GUTTER question help--please

1)I have old white gutters,they are metal..are they most likely aluminum?
2)i want to sell the scraps,whats the best way to cut them into small pieces? can a circular saw or hack saw work?
3) the sheathing on my roof,is it most likely 5/8 or 3/4? what do most of the newer homes in the north east have?
4)is 15lb felt paper thinner than 30 lb?
thank you very much guys

Your questions are kinda all over the place there. Are you doing something else to the roof that you want to know about tar paper and your sheeting on the roof?

Why are you removing your gutters? Is there something wrong with them>?

1) yes if the magnet doesn`t stick
2)remove fasteners,step down on the gutter back and flatten them,then roll them up by bending at 2 or 3' intervals
3)you probable have 1/2 " plywood
4) 15# felt is a requirement under asphalt shingle roofs as breathability is required

No need to cut them up, usually - if they are standard aluminum gutters, just stomp them flat where you wish to bend them and then bend them over into pieces of whatever length you wish... seriously... they are just thin aluminum, often they were formed from coil stock on site:
