Might be something better but I just use my angle grinder.

Either a straight air grinder (good for getting nice angled and curved cuts), or a good angle grinder (I prefer the one with the dead-man switch:ever flies outta your hand, you'll know why).

I had one chase me around the yard til it finally ran over and cut the cord. :D

I don't have any air tools, so I allways use my electrical angle grinder with 1mm disks for nice small cuts.

I like the 4.5" angle grinder, be sure to wear heavy leather welders gloves and safety glasses while operating, dead man switch is also a plus.

I always reach for my angle grinder, unless I'm cutting something it can't reach. That's when I grab my jigsaw with a metal cutting blade. Sucks, but it gets the job done.

Just seen a buddy grab a handful of that cutoff wheel on a angle grinder to put a new one on and accidentally hit the trigger:eek:,thankfully he had on leather gloves. I will always unplug that shit before changing a wheel out.

Above tools are great... a few other tools are a Drill press and a chopsaw w a metal disc. A nice bench vice and a big ass hammer.

18-24 gauge I use nibblers, 1/8 thru 16 gauge I use a 4 1/2 angle grinder. For tighter radius curves I'll use an air cut off tool. For tubing I like to use a band saw if I can get to it. saws all if its a real tight spot
