Rill 4 hoes for the corners, then use a keyhole saw or a hacksaw blade with handle (gently) to cut the straight lines.

I need a Scouring Grove Tool to make varyring sized envelopes

when using 2mm plastic sheets I want to cut out a size POCKET, AND SEAL THREE ENDS.
Asked by: Bill
Not sure how you'd make an envelope out of plastic. Scoring tools for paper and card stock come from print shop supplies. Talk with a print shop supplier.

This tool works fine for cutting thin acrylic/plastic panels. You just have to read the directions and work slowly and patiently. I never cut acrylic panels before and tried to use a knife. It was a epic fail and destroyed a new panel. I bought this tool for less then $4 and am cutting acrylic light panels like a pro now. I can even cut round shapes, but it is a little more difficult. Just drag the sharp hook on your panel repeatedly using a straight edge or stencil. DON'T PUSH TOO HARD. Let the tool do the work. You will see fine lines of plastic coming off if you're doing it right. Repeat over and over in different directions until you are able to make a clean break with very little force. It's not difficult, but takes time. If you're in a hurry I suggest using a electric saw if available.

This is absolutely the best way to cut ceiling light acrylic diffuser panels. I watched YouTube videos that show using a table saw, using a utility knife and using this cutter. I tried each of the methods. I also tried using scissors. This cutter far and away works the best. I destroyed 1 panel testing using the table saw and using scissors. You could probably get by using a utility knife, however is much easier to use this tool. To use: Score the panel with a straight edge. Don't press hard when you score the panel. Use a rigid straight edge when you snap the panel at the scored line. I made 2 cuts (long edge and short edge) on approx. 12 panels. The blade is still sharp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well when it's used correctly So, this actually works quite well (at least on acrylic) if you use it correctly. The instructions are not specific enough and they are probably the cause of the frustrated customers on here. After struggling with it trying to cut through with the sharp tip and blade I realized you have to use the hooked point to "dig" the plastic out. Hold it fairly parallel to the plastic and drag/dig using the hooked part. Clamp some sort of straight edge to the plastic to guide you and start slow until there's a groove that keeps the cutter from slipping to the side. Use firm pressure but don't push too hard or it'll get stuck; let the tool do the work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had to use THREE of these tools to cut... I had to use THREE of these tools to cut 3 panels! These blades were of very poor quality. They began to dull before I was finished cutting each panel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better Instructions I found another brand of this tool in another store that had better instructions. It appears that the blade is not the part that is used for scoring. It is the tips of the blade and the blade is actually facing away from you as you score the plastic. Previous review said most people don't know how to use the tool and I believe this is correct. I certainly didn't. I also read, when snapping the scored portion off, lay it over the edge of a counter and place a board on top of the piece you will be using for the light. That will hold it flat while you snap it off the piece you aren't going to be using.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is horrible I was able to score 1 edge and anap it along the scored line. It did not score and break in 1 clean piece. I had to sand down the little bits that didn't break properly. After 1 cut the blade was so dull I couldn't make the 2nd cut for my project. Thank you to whoever suggested using scissors instead of this tool. I was able to make my 2nd cut using scissors and it saved my project. This tool is going back to Home Depot because it's useless

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't buy this if you are in a hurry When you are cutting any type of plastic sheeting, please be patient. It takes a number of cuts across the surface to get this material to cut cleanly. This knife works very well. Make sure that you use a straightedge to stay in the same groove and make sure that the cuts extend all the way to the margins. Then, when you are brave enough, line up your cut along the edge of a table or 2x4 and gently push downward. Your material should snap right along the line you cut.
