I want to share a tool new that may be new to some of us.
At a recent meeting, John introduced us to the plexiglass cutter. Works just as good or better than any scriber I have seen. Couple this with a straight edge for guidance and good to go. Speaking o...f straight edge, Steve F. showed us to his straight edge of choice back on Club Day; pieces of metal measuring tape. It is very flexible and cut at each end with an angle to get into hard to reach places.
I found my plexiglass cutter at Home Depot - $12.99. I bought a 1 meter tape there too, and cut it with side cutter plyers.
The blue steel parts ( the internal coil) are actually better, very flexible, can go around curves, like a fuselage maybe?
