after seeing the shingles from Ragg,s i find them nice.

sadly Raggs stopped producing and i was giving it a try to make something simular with the cutter


 
started with black paper, feeding to the cutter

and made a dreawing for it




this fits nicely on a A4 size paper, i used slightly thikker paper than the normal printing paper




this works fine

Very nice. Since Paper Creek, etc. quit making them, you might have a "ready market" if you want to produce some.

Can your cutter make things from very thin (1/64 or so) plywood or maybe basswood?

never tried thin plywood, but i think it wouldn,t work with this machine
i believe there are bigger cutters who can do that.

no plans to go comercial with this
if there is somebody who wants to give it a try, i am willing to sent the drawing for the silouette
it,s a small file, can be sent by email
