Has anybody cut there GrillGrates?  I was wondering what tool you used to do so.

    Plasma cutters cut steel and cast iron like butter.

    There is a more than one way to skin a cat, but I would think the most cost effective for you may be a sabre saw with a metal cutting blade. Definitely not as cool as a plasma cutter, but a lot easier on the wallet.

  • Hack saw, sawzall or even a grinder

    I used an old blade on my bandsaw.  GrillGrates also recommends a miter saw with carbide blade but I only have one blade for mine and didn't want to risk dulling it.  Aluminum is actually quite easy to cut with most wood working tools.
