    How the heck did he make perfect rings with the Olfa circle cutter? Mine has some play in it and I have a hard time cutting perfect circles.

    Put a bit of packing (card, plastic) under the sliding bit to remove the slack and your circle cutting will improve instantly. Also don't try to cut a circle out in one pass especially on thick stock - multiple passes seem to work best.

    Regards,

    Thanks for the tip. I feel foolish now as the answer seems so obvious!

    I don't want to side track the thread, sorry, but I must ask...

    John, what does the little yellow star on your avatar signify?

    Just a wee bit curious. :-D

    I earned it from Golden Bear............... for being lucky enough to guess his current build before he started posting............... I think I beat Michael Kroll by a couple of nano-seconds:grin:

    First time I acually won any guessing match here on the site:grin:
