Cutting Torch Owner(s) Near Tulsa?

Howdy all. Does anybody near Tulsa/Owasso have a cutting torch(or plasma cutter) they'd be willing to let me borrow to cut some plate steel? It's no thicker than maybe a 1/4". I'm working on a little project at home. The steel i want to cut pieces off of is a steel girder that would be a bit more weight and bulk than i would want to try to load into the back of my truck. (It's probably 16in wide by 10 plus feet long, thick I beam.)

Thanks in advance.

You'll have to excuse Stan. He just finished the book "How win Friends with your Dry Wit!".

It would be one heck of a Plasma Cutter to go through 1/4 inch - I used one last week on a barrel, and they are best on thinner stock.

I'd use a torch if I was you...

PS: Something for ya...

Nah, it's nothing for a plasma cutter to cut 1/4"... the small shop I learned to weld in had a small one that would easily cut 3/4".

I dunno?
