If it's thin enough, you may be able to use tin snips, otherwise you may have to get either a real grinder, or a dremel bit made for tougher metal.

Try a Nibbler. Takes a while, but it works pretty well. I used one for my first window mod and it came out perfect. Just outline the area you want cut and then "nibble" away......

Ha~ha chavalcito! My lord, so immature. Had you moved your eyes yet another 1/8",

You would've seen that i was talking about sheet metal. Nibbler, eh? I saw that once or twice, real nice, I'll say. Hammer with a nail? haven't heard that before.....creative....

My jigsaw is shot.....but i found a metal-cutting rotary saw blade.......works pretty nice.

What kind of dremel attachment? could you give the specifics? like name and stuff?

Also, sorry if I was rude at all here....My allergies are really bad today.

 

I am sleepy and have allergies:

I just got done building two separate gold dredge sluiceboxes from scratch with 0.063" aluminum...so I KNOW this'll work for you!

If you just need to cut fan holes, get a holesaw(attached to and drill) and cut perfect circles.
