    I find the best way to get a super clean join after sawing is by using a flat sided needle file in the join, pushing both edges towards the file and gently drawing the file back and forth. Good luck!

    I did wonder that. Hmm you have given me pause for thought. Do you think say a piece 5mm wide x 2mm deep x 15mm long would be big enough? Thank you Dennis.
