I can probably figure out a jig for my Dremel 400 XPR.
I want to cut a series of corks in a line of say, six. I have used a band saw in the past, that was still not that good a cut or ease of operation. I was considering a blade that can cut cleanly and easily through approx. 1" corks. I don't see a jig saw blade working well.

Any suggestions are welcome, Thanks, Neil

Neil:

If I were you I would do it the easy way and simply place the cork in a vice (or carefully hold it with your hand) and use a coping saw to cut it in half lengthwise. It is quick, easy and you will have less of a mess to deal with afterward.

If you are going to use a Dremel, you should use one of the cutting wheels, but be very careful of the speed you use. You do not want to burn the cork.

I have been making homemade wine for years and work with corks quite a bit. If I were you I would stick to the coping saw.

Good luck.


Thanks,

Kurgan
