How to cut Max-Metal HD
Posted 22 March 2012 - 08:11 AM
Let's say I want to cut a big circle in it. How would you pros go about this?
This is what I bought: http://www.grimco.co...=0198&pid=00856
I was thinking about trying my Roto-Zip. I'd probably need a heavier duty bit in it.
Any other ideas?

The first thing I did was use a HomeDepot bucket as the template, providing me with 6" radius.
I was just about to use the Roto-ZIp and I thought, how about trying to just use my utility knife?
When cutting MaxMetal you don't have to go all the way through, just score the surface, and snap it to break the section off.
Well, this worked, and the piece came out cleanly.
Of course, with a hole in the middle of the sign, this wouldn't work. but on the corner, it did.
