    This Greenlee hydraulic tool claims it will shear up to 5/8" rod (plus other shapes). https://www.greenlee.com/us/en/shearing
    Might be a little pricey.

      I see that Tormach has a bar fed bandsaw for less then $4,000.00, of course there is no way to know how well it works or if it works at all.https://tormach.com/machines/bandsaws.html

      We do not have a bar fed saw other then low paid laborers, set a stop, advance stock, close vice valve, advance blade then retract blade, repeat as needed.

      Two years ago I set a stop for a new guy with no experience at all, a 20 year old. 1 1/2" dia. aluminum round bars cut 1 9/16" long, showed him what to do, whilst keeping an eye on him running the first few I had a look at the work order, 13,000 parts.

      Saw to rough length
      Face mill, chamfer mill around the OD, drill and tap 1/4-20 X 1/2" deep.
      Face mill other side bringing finished length to 1 1/2"
      Chamfer mill OD
      Mill 1/4" wide X 7/8" deep slot across face
      Deburr

      To his credit he did not quit until they were finished.

      Near the end of the cutting he ran out of stock, someone had failed to allow for the 60+ feet that went into the chips from 13000 saw cuts (-:

            That looks pretty slick dian,I’m sure your familiar with the Pferd 40 thou thick zip blades there the best I’ve ever used.I use the 5” for Alumnium or Stainless on that little chop saw.

                Where was that? Amazon is much more. Or maybe a different "model". https://www.amazon.com/69948-Cut-Off.../dp/B079GRB43J

                    I still maintain that a cold saw is the way to go. Almost no burr at all, no heat, no sparks...

                      Ditto. Finished ends for most stuff on the initial cut is a big plus in my book.

                        I don’t know how happy a cold cut blade would be on some real hardened pins or dowels,my friend had a $180 oops with a new Fein Blade that he thought would cut a hardened shaft.He said it took about 2 seconds to destroy blade.

                          I know someone who tried to shorten an allen wrench with a HSS cold saw blade. It cut it, but the blade was sent out for sharpening the next day.
                          Why wouldn't it work on SS as long as you had the corrrect speed and feed combo?

                            Every cold saw I've ever used had a carbide tipped blade. Dunno why anyone would use HSS in one.

                              I'll say that again for emphasis: EVERY cold saw I've ever used had a fine-toothed, carbide-tipped blade in it, designed specifically for steels. I have no idea why anyone would use a HSS blade, except that's what the saw comes with just to get you started.

                                If the blade was not carbide tipped then he was doing it wrong.
