  Sometimes, you just have to go to SEARS and buy something close and 
take the bandsaw and TIG to it.

   SEARS because you will cut it up right away so no need to spend money 
on high quality and SEARS wrenches are not bad to begin with.  Bandsaw 
it up to what you need and TIG weld exactly the way you need it.

  Sorry, not much help but my method works quite well.
