Here are a few specialty tools that we use and
recommend for working with copper.
Wiss M-300 Shear
This 3" compound action straight-cut shear cuts
through 2" copper strap in one squeeze.  A
couple of squeezes and you're through 4" strap!   
This is the one we use every day in the shop!
Made In USA
Trying to drill holes in copper strap?
Don't drill copper strap or sheet.  Punch it!
Includes the following punches & dies:  3/32",
1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 7/32", 1/4", 9/32".
Made In USA
Roper Whitney No. 5 Jr. Punch
Economy Sheet Metal Punch
This punch is similar to the Roper Whitney punch
above, but is made in Taiwan.   I've used both - The
Roper Whitney seems better built.  But this economy
version works fine for light duty occasional use.  It
gets the job done.... at a lower price.
Malco 3" Sheet Metal Tool
This handy hand-held tool can help you bend,
fold, flatten, or hold copper strap or copper
sheet.  It's like compound pliers, but with 3-inch
wide carbon-steel flat jaws.  (There are cheaper
versions on the market with die-cast jaws.)
Malco 6" Sheet Metal Tool
Same as above, but with 6-inch wide jaws.
