i have done roof trusses and found that the best thing to do is cut them by hand. cut your first one than use it for a template. make sure you use only one as the template because otherwise you will notice a big difference if you start using different templates. good luck
