Sort of like what I posted earlier.Back when I was a carpenter it was common practice to mount a Skilsaw blade backward to cut sheet metal.
I find that the cutting wheels generate too much heat when cutting and that will affect the paint and possibly cause corrosion later on. When I did my metal roof it was suggested that I not use a grinder for that reason.I've read of them shattering and I'm apprehensive of getting shards in my body even though I wear PPE.
But presently the roofing metal I'm cutting is eating about 1 Dewalt DW8062 wheel per panel width.
Don't buy harbor freight cutting wheels...stick with diablo or dewalt.
