To get the thinnest, smoothest kerf I could, I decided to use a Dremel and their tiny cutting wheels.
Yes, a plasma cutter (pun not intended) would have been faster, as would a larger air grinder
with a cutting disc, but both would have given a rougher cut and would have taken more work afterwards.
This method was fairly slow, but it was controllable, and was quite adequate for the
approximately 20-ga stainless. One tip, however; Dremel-brand cut-off discs last better
than twice as long as cheap-no-name discs. Spring for the good stuff.
