I turned the tank on it side and used my plasma and a come alongs snug cable to set the torch on and ride around the tank. Only had to move the come a long one tine brcause of the cranking mechinsm. Measured up from the concrete floor to get the cable level. My tank sprung when it was cut free, if I was to do it again I would run a 1/4" rod through the sides of the tank I was using and weld both sides to prevent the tank from springing open.
wear ear protection, a jig saw with the right blade might be easier to control.
Do not cut the tank with a torch or plasma cutter without purging with inert gas or filling with water. The heat will vaporize remaining liquid and create an explosive atmosphere inside the tank. Only use a sawzall if you can have someone keep soapy water on the blade the whole time you are cutting and a slower speed with good blades. This way no heat to vaporize the fuel. Oh a co2 extinguisher can be used as a purge gas if one is laying around plus nitrogen or argon will work also. Good luck..................

Why? To ensure you allowed enough air into the tank to get that perfect oxy-to-fuel explosive ratio? [/QUOTE] thats funny
