|A china graph pencil or water based felt pen or even a pencil can be used to mark out model making materials.|
|A compass cutter is used to cut circles in paper and light card. It can be adjusted to cut a variety of accurate sizes.|
|A roller cutter is used to cut curves and arcs in paper and card. A cutting mat should be placed below the card and pressure applied to the cutter as it is moved forwards.|
|Paper cutters are used to cut card and paper very
accurately in straight lines. These pieces of equipment are very safe as
the rotating cutting disk is positioned inside a housing.
A range of cutters are available but the most effective are the large, high quality versions. Small, lightweight versions are cheap and capable of cutting paper only.
