Cut Blade

How to cut a hole in my metal shed to install a window.?

As I see it, I have the following options:
1. Get some pneumatic cutting tool - may be too expensive and I dont have mains power at the site ...
2. use compound aviation tin snips
3. use a jigsaw with metal cutting blades
4. use a haxsaw

I am not exactly sure of the thickness/type of metal the shed is made out of ... I would guess this would make a lot of difference as to which tool/approach to use?

I would plan to start by drilling a hole and eventually getting whatever cutting tool through it and start cutting, am concerned I wont be able to get the cut straight.

Any ideas or suggestions what may be the best way to approach this?

My first choice would be to drill a hole in it and then try some snips. Often the metal in sheds is thin enough to cut with some good quality hand cutters. Cutting a strait line can be difficult if you have the wrong snips. Your hand keeps running into the side, so get some that have an offset for easily cutting out a strait line.

Using a power tool may be disastrous. It may make a poor cut bending and stretching the material.

If it is too thick to cut by hand and you must resort to power tools, frame it with wood first, larger than the hole you want. It will then be easy to cut the metal out with a power tool. Just cut along the inside of the wood frame.

Frame it inside and out. Nothing fancy just something to keep the metal in place when you cut. If you are not sure how to do this. Just drill small holes in the corners of the size of the opening you want. Make sure the screws you place outside the opening area to hold the wood together, will be covered by the final frame,so the holes will not show in the end. You should be able to cut it with a saws all, electric saw with long blades made for metal.
