When shooting a mime, don't use a silencer or his friends will hear you.
If camera lenses are round why do the pictures come out rectangle?

Yea your onto it, I like to tape up the area where I'm cutting and cut thru the tape. I usually use a dremel but sometimes use a hacksaw too.

as badfish said - tape it and then cut through the tape - it stops the blank from "splintering" at the cut.
