So here is the deal. If you plan to do any sheet metal work you want to work smarter not harder. The best way to do that is to get a good pair of sheet metal shears. These things come in a range of flavors but we recommend going with the electric ones unless you just prefer air.
These things work awesome and will cut the time down to a fraction of what it would have taken if you were using hand shears.
