i was going to use a grinder w/ cut off disc. My other options would be jig saw with metal cutting blade.

You can cut it off (at the collet end) if you leave enough material to still get a good grip on the shaft and actually have a way to cut carbide cleanly. Using a diamond cut off disc comes to mind, but keep the metal cool if you use some kind of abrasive cutter.
