Ayuh,.... Probably a sawsall,....

You missed the part about eliptical cutouts..oh well, the plasma cutter is probably the way to go.

How do you rate a Ryobi multi tool?

Ayuh,.... After ya mark 'em out, you'll see it's doable with a sawsall,....
With the corrugations, the cuts will be rougher than ya think, yet look perfectly fine from a distance,...
Much like hi-way sign paintin',...

Sometimes ya tear up the cut out piece, to make the remainin' part look like ya want it too,...
Drill a few holes to start a cut, 'n go from there,...

A cuttin' wheel on an angle grinder might be an option,...

Donno 'bout a multi-tool, never tried to cut sheet metal with one,...

Just yesterday, at the garage journal forums, there's a group gettin' together for a group buy on a smaller cheaper plasma cutter,...
google 'em up,... I don't wanna post a competin' link here,...

I was only mentioning a multi tool because I thought it could be used as a grinder as well. Maybe I am wrong here. I have to go get something to cut through some nails in osb, and recut the OSB, was thinking the best tool would be a multi-tool. But if a grinder is a separate animal, better I know that now as I will need a grinding tool. Doesn't have to be anything fancy I'm guessing. Or should i just buy these tools separately, ya think? I'll need a sander as well...was just hopin a multi tool could take care of all that...including grinding holes in metal.

Use a metal nibbler, something like this http://www.boschtools.com/Products/T...spx?catid=1073 to cut decorative holes. It is also good for any general cutting of the sheets, we use one when installing corrugated metal roofs--makes light work of roofs that have lots of hips & valleys. Just do the cutting over smooth concrete, or have a magnet handy, to pick up all the sharp little bits that come off the cutter.
There's a few corrugated metal fences in my neighbourhood, if I remember when passing them, I'll grab some pics.

mpg roofing- Where were you 20 years ago. 100 degree weather I am in a yellow rain coat cutting metal panels with a circular saw with a metal blade. The noise alone was enough to drive you mad.
