I have a bosch jigsaw that I use to cut alot of metal with. I have cut sheets of aluminum, angle iron and tread plate. It beats the tool up a little bit but is a cheap alternative to buying a $1000 plasma cutter.
Good Luck

I don't know anything about diamond plate, but for the thin tin, why not use a pair of tinsnips?

I think HD has a circular saw blade made for cutting metal. It grinds more than it cuts.

For the thinner metal, you can always use a circular saw with an old blade turned backwards. It's extremely loud, but it cuts like butter.

you can also buy an abrasive blade for a circular saw...it gets kinda messy but it cuts like butter...plus it will work for pretty much any type of metal you want to cut...you can find them at any big box store by the angle grinders
