SolidWorks 2014 Half Shear / Semi Shear issue

Hello SolidWorks forum !


I am using SW2014 to re-construct side plate sections of a vintage recording console, I have drawn out the sections, and I have tried to use a custom form tool to produce the relevant half shears used to mate with the respective ISEP rail profile.

But, every time I use the form tool, the stopped face punch side is correct, but the 'extruded' section is deformed incorrectly.
