Thanks for the compliment :D


I use carbon fiber rod .060"

I break off the bits I need with pliers, as I got tired of ruining blades trying to cut the stuff. It's not accurate like a blade through balsa, but it gets the job done.

I should also note, ca glue takes longer to dry in a carbon fiber joint, I'm not sure as to the strength of the bond, but it works well for static models.
