    Metal Cutting

    I was wondering, what house hold tool I can use to cut metal or aluminum sheets? also with the sharp edges of the sheets how can I smooth it out, so I wont cut myself.

    Re: Metal Cutting

    it all depends on the thickness

    for thick stuff use something like this

    or for thinner stuff use tin snips
