How-to cut steel beam ends

I have sloped steel w-beams connecting over HSS sq. columns - the colums and wall they are in are not perpindicular to the beams. (The intersect at an angle)


I have two questions. 1. What's the best way to cut the beam ends so that the cut end is parallel to column face and wall, and...2. how do I cut beam end face so that it is plumb cut to col. face and not perp. to beam slope?

Hi Shawn,


Try using Refernce lines to Trim the Ends of the Beams at the Columns Lines and tails.
