A Snag

I have hit a snag, one of those situations where I am at a standstill until I can figure this out.

I need to glue some beveled boards together to make a 60° angle. I need to make some kind of jig that will do the job, but I have not yet devised the setup.

One possibility might be something like a fletching tool used for putting feathers on the shaft of an arrow. Another idea is to have something similar to the Bessey Right Angle clamp. Only this would form a 60° corner instead of 90°.

Now, as I write this, it occurs to me that I can set my jointer fence to form a 60° angle with the bed. This could be a possible solution. If I get a chance in the next few days, I will give this a try. Meanwhile, if you have ideas, feel free to leave me a comment.
