Youíll have to try several ways and decide what works best for you. It also depends on what you are cutting, flat plate or formed metal, straight or curved cut, on the bench or on the vehicle, etc. When a plasma is not available I like the sawzall for just about everything, even thin body sheetmetal. With the proper tooth count for the job the super sawzall blades last much longer than any others Iíve tried. I find the saw is not that much slower than the cut off wheels and it is much more maneuverable. The really thin cut off wheels work well but wear down too fast and make a lot of dust, especially when working in a confined space like a garage. The thicker wheels are a waste of time for cutting.
