Using a Leigh Super Jig to route angled through dovetails

I’m making a project that requires a 3 deg angle at one end of my project. I have a Leigh Super Jig 18 that I usually use to route my dovetails. I located an article on Leigh’s website about cuing angled dovetail but it was using a D4 jig. My question is has anyone out there done this with the Leigh Superjig? Or is there someone out there that has hand cut angled dovetails?

Cutting the 6” and 4” ends are easy, it’s going from the 8” to the 6” ends that’s the hard part which needs to be angled so there’s no gap. I also figure the small end doesn’t really need to be angled but the larger end has to be so there’s no gaps in the dovetails. Any ideas?
