Me again... thanks for input on my last post "metal really necessary?" (well, I guess "thanks"). Wanted to gain some extra cube ft. by removing pkg tray... mission accomplished... but now I find myself trying to fill it back up with some pretty elaborate rollbar ideas you all turned me on to! :D

Anyway... now on to roof. I was reminded during pkg tray rmvl how fast-paced and caffeine-intolerant my plasma cutter is. Also, a 3" cutoff won't arc the corners too tightly. Hmmm... could this "justify" owning an air nibbler? I've never used one... I'm curious if they cut predictably? Any pros/cons on'em?

air niblers have waste but are pretty accutate if you follow the line well. sawzalls (reciprocating saw, recip saw, that thing that cuts stuff,are all the same thing) will have a slight kerf (waste material caused by the thickness of the blade but they work great and the kerf wont matter if its a welding job.

Air body saws work well too. I find them to be quite a bit easier to manage than a sawzall and can fit in smaller places. The smaller stroke is nice as well since you need less room behind what you're cutting...

Thanks for input guys- I appreciate it! Good enough justification to add an air nibbler to the arsenal... (whether I end up using it or not ;) )

Anything is a good excuse to "have" to buy another tool.
