How to cut this?


Recommended Posts

Whats the best way to cut the material that is in the picture?


The material is a plastic light diffuser commonly called 'eggcrate".

I have found a small pair of wire cutters works best. They fit inside the 1/2" squares, and help make the cutting fast and easy.

Thanks everyone. I didn't do any of what you said. Well I kind of did. I used Lineman Pliers. They are almost the same size as the squares. By putting the pliers on the part I was breaking off most of the "little" pieces were kept in the pliers and them placed in the garbage. I used a sanding block to smooth out the small amounts that were left.


But I must say "Thank-you" to everyone, because with out the suggestions I wouldn't have come up with my solution.
