What is the best way to cut metal?

There are virtually an endless number of ways that you can cut steel.  Some ways are fast, some ways are precise, some ways are loud, and some ways are cleaner than others.  I put together this video highlighting 5 of the more common ways that one would go about judo chopping metal in half at their home shop. I go over cutting with a cold saw, bandsaw, chop saw, plasma torch, and a cutting disk.  You’ll be able to see some of the pros and cons to each of the cutting methods, and if you watch until the end of the video you’ll see all the cuts lined up next to each other so you clearly see the difference in cut quality.  Do you have a favorite way to cut steel?
