I don't know if it's the same as G10, but I cut my fiberglass/epoxy circuit cards with a straight edge and a utility knife. I score the cut as deep as patience allows, then flip it and snap along the straight edge.

ive tried it that way and i doesnt work. i tried it w/the 1/8" and scored it about quarter way thru and still wasnt able to do it. i think its what they make the black boxes in airplanes out of.

Wow, rugged. Mind if I ask what you get in exchange for the increased cutting/drilling difficulty of G10 vs other fiberglass+epoxy boards? I know it comes in colors, which is fun, but that's all I know about it

well for me it may be extreme, but if you wanted do rack systems w/ tubes and or trannies right on the board i dont think itd be a problem. hoffman used to make amps like that. also its heat/conductive resistance is much better than phenolic and breadboard, but have no idea how it fares against the product your using. a 12x12" sheet is around $10. in the future ill probably start using the 1/16" as my boards just suspend small passives.
basically its cheap, strong wont suffer from tweed disease and is what was rec'd when i built my first amp, a hoffman 5e3. only other thing ive used is radio shack bread board and terminal strips.
