How to make a cut in a cylinder in a 45 degree angle

I am trying to make a cut on a 12" D cylinder at a 45 degree angle and i am having a little trouble. I have projected the shape onto the curve and sketched it. Now to finish the cut do i need to scuplt that path or how do I go about doing this. I may even be going about this the wrong way.

 

I provided a screen print to try and and explain it a little batter. The half moon lookin sketch is what i am tring to cut out of the cylinder. i have already projected the surface lines on the cylinder, but get stuck at this point

 

 Any input would be great!

 

thanks,

 

Seth

I could be completely lost here, but check attached.

Exactly how will the feature be manufactured?

Yes, Emboss does work, but I need to Emboss the the radius (7.375 noted on picture) into the cylinder.

 

Does this make any sense? I may not be explaining it as thorough as I need to be.

Emboss should work for the rad. Did you try the "wrap to face" option?
