    i'm thinking of making some patterns out of old CD's/DVD's. my question is, what type of blade would do the best job in cutting it?

    The FD-Polar # 3 or # 5 would be a good blade to use. I also would use the 2" clear package tape, it helps to eliminate that the kerf melt together again.

          It helps to sandwich the CD's between some 1/8" plywood or even some stiff cardboard. This helps prevent the welding together if you are stack cutting.

            Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75. I have a sister in assisted living with hospice people and care givers that come and go everyday...they still haven't received the...

            We have not. A visit to the doctor and he stated that once sick with covid, the antibodies are active in the body.
