Scrollsaw & bench pin question.? Answered

Why aren't you using a scrollsaw (and maybe files/belt sander sandpaper? Also, why not use a small clamp to secure the sheet metal to the bench pin?

(now I read your comment below and see, but this is still a quicker method :)

Thanks for the suggestions! I wanted to limit the number of power tools used in the class, as they aren't necessary when you are first learning. As for sandpaper, I suggest a few different types that I like, but there so many more options available too.

Feel free to clamp your sheet metal, but beware some clamp materials may mar the surface of your piece.
