My mentor of many years ago commonly used a paper cutter to cut
silver sheet. It works very nicely for thin gauges, but
literally can’t cut the mustard on sheet thicker than 24 gauge
or so. Of course if the sheet has been annealed, it cuts more
easily & will really slice through copper.
I recently found a used paper cutter at a tag sale. Even though
it was rusty, a little WD-40 and Scotch brite cleaned it up. If
you can find a used paper cutter - try surplus sales at schools
and government offices - get it. The older cutters are built of
more durable material. I would pass it up if the blade is badly
rusted or scarred, unless it’s really cheap and you don’t mind
fiddling with having it reground.
Such great ideas come from this group! Kap kuhn ma ka, Hanuman.
Good luck, Judymw
