Some times it is necessary to cut styrene rods in very thin sections, for example making washers. I made a simple jig to do this job from scrap styrene.


Push the material against the positioner and put a thin knife on the rod. Rotate the rod while applying pressure on the knife. In this case thickness of spacer is 0.5mm and thickness of the knife blade is 0.25mm. So the thickness of cut material will be about 0.65mm.


Even with the jig some variations are inevitable. Cut many and use only good ones.
