What is the tool used with a table saw to get the correct angle to cut from corner to corner? Wanting to get a 75 inch angled length board.

It's called a mitre gauge.

Sounds like the OP wants to cut furings, don't think a mitre guide will do that icon_rolleyes.gif

You can make a taper cutting attachment that is often used for table legs but at ocer 6ft long it will be too dangerous. Use a straight edge to mark corner to corner then feed it buy eye.

Or tack a 7" wide strip of ply to your 6x2 with one edge aligned corner to corner, set your saw rip fence to 7" and feed the ply/timber through the saw with the ply against the fence, this method will give a straighter cut.
