tools for cutting sheet metal - Mon Jul 12 2021 03:38 PM
So far on my project truck I have done all of the sheet metal cutting with cutoff wheels in a grinder. This seems OK for most things, but not always. I'm curious to know what alternatives you guys use. I realize that a plasma cutter is probably the ultimate tool for this, but I kinda doubt that I'll be laying out the money for one because I dont really plan to do any more of this type of work after this truck. I do have a bench top shear, but I find that it is only good for 22 gauge or lighter, and of course only for straight cuts.
