What do you guys who use this stuff use to cut it with, I would like to use their sheets and solid and hollow rods for various items but don't know what types of hand tools to get? Can I cut that stuff with hand tools or do I need power tools.

I use hand tools:
bench vise
hack saw
sheet metal scissors (shears)
wire cutters

sometimes if I need to cut a lot of tube at one time. I'll set a jig into my bench top table saw, and use that. Brass is non-ferrous.
