Hello I recently aqquired some small pieces of tin roofing and I was wondering what I could use them for, I also would like knowing what the dangers are of using it if there are any thank you very much in advance

Best use is for Roofing, covering wood piles etc.  All my buildings any size has metal roofs (steel), generally Galvanized and in the last 20 yrs colored, right down to an outhouse at hunting camp.  Not designed to be heated.

Anything with a tin roof is designed to be heated out here in New Mexico!   Shoot we're still sleeping with the window open in the bedroom trying to get it cool enough to sleep!  I might light the furnace pilot light in a week or two...

Understand completely. My comment just goes along with that general idea that you can never have too big of a shop. Although, I walk into Home Depot, take a look around and think, "yeah, this could be just about big enough" LOL

nah Id say get 3 home depots, 1 for inside work (grinding, cutting with power tools etc.) 1 for forging and other outside work, and 1 for storage of metal and other such stuff
