After splashing out on and NEQ6pro and a SWED80 Pro this month, im hard pressed to spend anymore money so out comes the DIY brain... pretty easyone this but saves £15 quid..


Made a template in Corel Draw, the printed it out on the Vinyl Cutter/Plotter at work onto fluorescent card..

and simply popped out the bits I didn't need..


These are ok I think on a small scale but would have to buy thicker card if I wanted to produce larger ones..


Just need the scope to turn up from FLO, and give them a test..


If it works I'm happy to make some more up if anyone interested.
