Started out by not wanting to blacken my good honeycomb table I use for acrylic by cutting craftwood and and other stuff on it.
Several months ago, the radiator in my wagon blew one of the tanks off the end and had to be replaced. I was about to take it to the dump when I noticed the similarity of the structure to my honeycomb table.
The rest was simple.......

Step 1:

Make sure you are using an aluminium radiator
Mark to length and cut the radiator using an old timber saw.
<p>Thanks for the tip. I'll be making two of these. One for working with wood material and one for carbon composite material.</p>
<p>how well does carbon composite cut compared to - say - an equal thickness of acrylic or plywood?</p>
<p>Great hack! A word of warning on the pressure washing though, keep the pressure down you can do a lot of damage to the fins of a radiator with a pressure washer. Just ask my wife's car...</p>
<p>yer - i noticed that in the 1st coupla seconds - shoulda put he warning flag up iguess</p>
