Same story, different song: a mate of mine came round and played the Fender acoustic I just couldn't get to grips with. Absolute magic was produced, but I still sold it. I bought another acoustic guitar years later and it's fine, I'll never be as good as I'd like though, but like railways, I just love to play!

We can always enjoy everything we do, no matter how we do it. Rock on Tommy!

Bill :)

Box cutter (Stanley) with snap-off blades, but the industrial size with 25 mm heavy duty blades (8 to a strip). 2-3 passes is normally enough.

A picture to hopefully show the difference in card thickness I have been using.
I do very much appreciate the replies by the way....

Hi Shaun

Please use the Gallery for photos.  It saves Alan some money for the hosting.

Cheers

Did not realise we could not add photos, I just see loads of threads with photos added and thought it was OK. Apologies again.

Looking at the thickness of that card Shaun the buildings look almost bombproof. Card modelling can be time consuming but once the skills are learnt they stay put. Eventually you will find a method that suits you. Take your time and enjoy experimenting. That Eureka moment is well worth the effort.

Being Olfa, I'm sure that they are.


I have been after some new blades for ages, I have trawled the usual places, fleabay, Amazon et-al without success, so if anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful, cheers, Pete.

So would I, Pete.

Wendy's got one in her studio as well, but I've never been able to source the blades.

I came to the conclusion that I would have to buy a whole new knife, but so far I'm still on the first blade.
