I REALIZED I WASNT SPECIFIC ENOUGH IN PREVIOUS QUESTION. I HAVE 3 IDENTICAL PIECES OF 3/4' MDF THAT MEASURES 21'L X 9'W. I NEED TO CUT ALL THE 21' SIDES AT 60 DEGREE ANGLES TO JOIN.

Still not sure exactly which way you need to cut, either by tilting the blade (60 degrees off vertical) or rotating the miter guage.

Either problem is solved by making the complementary cut (in this case 30 degrees) and reversing the direction of approach.

30 degrees cut from 90 will leave 60...

Tilt your blade to 30 degrees and turn on your saw. Remember, to flip your board first. Your correct 30 degree setting, will give you a 60 degree cut. Cut a test one first . I have assumed you want to make a bevel cut.
