I have done the chop saw method, and I have a harbor freight notcher. If the notcher fits the angle that I want, and the piece of tube, I prefer use that, compared to the chop saw.

THe only issue I have had with mine, is out of the box, it was not hitting perfectly into the center of the tube. (the center point of the clamp was a little off, compared to the centerline of the drill bit). I have one cheap HF drill press that usually I keep the notcher bolted into at all times with a 1-5/8 or 1-3/4 hole saw in at all times as a semi-dedicated notcher. Makes it a lot more convenient if its already set up. I use my mill for drilling 99% of the time anyway.

Here is a great site where you can print out a paper template.
You can adjust the tubing diameter, thickness and angle.
