as easy as it is with a sawzall. I use this all the time, love it for rough messy demo work, cutting shims after door installation, cutting pipe, etc. Not so much for cutting a straight line.

Depends on your hand-eye coordination, technique and choosing the right blade. I think a jig saw is a better solution for flat sheet metal, but if you're cutting corrugated, especially across the corrugation, this could be a good choice. If you're cutting a lot of sheet metal, look at a set of electric shears or even a plasma cutter.

What exactly are you cutting?

The metal edge of a door threshold to be flush with the side trim work.

Required to install a retractable screen door.
I would think a metal cutting circular saw would be more stable for cutting straight lines in metal. It sounds like that is what you are doing.
