need it to cut edges on alluminum roof on chook and bunny house.

(they had a booklet of how to do and what to do when it comes to art and decoration things)

Why don't you hire one first to do the work you want. That way you can find out haw easy / hard it is to do.
I remember the ad but they did not tell you the price, you would have to ring in for that.
Anything sold on an 0800 ad is always heaps more that they should be, someone has to pay for the advertising :(

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.

There are 'As Seen on TV' stores but I would never set my foot into one of them. Wait long enough and the item that was $$$$$ on TV appears in the 2 Dollar Shop or in The Warehouse for a fraction of the price.

I have cut normal roofing iron quite successfully with 2 different tools:

- A Jigsaw (cost less than $50 from Bunnings)

- Some Tinsnips (cost even less)

Tinsnips give the nicest job, but it is hard work for larger sheets when you get away from the edges. You will also need quite strong hands for thicker metal.

A Jigsaw will cut any size or thickness of sheets (up to say 5 or 6mm thick), but it can be hard to keep to a straight line and it is also easy to break the blades if you aren't careful.

Either way will work with a bit of practice and for goodness sake don't buy the overpriced rubbish from the TV Shop :)

I was interested in that and actually ph'd, about $340 from memory but I found nearly the same thing at M10 for about $60 called a double headed cutter, which does work and a girl can use..but slower on the corrugated iron than a jigsaw.
Tins snips are only for the first 2 inches then they become items of torture.
A jigsaw works faster, but the double headed thingee will go around corners etc easier.... I had about 20 sheets of corr. iron to cut in half and so the BIL resorted to the jigsaw as the uneveness didnt matter.
