I purchased windows with the face flange but they are too large. If I cut the face flange off they will be perfect. What do I use to cut the 5/8" flange off each side?

Vinyl windows for "new construction" can usually have the nail fin cut off with a knife or saw. Then you install the window using the replacement or upgrade instructions. Usually consisting of screws in the sides, insulation and shims.
