Step 1: Parts you need to make this
1. Base: 3/4 inch pine, 7 1/4 x 11 inches.
2. Two uprights: pieces of 2x4; 2.5x2.5x1.5inches.
3. One crossbar: 2 1/2 x 10 x 1 1/2inch.
4. Tape cutting mount, 2 1/2 x 6 1/4 x 1 1/2inch.
Total= 5 pieces
Two bolts with nuts are needed: 5/16 x4 1/2 bolts with nuts and 2 washers each.
One piece of hacksaw blade, cut or broken to fit the tape cutting mount.
Step 2: Drill holes in wood pieces
Also, drill three holes in the hack saw blade to be able to attach it to the cutting block. (Use a 3/32 in bit for these short screws). Three holes are drilled in the botton of the base and into the cutter mounting block. Use a 1/8 inch bit for this step.
