Well, she came home with the new board today, and it's a magnetic board made by Quartet, very nice (it was $50), but it's a little too big. The magnetic part is a sheet of thin steel laminated to the back of the whiteboard, I don't think I can peel it off. So, the question is, how should I cut it? I was originally planning to use my circular saw, but I don't want to ruin the carbide blade. What about a cheap plywood blade, in my worm-drive saw?
I was also thinking about using my jigsaw, with a metal blade, with a straightedge guide. It doesn't have to be a clean cut, as it gets hidden in the dado of the frame.
I also have a metal cutoff saw with abrasive blades, but don't think it will cut the wood part very well.
And I also have access to a plasma torch, but I don't think that would work out very well... ;-)
Suggestions welcome. She has her heart set on having the magnetic feature, so taking it back and getting a non-magnetic one is not preferable.
