I received my Dirkcheap ssr coop boards and need to separate them for assembly. What is the best way to cut them apart? Thanks. Rob

They should be scored I would hope! Just bend them at the score line in both directions until they snap apart. DO NOT run your fingers along the edge to see how smooth it isn't as a fiberglass splinter is no fun...

I put the score line on the edge of the kitchen counter, then a phone book on top and carefully bend down starting at one end and working down. When my fingers started to get sore I used a lineman pliers.

Those are scored -- just bend them back and forth and they will snap on the scored line. Don't need to cut them at all!

Thanks! Snapping them worked great.
