Having trouble getting a slot into a piece of round tube.  Need a slot that goes in to 1.90" outside diameter tube, it will go up an inch, have a radius corner at 90 deg, follow around the tube for about 60 deg, radius corner and up for another inch.  please note that it needs to stay normal to the tube. a straight cut from a plane will skew the slot.  slot needs to be .440 inches wide. I have tried  swept cuts and all kinds of stuff. no luck.  any ideas?  here is an idea of the sketch, but it did not work for me.

note it is a 3d sketch, and is mostly on the face of the tube. verts are slightly off to get the radius turn to work. like .02 off the tube
