Response to Tools needed for cutting Brass sheets

Not sure if you have found your solution or not. However, I have been using a "score and snap" method with sheet brass to make small strap for things like road wheel hangers.

Basically I have a metal scriber that I found at a crafts store, although I have used a regular x-acto also, and I score the sheet where I want it to be cut. Then I clamp in in my Hold-n-Fold and carefully bend it up and down a couple of times. It breaks off and both sides (especially the small strip) have flat edges and have not curled.

Bob
