The splitter's bed design is similar to that of the two-way splitters from Northerntool.com . In effect, the cylinder is inside a piece of 6" square tube, and then that tube is inside another piece of square tube (can be fabricated from a piece of 8").
Admittedly, like you, I'm quite good with my grinder too, after many years of cutting autobody panels and the like.... As I mentioned above, if I'm unable to locate someone with a plasma, I'll probably end up using a grinder too.
As someone else mentioned, yes, O/A will certainly work too.... I just would like as clean of a cut as possible the first time. I know the precision is not a big thing with a splitter, but like most of you folks, the fun of a project is in the details....
