Well, it's been a bit difficult to obtain pre-cut maple spacers for buckers that are consistent in size/dimensions. Sometimes they're fine, but often I end up "shimming" them with electrical tape so that the bucker bobbins are level with each other on final assembly, and cutting them down in length to fit within the frame properly.
So, I figure why not use 1/8" tempered hardboard? I mean it's uniform in thickness and all I gotta do is cut them out, right? So I bought a sheet (peg board type actually, so it would fit in the trunk of my Accord) at the hardware store and it seems to match the magnet thickness quite well.
Here's the thing. I own almost no power tools, but I'd like to cut a pantload of these so I have them on hand. I'm thinking an inexpensive Scroll Saw would be the way to go. What do y'all think would be the best tool for cutting these fairly accurately? Anybody else doing something like this?

I think the problem you're going to have with the scroll saw is that it won't cut straight. There are some miniature table saws fromChinra you can find on Ebay or at your local sweat shop Harbour Freight. I have one of these and they are kinda dangerous but they do work. NO blad guard on the undersideof the thing, took a nice chunk out of my finger when I got it. You can get a cheap band saw for maybe $80, the wider the blade the straighter it will cut. Or just find a friend to cut them for you? Dave

Try going to your local art or hobby store and buy balsa wood or other materials such as chip board that can be cut with a razor knife and straight edge. Scroll saw will make you crazy for these type of cuts. Or a local cabinet shop would probably cut all you need for a few bucks if you want maple.
