You can make a passable substitute for thermite easily and cheaply from
powdered aluminium and iron oxide. You can light it with a blow-torch if
you're lucky or with an oxy-acetylene torch with little effort. Make sure
you've got it all contained in a ceramic crucible and be ready to jump
back when it ignites - the temperature during combustion is a few
thousand degrees. It's non-explosive, but it might spit and pop a bit
from gas bubbles and such. You'll be left with a large chunk of hot
iron and not much else.

you think I've made it onto the terrorist watch lists yet? ]
