sheet metal: oblique extruded cut

SW2010 SP3.0

 

I'm modeling up some old parts from hand drawings from the 70's.

 

One of the parts is bent from 1 inch plate, which makes me want to model it as sheet metal.

 

As far as I can tell tho, SW will only let me cut the sheet metal perpendicular to the face, but I need to cut 5 deg from normal.  Cutting at an angle just seems to make a larger normal cut.

 

Is there a way to make an oblique cut in a sheet metal part while keeping the ability to unfold?

 

Thanks,

 

Brent
