cutting metal tile transition strip at 45 degrees


Hello, I am trying to cut two tranition strips at 45 degrees to make a 90 at a corner of my tile. However I tried to use a hacksaw and it does a hack job, hence the name I guess. What would be the best way to get a clean cut at 45 degrees?

I don't really have anything besides the hacksaw, I need to find someone with the right tool.

Jb,
without having any other tools, you could take a small block of wood and some emery cloth or sandpaper and sand each piece till you get a nice edge on each and they match up.

dont know how to cut it, but just make sure you firmly attach the sharp corners to the floor. they put a right angle strip around the tile by my front door in my current house, and more than once we have tried to step onto the tile and accidentally stepped on that right angle, it wasnt attached properly and has sliced our feet open at least four times since we moved in in 2009
