Perfect bevel cuts

#1
Hey Guys, I've been making all my bevel cuts at first using a simple tool I made from a block of wood and now one I 3d printed from a file on Thiingiverse. That's the blue one in the photo. I use the razor with a dulled tip to make a nice clean score cut at the hinge line. Do this all with the foamboard laying flat as shown in the photo. I'm sure I'm not the only guy out there doing this. It is quick, easy and produces a perfect bevel. The blade is set to a depth just above the paper. Don't forget to use the Flite Test method to seal the hinge with hot glue. Hope this helps some of the guys out there who are new to building with foamboard.

This is a great idea, keeps them super consistent. If you have the .stl file for the adapter could you do me a favor and post this on my Quick Tips thread, link here, it is a donation bank of builders tips for people to reference from. If you have the file to 3D print it, would be much appreciated if you could post that there with your entry. Thanks a lot and much appreciated (y):cool:(y)
