Picked up an attachment for my drill and will do it  with that. Hopefully,
I'll be able to get this project done this year.  

For any sort of steel cutting my  preferred method is to use my 4.5" 
hand-grinder with a very thin cutting blade  (I think they're 1/8"). It'll cut 
thru just about anything including EHS guy  cable (very hard) in seconds.
        Second is an aggregate  steel cutting blade in a Skilsaw/circular 
saw and you probably already have one.  It's a little awkward at times but 
the blade is less than five bucks and again  will cut steel quickly. 
        I'm not sure what drill  attachment you are going to use.
