I bought mine pre-cut, but I think the best way is with a plasma cutter (if you can get your hands on one) or angle grinder.

Wait for it...wait for it...





























Some around here would say a metal drill and a sawz-all is not the way to do it...but I let my end product speak for itself...

It's scary to think that BierMuncher made his millions as a fabricator on the Air Bus project for American Airlines!
