Cutting Fiberglass


Cut fiberglass circut board by scoring one or both sides with a knife and then breaking the board along those lines. A back and forth motion, using pliers to direct bending stress to the score lines, will break progressivly more glass fibers until the board pieces separate.

I use an xacto knife to score boards. I hold the knife at a low angle so that I am cutting with the seldom used base of the blade near the handle. I push away from me. I guide the cut by aligning the blade tip over the holes in front of where I am cutting.
