    In 25 yrs Ive never had to tilt my butler and my machinery is in use.
    Is it the aesthetics you don’t like?

    Would they have cut one side of the v then indexed to the other side and cut then finished off the middle to square the root?
    No my trade but like to understand.

    Edit. Il shut up. That wouldn't work.

    In that first pic it looks like he is only roughing out the bottom of the cut. Must use a form tool to then get the shape ?

    there are many ways it could have been done, if it was me I would rough out as much metal as possible, levering enough for a finishing cut all around the profile. It’s also going to depend on the indexing setup as well, which will also dictate the process.
