Re: Cutting polymer plates
I agree. The best plate cutters I've used have been good old, heavy

used is a free standing, floor model paper cutter. I make a special
trip each week just to use it, in fact. ;-)
Hey Camden... that's a good idea. I still think I need a heavier-duty
cutter than the one I've got, but I'm willing to lose a little plate
rather than keep cutting them with a box cutter... that's actually
hurting my hand.

You lose a little bit of your plate this way (1/8-1/4 inch), but it
