Cutting PhoneStar

  • Ensure careful handling to minimise filler spillage – otherwise the final performance may be compromised
  • Only cut the PhoneStar board while it is laid flat
  • Use a straight edge for guidance
  • Cut with a jigsaw, hand saw, Stanley knife or circular saw (ceramic tile tungsten carbide grit jigsaw blade, or general purpose tungsten carbide fine tooth circular saw blade, for longevity)
  • Immediately seal all cut edges with PhoneStar Eco-Tape while holding the board upright – see below
