Hey /diy/, how would you recommend I cut this where my fingers are? I have access to a metal shop but haven't been in there for about 4 years. It's stainless steel.
A file or some grinding paper. I'd go with an angle grinder, it's much easier.
But I suppose you could use a metal band saw, but they move fairly slowly, and your soup stirrer or whatever looks fairly unwieldly, so clamping it down might be difficult.
