will this tool cut thru propanels ribs and flat?

Asked by: terry
Yes we just did a job with panels with ridges. It glides right over them if you keep a light up pull on tool while going forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 16ga Nibbler I have always been told if it is cheap it is probably cheap for a reason, well this is wrong, this thing cuts amazing, I just built a barn and had to cut around 20 pieces of R-panel, it saved me a large amount of time, I have a lot of makita power tools and they have yet to disappoint me..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes quick work of r panel Awesome tool I have a shear and this is by far a superior tool. The die pushes the cresant shaped waste towards the floor. The curf is about 3/16 of a inch. If you build metal buildings you are wasting time not having this tool.
