 We have been bandsawing 304 for the past 15 years. Bi-metal blades, and SLOW blade speed, and WAX the blade as you cut, and you can saw .065 all day long with a bandsaw.

If you contact him, he will make custom size however you want.
He said he could even cut an image in the steel with 0 distortion.
It is expensive though, he charges by the: 1"x1"

  18.  NO skip tooth or anything different. Just small teeth. HAVE to run the blade speed SLOW.  We buy the coils from Do-all and weld them ourselves.

I bet the band saw works perfect for cuting tubes also. I've been using a chop saw and or a pipe cutter. The pipe cutter does great on the inner tube but on the outter tube its no good because of the way it pushes the blade into the metal to cut it...
I'm going to fit my small band saw with a new 18tooth blade.
