Straight Cutting Torch

Sep 10, 2011

Can One cut sheet metal having a gas torch?

Very very small workspace.


1/8 inch thick steel sheet, unsure from the guage, but under 16


Creating a solo chair pan for any custom chopper.


Can One cut the sheet having a gas torch that exist around $40 in your own home Depot?


Otherwise, what will be the least expensive way using what tool? Please no shears, that will require sometime doing “cut right, cut left, cut straight”

a gas torch won’t have the ability to get hot enough to chop the sheetmetal, use a jig saw having a metal cutting edge, or perhaps a die grinder having a stop wheel
