|Gil Ayan||Re: cutting G-10 garolite circuit boards- ideas?|
Chuck,this topic has been debated many times before. And there are as many answers as there are people who provide them...
But here is my story: I have successfully cut 1/8" thick G-10 board with a handheld jigsaw with a metal cutting blade. I will admit that it takes a little pressure to get the thing to cut, but it does cut very nicely if you use high speed. I don't even have to clamp the board down, I hold it with one hand and the jigsaw with another one. If the edges turn out a litte coarse -- and they may -- I file them down with sandpaper after I'm done.
