    the masking tape would be key. its going to keep the rubber from moving and expanding. I'm sure this is a great way to cut rubber if you do not want to buy a rotary cutter and self healing mat.

    you can also just take your sisor (dont know if i spell it right) and cut it carefully, it works fine <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>

    <span class="postbody"><br>The masking tape is the key as you said. It is the best way i know to cut bands if you don' t have a rotary cutter. But you have to keep in mind, a rotary is better.<br>P. S: Got to use sharp scissors.</span>

    I've done that before. The masking tape helps if your scissors are not as sharp as they should be.
     
  10. I used your method tokSick, with the masking tape, and it works excellent dude.<br><br>I did find however after I cut them I needed to trim them up a bit and realised that the scissors I had just purchased were extra sharp and they did the job without the masking tape so WOOHOO for me!!! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br><br>But to the creator of this topic, <strong><a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/u276" class="postlink">Jonab Gama</a>, </strong> yeah man, that is definitely the easiest way to do it.
