Not to be redundent of you, but I believe I can trisect any arbitrary

angle there is with a rather simple way of doing it too, all I have to

do is trisect a 90 degree angle in a way that it also trisects my

arbitrary angle, so, as you say, a 60 degree angle can be trisected,

and by how I do it's rather easy, soon as I can get this out in the

open I'll post back here with detailed instructions on how to do it
