Has anyone used a stencil burner? Please give me your feedback on how you like it. I have been looking at one for about a week now and need to know if they are worth the money. They are suposed to make cleaner and sharper cuts than an exacto knife.
Thanks in advance

They work ok but they do not make sharp cuts. They work by melting through the mylar witch does not give you sharp edges. However they are fast and easy to use.

Tally, I have been using pieces of wire bent in different
shapes and a propane torch to heat it with, then burning
the stencil. Workes very good. You have to sand the
edges around the burn to make them smooth.

Stay away from the stencil burners. I have one and I dont like it at all.
I'll sell it to you if you want!!
I think that extra sharp exacto blades is the way to go. And yes it was answered correctly, all it does is melt the Mylar or plastic, so sharp edges are not gonna happen! Cody
