Depends on how accurate you want the cut.
Seems to be a bit of expense to rent a chop saw with an abrasive blade
You can lop through it with a hack saw, a recriprocating saw or even an
7 1/4" circular saw with an abrasive or toothless special-purpose metal
Or, you can spring for a large pipe cutter, one of those things where you
turn, crank a half-turn, make another turn until what amounts to a rotary
essentially wedges the two pieces apart. Consult your local plumber.
Other options include the "blue tip wrench " (cutting torch...HI!) or the
welder equivalent which involves turning it up as far as it will go and
way through. (M E S S Y!!!....hi!) You may wish to see if the local
garage has a tow
truck with a cutting torch on it.
As a last ditch, drill a series of 1/4" holes where you want the cut to
be made around
the circumference and chisel or hack saw the spaces between the
Even more options include a 4" right angle grinder with a "cut off wheel"
make a cut, about an inch long, rotate the stock, make another cut and so
Please wear goggles and ear protection.
