    What is the best way to cut metal roofing? I have an overhang from the carport that dumps water into my chicken run. (Wish it was angled the other direction.) I'd like to cut it back to the edge of the carport so I can run a gutter to a dry well and channel the overflow away from the run.

    Any ideas? I have an electric metal shear that could work, but I've never used it.

    Use that or a circular saw. Take an old blade put it on backwards. Snap you a straight chalk line and let er rip. Be prepared, ITS LOUD AS HECK.

    No, not from work. There's a siding company near me that ships in framed crates. Pay attention [​IMG]

    Thanks
    When you figure it out, you tell me [​IMG]
    Shears work ok, but the corrugation makes it hard to cut in a straight line. What I've started doing is putting a metal cutting blade on my table saw and cutting it that way. Don't do it without ear plugs, and don't mind the molten metal on your arms. The pain goes away...

    Yep, I've done that, too. The first time I didn't put the blade on backwards. Then you get the wonderful experience of partially molten metal embedded in your arm [​IMG]

    Thank you Sally. By the way, I got my extra Chicken calendar today.
    That's not what Ravyn said, but I'll take it.
    Same piece :gig
    I bought an electric Bosch hand-held planer. Its sa-weeet! I also have a huge 13" Jet planer, but its a PITA to use.
