Cutting roofing iron
Hi, any ideas for cutting roofing iron ? This is long run with square profile, not corrugated. Can use nibbler on that. I have been told a cutoff blade is not a good idea as it causes rust on the cut edges.
Thanks Guys.

Cutting roofing iron
Can answer my own question now!! Had a pro do the job and he used a Makita JN1601 nibbler which has a wide jaw opening, allowing it to cut virtually square corners
