A good 12 inch hacksaw with a bi-metal blade should make short work of it.

What are you planning to do here? Maybe we can give you a work-around so you don't even have to cut the fitting....

Hacksaws and a set of files are all I use for cutting metals. Use the right blade like JSR suggested, and you'll be through it in no time.

90 pulls a minute?


Only if you're a slow wimp :D
