methods to cut normal to a cylinder

I would like to cut a profile normal to a cylinder to replicate a milling operation with a part on a rotary table. What i have done is use a wrap function because it seems it would be a quick method but not really sure how to locate the profile on the cylinder exactly right the first time. Would it be better to do a swept cut along a path and not mess with wrap?

 

Looking for some tips- either other methods or locating sketch so that the profile with a wrap will be where you want it once it is wrapped on surface. Thanks
