The blank of the plates is carried out with the jigsaw. It should be ensured that a suitable thin plastic saw blade with fine teeth is used. The pendulum of the jigsaw should be turned off to avoid the formation of cracks in the material. The free-hand cut with a jigsaw requires some practice. Easier achieved a clean and straight cut if a strip is fixed as a stop over the entire cutting length. Alternatively, you can work well with a hand saw.

Remove protective film
