Default Best way to cut

The man wants the legs cut off of these aluminum channels which are three feet long and less than a 1/8" thick. they are going to show when done so he wants them nice and neat. He wants the leg cut as close as possible to the main part of the channel. My options are a mill or a table saw. The saw seems a bit scary and the mill would take some setup. If I use the mill what would be the best cutter to use? All ideas are welcome.

1 three foot long
