Metal studs are usually used when you add a new wall in a house or in the basement. In order to use them you will have to learn how to cut them. Follow the instructions below.
- You will probably not have the right pair of tin snips unless this isn’t the first time you cut metal studs. Test the tin snips you do have around on a scarp piece of metal and see how they perform. If you are not happy with how they cut, go to the store and buy a new pair. The right pair should be able to cut 20 gauges steel.
- Measure the length of the stud you will want to cut with measuring tape and mark the cutting spot with a permanent marker. Draw a cut line across the surface of the stud with a carpenter’s square.
- Use the pair of tin snips to cut along the line you marked earlier until you’ve cut through the wide surface and the 2 side surfaces.
