I either use the .045 dewalt cutting disk or a regular dewalt grinding disk.

Looking good!

Rebarding the DeWalt .045 cutting wheels, I just bought 50 of them on sale. I find they cut a bit more slowly than the Walter Zipcut disks I usually use, but they last a lot longer. I made 4 cuts through the 1 1/4" trailer spindles I just installed with one disk, and had a lot of it left... Like 4 1/2" of the original 5" diameter.

Tack the sheet metal in places like in different spots so the previous one can cool down. Then I run a line (not swirling like a bead) really quick from tack to tack, I have the wire speed turned up a bit too
