Thanks for the info and link!

I have a draw blade but have had trouble with the steel shavings it
creates getting stuck to the rather sticky surface of the polymer.
They don't just brush off the way they do with zinc or copper plates.
That's why I'm exploring other ways.  happy though for any and all
suggestions :o)

A tool for scoring deep cuts in plates by removing the actual material,
metal or plastic, which then enables the sheet to be divided by snapping can
be purchased from a printmakers suppliers.Its called a ''Draw Tool'' and has
been used for many years by printmakers. ( approx. 20-00)
          Best of luck .
