Can't find guide for cutting fine strips
Posted by dlh on Thursday, October 25, 2018 12:24 PM

I've seen this but can't find it now.  I think it's made of PE and has tiny grooves to guide a blade for cutting fine masking strips.  I think it even had angle measurements on it.  Thought is was a MicroMark but can find it for the live of me.  Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Thanks

Dave

Made by Infini. They are plastic, laser cut. I got the one for strips and like it a lot. Got mine from free time hobbies, but I see in the latest micromark catalog, they have them too. (#88073) EJ

Are you trying to cut wood, or styrene.

After giving up on various wood striping tools, I find I can get by with strip styrene.  With choices by Plastruct and Evergreen I can laminate, if need be, just about anything I need.  I am learning how to paint plastic to make it look like wood if natural wood appearance is necessary.

Don, it's for cutting consistent, uniform strips of masking tape.

Voyager makes a range of them for different shapes

I'm also going to use it to cut strips of Bare Metal Foil for hose clamps.

I just got a new Micro Mark catalog, and it looks like it has sets of PE cutting aids just like that.

I think I like the MM one better.
