I need to cut a pcb board do that it will fit better in my guitar pedal enclosure. Any tips on how to cut it using ordinary things around the house or workshop. I am googling it as well but I would rather hear it from someone here who has done it.

My homemade PCB's are made with thin material. I use a regular paper cutter.

Hello,

When using a dremel for cutting the PCB, wear a mask and goggles.
Many types of PCB's are made of fiberglass.
You do not want to beath it or have it in your eyes.
