Hey there everyone.
So, I make wooden jewelry, and I have some cool ideas for laminated pieces.
The thing is, for my ideas, I need to be able to cut 1.5 inch thick stock, to extremely thin slices. I’m talking 1mm thick.
I have been trying to find something that would enable me to do that. I’ve tried getting a bunch of different miter boxes, but they don’t work. I can’t get them to cut straight, no matter how much I fiddle with them.
I am low on money, so I’ve been trying to find a some what cheap way to do this.
I’ve thought about a miter saw, but the thickness of the blade would take up a lot of material. So for every lamination I get, I would lose two.
And I’m using very rare, expensive woods.
I think I may end up just having to buy a bandsaw.
Any suggestions on a remedy to my situation?
