    Ok i want some advice as I am about to be confronted by a new task in February where I will be required to cleanly cut down sheets of large format film 8x10" into 5x7" & 8x10" inch 4x5". I am wanting to know if anyone else has experience cutting sheet film down to different sizes and what is the best method for doing this? I was thinking of having size guides on the board of my roller guillotine and cutting it this way but am fearful of scratches. What are the ways others have tackled this issue?
