Default Rotate an eject that is not axis aligned

Hi everyone (that should be object)
I have a cylinder made button that is set at an angle - and I need to rotate it along the central long axis of the cylinder - in the past I have realigned it to the main axes - rotated it - then tilted it back - is there and easier way - I have quite a few tilted buttons to rotate...

in the utils widget - use the custom axis. Select two vertices, press the set button and then you can rotate around that axis.
