    I would try that, but my hardwood floor cutting surface would not like it very well. I have a small candle in an altods can I used with my alcohol stove that works really well for me at heat sealing.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    i would think using the hot tip w/ a strait edge would be a quick, reliable way to get a perfectly strait edge.

    Yeah I have had very good results with that method. I use a wood burning tool that I had laying around and either a 4' level or a wooden yardstick. I havent been able to make good cuts with scissors but hot cutting works well for me and you dont get any fraying ends.

    Does it have a girl attached to it? If so, I think HE is missing one of those...

    I like to use my maglite to cut material. Thats right, if you swing it fast enough there is no need to heat seal the edges! BD
    Just Jeff made me do it

    I think I am coming to the conclusion that the Maglite to to Bird Dog as the jet boil/Tom Clayor hammock is to neo.

    Yup! And if BD orders a new Mag in camo, we're all in trouble!
