question please: I have a lot of different gauges of hypodermic needles to use as all kinds of detail add-ons. My problem has been that when I cut the needle, it often collapses at the cut and ruins the nice round open shape. what tool do you use to cut the needle with? wire cutters, saw? I have tried to solve the problem by placing a length of wire inside the needle that fits snugly and holds the "tube" open during the cut. IN the past I have made the cut and them used a tiny file to open the crushed end open again and create a nice smooth circle. Back in 1975 when I began working in the hospitals, the needles were stainless steel and where sterilized and used again and again. Over The years they switched to aluminum and some other alloys to mass produce them as they wanted each needle to be used only once. the stainless steel ones would be premium!

Perhaps a small gauge pipe cutter? I use one for the brass and aluminum tubes I sometimes use.

Hello Ted
I do not use any special tool, a triangular metal file and slightly'll rotating needle is then easy to break it,
It is not a perfect cut but results.

It's looking fantastic Eduardo, and with the paint and weathering beginning to go on, it's coming to life now mate

Looks awesome Ed! The hairspray worked really well. Those closeups show the detail nicely too. [smile]
