Re: Making depth charges in 1/350.
a chopper is great for fine rod but does tend to distort thick stock, the way to prevent "flyaway" is to hold both sides of the blade with one hand cut with the other, and tip the bits into a tray rather than trying to pick them up!
I use a chopper. I find that the piece of rod (the part I've cut) between the guide and the blade tends to stick to the blade (static?) so it doesn't really fly away. At least, initially. It's when I go to move them or pick them up that I tend to launch them into oblivion.
I know you use plastic rod in the diameter you need. My question is what would you cut with. A
saw, knife, a chopper and how do you keep the little boogers from flying all over the place when cut? Thanks.
