Cutting 1' x 2" steel bar

I have some 1’ x 2" mild steel bar (not rectangular tube!). What’s the best saw to cut it on? Will my arm fall asleep waiting for the cold saw to make its way through something that thick?

I’d use the horizontal bandsaw.



I cut some 3/4” x 2 1/2 on the horizontal bandsaw recently and took less than a minute per cut with no effort required.


The horizontal bandsaw is like using an analog cnc.
