It sounds like you are trying to use the same height of edgebanding for a 90 and 45 degree application.

Once cut on an angle, the height of the banding will need to increase to meet the new hypotenuse length. 

Is this the problem, or did I misinterpret what you are saying?

As Ken mentioned, you'll need at least 1-1/8" edge banding.

Some day I'll get the Conturo table. Hoping to find a used one....

both are correct... i was trying to use the 3/4 edge band on my 45 degree because i'm cutting the long point back 1/4 to 90 degree so i don't need the entire hypotenuse covered in edge band. plus i don't have 1 1/4 edge band.. the solution was to do the entire 1 1/4 edge band which is the smallest setting you can do 30mm for the 3/4 set on a 45 and then cut the square edge and the edge after. then edge band square section.... [eek]
anyway resolved thanks for input
