Thickest, stuckest seat post

so, the find of the day turns out to have the thickest and very stuck seat post I have encountered. To make matters worse, is about 6-7 inches into the seat tube. This Reynolds 531 frame may not make it...

First I started with Drano, no luck. Then I cut it off and had planned to cut it out and discovered just how thick the side walls are...

I have read the lye ideas, prob not something I would want to try. Mostly interested in cutting it out, but I don't think my sawzall blade will fit. Maybe bore it out with a drill first? other ideas?
