      A 45 degree end cutter, tilt the head 22.5 degrees, hold the work flat, cut with the Y axis and advance each serration with the Xaxis.

          This would probably be the easiest way to get what you need. Pretty easy to grind up a toolbit to the proper angle for use in a flycutter with the head tipped at an angle.

            lots of ways to skin a cat as they say That nutcracker was my Christmas present to my wife, she was very happy with it which is the main thing! Then she scored about 30b of pecans so we all worked in shifts to get through them. They tasted real nice

              Perfect job for your mill, as long as you can nod the head to 90 degrees. Or for a horizontal.

                    Looks like you are making a planemaker's float or rasp.

                        Good result, a lot of patience required, though.

                          So my hare brained idea here is to inset the rack as it were into a aluminum bar, and the opposing teeth into a aluminum slot piece. A tilt to lock under force mechanism almost like one of those bar clamps with the lightly serrated edges, but with actual engagement. Might work for the application I'm working on, might not, I guess I will find out.
