Does anyone have a good way to cut metal? Cuz i want to attach a metal ork to a bike but it wont fit.
It's a very tricky proposition to cut on metal. First of all, if you plan on using a razor then make sure that you are safe and always cut away from your body. My Platoon Sgt in my last unit cut his thumb to the bone trying to modify a Chaos Rhino.... I told him he had angered the dark gods...
Anyhow, another useful tool is a dremel. With the correct adaptors you can cut metal very quickly and precisely with a dremel. In fact, I use a dremel to remove flash from metal models before priming them.
One tip: Take a few pieces of junk metal and practice cutting shapes and other things in it just to get used to how the metal reacts to your movements. Michelangelo used to spend years practicing cutting shapes into marble and other stones just to carve one statue. I'm not saying you need that kind of dedication, but make sure you practice a little before destroying a 10 dollar model.
ok thx, but the euipment sounds all pro and hard to use. Anyone got some simple solutions or do we have to use sumtin big and choppy.
And wat do u mean by razor? Like shaving razor or wat?
A nice sturdy modeling razor. One that you can find at most hobby shops or at a GW stores. They even sell a nice on their website for an elevated price of course.
LOL. Silly GW and there evaluated prices. Seriously they sell for too high.
Well if you gave us the specific problem we could probably help a lot more. I myself am heavily into metal fabrication soft and hard metals.

I think he wants to trim/carve chunks out of a metal ork model that does not fit into position.Originally Posted by Forger of Civilization

I wouldn't call a Dremel a "pro" tool, although I've seen someone use one very well.Originally Posted by ork_em_dork
Check out this thread:
A dremel isn't just a good hobby tool, it's a good tool in general to have. To cut metal use one of the carbon fiber saw blades that come with a kit.
