How is everyone cutting down your heat treat foil. We have come across a problem and that is cutting up foil. With the number of knives we get it has become a problem. Yes we gas shield but not often. It’s good for large batches of the same alloy but we see lots of small individual batches of different alloys. So foil is our go to for shielding. We order our rolls 24” wide as that’s the cheapest way. But even after building a shear to cut it straight off the roll it’s still taking to long. So we are wanting to shear it on the roll to 6” wide individual rolls. I was given a narrow roll of foil years ago and it’s the bees knees. So nice to just pull out the length you need and cut it off. Very little if any waste this way. When using 24” rolls you have waste as your always cutting off a 24” long strip. So this brings us to the question at hand. Does anyone know of a place that sells narrow rolls or will cut rolls down. I’m going to try slitting it on the lathe using a rolling blade like a pizza cutter. Just turn the roll and push the blade into it. I don’t know how well it will work but anything is better then what we are doing now. I found rolls that are 10” wide but that’s way to wide for our uses. Any other ideas?
