cluster do come with a transdorm node, so you can chage the rotational axis, move along that axis, you press insert and move the pivot, just like in any other transform node.

No Lestliness, you're thinking of just moving the pivot. He wants to adjust the orientation of the node, meaning the XYZ axis.

Ya know haiku, I know how to do it I just can't think of it off hand right now because it's not something I do very often. I'm not in front of Maya at the moment, but when I am I'll hit ya back on it.
