You sure the cut needs to be at 90 degrees?
Might be a reason the old mast has an angle cut with plastic wedges

What does the bottom of the alum mast currently have? Any metal shoe to re-enforce the bottom?

Re: cutting down aluminum masts

The mast I have cut down have had bolt on caps with most held in place with self tapping screws in about 8 places.
