Hey everyone, was wanting to know what you guys are using for cutting metal roofing material.......we are trying to keep clean cuts and angles that most tools dont offer the ability. ;)

I have been thinking about doing my own roof and have been checking things out. The big companies use a special shear, most of them form their own panels on site too. All of the smaller guys seem to be using tin snips.
I have some samples and am considering an abrasive or diamond blade on a skill saw. I have also thought that laying the metal flat on a piece of plywood should kill a lot of the noise.
If I get around to trying this I will post the results.
