Cutting cloth, paper backing works great

I was doing some fussy rail repairs last night and and had new scissors but cutting the fiberglass cloth was still sloppy. I overlayed the cloth on a sheet paper or paper towel and it makes the cuts easy and precise. No frayed edges and the cloth doesn't push away from the blades. Much easier to quickly get a patch the right shape! Maybe it's a common technique but I'd never heard of it. Enjoy.

Ride on,
