Trouble Cutting Stainless Steel Conductive Ribbon - 17mm wid

by ultimatelongevity on Fri Mar 26, 2021 1:59 am

Hi Everyone,

We just ordered the Stainless Steel Conductive Ribbon - 17mm wide, along with your Stainless Steel 2 Ply and 3 Ply thread.

However, we had a lot of trouble cutting the thread (and the ends were very frayed when we did), and we were completely unable to cut the ribbon, using regular scissors.

Can you provide advice regarding what tools and/or methods we can use to cut the thread and especially the ribbon in a neat, tidy manner?

Thank you!

Tin-snips work. The type with serrations on the blades help to hold the strands in line while being cut.
