Well done! Your technique takes it to a whole new level. Heretofore, I've always just pulled some off the roll and cut with scissors. One look at the outer seam of my carbon/kevlar covered Levithan and you can see the results of my poor workmanship with the fabric. I've made a commitment to get a rolling cutter now and raise the bar of my technique.
The derivative of velocity is acceleration. That's what my 4 year old tells me anyway.
Thank you, for the very informative video. Those damn strings are now a thing of the past.

I believe the best way to avoid unraveling is to use "pinking shears." Wick's Aircraft sells an excellent pair.
Nice video, John.
Rotary cutters are the cat's meow for cutting fiberglass and CF, that's for sure!
Thanks for the video John, and especially the tip on pulling one strand to get a uniform center line when cross cutting the cloth! Greg
