Cutting a high speed fairing block

 Hi guys

Ive got a high speed fairing block for a B45 transducer that I need to have cut at about 20 degrees. Can anyone recommend someone around the Norther suburbs who you would trust to do it? Im sure most cabinet makers could do it but dont want to risk having the cut done on the wrong plane/angle.

Cheers

do you have access to a slide saw like a chippie would use ? I cut my own with one and it’s a fairly simple thing to do.

 Mark the angle and hit it with a planer or belt sander as above a slide saw or compound mitre saw. Im a cabbie installer i live in wanneroo got most of the tools that'll do the job besides a table saw (cutting angles is a big part of my job). Your welcome to come around and give it ago. Get yourself a few scrap pieces and try a few different tools options before jumping onto the real deal.

 Thanks Mark and Rob

I was hoping to absolve all responsibility and have someone else do it . I may take you up on your offer Rob. I'll just check a few more places first to see if they can do it for me.

Hadnt thought about the sliding compound mitre saw. Was so fixated on the band saw or table saw option that this slipped my mind.

i cut a piece of timber to the correct angle then screwed the fairing block to that then just made the cut with the saw set to the normal upright position, was easy and I could make sure the angle was correct before I made the cut, I may still have the block of wood if you want it.
