An ordinary dime-store glass cutter (disk roller type) makes an excellent tool for cutting aluminum sheet. Just score each side of the sheet and then flex the aluminum until it parts at the score. If the sheet being worked with is fairly large, it pays to clamp the metal along the score lines by one means or another.
