[RCSE] Fw: How do you cut carbon plate?

I am building a new 2M wing and I am going to make the main joiner out of carbon fiber plate. I had successfully cut a wing joiner out of 0.074" carbon plate before. The cost was a scroll saw blade with rounded teeth.

Anybody have suggestions on either kick-butt blades or a better technique for a guy in his garage?

I was thinking Dremel cutoff wheels, magic wand, incantation, etc.

Experiences?

(I didn't find anything good in the archives)

I use Dremel-like tool with a diamond-dust cutting
disc. It cuts carbon like butter. Make sure that you
wear a mask in the process to avoid inhalation of
carbon dust.
