    I think you would want a small bandsaw made for metal cutting. There are many made depending on how good of one you would want and your budget. Below is a picture of a simple one. For 4 x 7 you'll need more machine than the small semi-portables which in most cases can only do about 4 x 5 or 4 x 6 max. This one can cut off at 90 degrees up to 7 x 12, but normally you wouldn't want to use it above 6 x 10 or so. The issue is if you would use such a machine enough to help it pay for itself.

      Porta bands are not big enough and the pictured saw is not at all portable. I assume you want to take it to the job site. Get a 14" cut off saw. Will be straighter and quicker than a sawsall, but will still have to clean up the burr on the edge.
