Works great! Easy on part and build plate!


This is a standard fairly heavy duty buck knife (anniversary version I think). It's heft, and strong sharp blade with a large bevel on it makes taking parts of the plate very easy. And it doesn't hurt the part or the build plate. It works so much better than everything else I tried I had to share the tip. I haven't had any stuck part problems since I started using it. I've noticed people are downloading this - don't bother - there's nothing here but the "intentionally left blank" text file that I had to create before I could publish this tip!

I use the big kitchen knife to remove prints too, also i slice misc food with it and chop
wood(smaller pieces to make a fire easyer)

Should this not rather be a derivative of some kind?

Grinning, I'll try and find a picture of a flint blade then?

A sample of flat stock and block of wood will do.
