How to cut tough sheet laminates by hand
It is more than possible to cut these tough sheet laminates by hand. Here I show you a selection of both hand and small power tools to cut these tough laminates.
I use mainly Perma-Grit , a hack saw, a drill, rotary power tool and a file. Results were good, but time consuming and they created a lot of dust. You must take care with regards the dust. When cutting Fr4, g10 and carbon fiber the dust is very bad for your health. Please make sure you take the correct safety measure, i mention dust masks in the video.
You will see in the video that I use a Perma-Grit sanding block wedge. This is a fantastic tool. course on one side smooth on the other. The aluminium profile is nice to hold and give a very good finish. They are not expensive and its an idea tool to have in you workshop.
