I need to make a bevel on the edge of a 1/8” inch thick x 2” wide piece of brass.
I really don’t want to use my good router bit for this purpose – so I am looking for alternatives?
Perhaps an inexpensive/throwaway router bit? Any recommendations or ideas? maybe use a file?
I also need to trim the length of the brass stock and have a smooth cut. Again, don’t want to use my band saw. Looking for alternatives – heavy duty paper cutter? scroll saw? I heard that gluing the brass between two layers of wood and using a scroll saw prevents burrs on the brass – anyone have success with this approach?
