    You may have to have it done on a milling machine.

      You can do it with your torch, but it is still tricky. You'll need the right size tip, and the the right gas pressure, this is critical here.

      Oh, yeah....cover up your shoes

      Set up a straight edge to help keep your torch steady.
      Start by shaving, it and continue each shave pass not digging too deep, about a half kerf. Don't let the cut go so deep for the top of the material to fall in back ot the kerf. The material will eventually get hot enough to have you making smooth passes. The hotter it gets, it will cut smoother. Have your fire extinguisher handy!!

        15 degree angle

        If I am reading this correctly, you need to bevel the stock the long way.
        What I would do here, if it is for a component piece to a weldment, is to air-arc the material to the approximate dimensions, then dress with grinder.
        Granted , having the piece machined would make it more visually attractive, but if you are just going to weld the piece into something, and never see that side again, who cares how the material was removed.
        If you are steady with a torch, a new cutting tip goes a long way in helping make clean cuts.
        Make the cut towards the open side of the angle, otherwise trying to bevel from thin to thick on the waste piece becomes a problem.
        (You would be holding the torch on the side of the angle where the material is thickest). I hope I have been clear enough, sometimes what I say is not really as clear as I would like it to be. Ed
        work safe, always wear your safety glasses.

            Use a chop saw! Or put a friction blade on a circular saw and build a wood guide to cut it at the angle.

              OMS......... NEVER CAUGHT MY SHOE ON FIRE, PANTS ABSOLUTELY...... HOWEVER I'VE DANCED AROUND THE SHOP MANY TIMES WHEN (WEARING THE WRONG LOW CUT SHOES) SPARKS GET INSIDE THE SHOE............ MAN I DANCE REAL GOOD TOO................. SMALL CUTS WILL WORK BUT MAKE SEVERAL.....IF MIKE IS CLOSE, HAVE HIM MACHINE IT........IF NOT IMPROVISE.. BUT BE SAFE.......CO 2 AND CHEMICAL FIRE EXTINGUISHER'S ARE NOT A BAD IDEA........................BE SAFE................DON'T START FIRE'S NOW........AND HOW BIG IS THE BUCKET ...............ROCK

                cutting teeth

                OMS,

                Did you ever get those teet cut? I was thinking one might drill many modest size holes laterally (square to the sides and thru the full width) along the intended cut line. Connect the holes with a saw or modest cutting operation, then grind grind grind. Or let the rocks and soil of usage smooth it out.

                I have a drill press but no milling machine. Also have a oxy-ace cutter but no fire proof shoes (and I'd probably need them since it has been a long time since I flame cut anything).

                  bandsaw

                  Yea it looks like the best suggestion is to bring it by Mike's shop and mill or use whatever he has but my two cents is to use a vertical bandsaw any one would do and build a cutting jig from wood or whatever here is a crude picture of what I mean of course I may have misunderstood what you are trying to do but I had fun drawing anyway

                  goodtimes

                    Thanks for all the INPUT here on this.

                    rayflashburn, thanks for the idea but thats not how I need it cut. I would not need a jig to cut it. I need to take to 2X 1 1/2 lay it on its side ( 1 1/2 ) and keep the 2 inch width and cut a 15 degree angle on the back side to give to tooth relief so it will cut.

                    Mike Thanks for the offer. Right now its in a freind of the family's shop to be milled tommorow moring. I will have to try to get a pic of one before I install it here.

                    Thanks once more
