  • Cutting round stock at a angle?

    Im making the secondary mirror holder for my telescope, I'm looking for the best way to cut a piece of 1.5 aluminum at a 45 degree angle?

    I have a mill, lathe, angle blocks all kinds of stuff.

    Witch brings up another concern for me..... How precise does the angle have to be? Id like to know in case I need to farm it out..... Thanks for any help!!!

    Mount at 45 deg in the vise and mill it. That's how I do it anyway, but I don't need the precision you might.
