I want to use Easel and my Makerspace’s X-Carve to cut thin aluminum (0.020") into a shape that will be folded into a perforated box.
How can I hold this metal down to the waste board? Should I glue it to some sacrificial 1/4" plywood, or foam core board and only cut partway though the sacrificial board? The pieces will be from 6" x 8" down to 1" x 1/2" with irregular edges.
The X-Carve is new to the Makerspace and no one there has cut anything but wood or thick plastic yet so I am blazing a new trail.
