    Yes plasma is cheap and cuts stainless all day. Use it for miles of cuts daily. Just got done. But it will compromise the integrity of tubing depending on application. That's all I'm saying.
    I have hole saws up to 6". They work well for me.

      You can do a hole saw through one side, you plunge as deep as possible till you bottom, cut that portion off with a cutoff wheel, then continue. Much more accurate and faster than rejigging to come from the other side

        Or you can make the cuts before you start the notch. A band saw or hacksaw even will do the job. I prefer that method but either accomplishes the same thing.
