Customer reviewsGreat tool
This a great tool for my metal roofing work. I would aways use a nibbler or knife for my long flat panel cuts in the past. BUt this takes the cake. I almost got a corded model, I do not regret buying this, I use it much more than I thought I would. I use it on 29, 26 and 24 ga metal and it performs great. Note, this is only ment for flat, somewhat straight cuts, otherwise you probably need a nibbler, I like the Fein brand for that.
