I don't know of a faster way. About 3 seconds to trace the pipe and 15 seconds with a cutting torch if you are slow, and you are ready to weld.
The oil is all in Texas, but the dipsticks are in D.C.

I guess it comes down to how much you want to invest in tools. I have a bi-metal (use lots of oil) hole saw set for 3/4"-4", a joint jigger (sort of expensive), and 12 ton tube bender.

If you want to do it cheaply and still have a fairly nice fishmouth, get a compass, draw your circles on cardboard, cut out, transfer to your tubes with magic marker. Then get a skill saw with a METAL blades (the ones at Home Depot are okay) and cut them out (slowly). Just make sure the blade does not hit the inside of the pipe. If the blade is too long when the Skill saw is in the extended position, just cut the blade end off until it fits inside the pipe, IF it can't fit though both sides at once.

A 6" metal blade should be fine though if it is 1/8" mild steel tubing.

You mean a jigsaw or saber saw right?

Might want to paint it bright orange so noone rams it, kind of matches the background.

Looks like a nice patch of land there!

Rebocardo, you would have hit the chain that is at the beginning of the field first... :D

on the main road you must turn right into an old field, I have a chain setup there for looks, once you cross the field and head towards the woods, my gate is in the middle of the hill.

But I do plan on painting the gate, just not this year  :)
