I forgot to mention in my initial post that one of the benefits of using my band saw for these cuts was that I could easily hook up my shop vacuum to the band saw and vacuum away most of the fiberglass dust while cutting. Always use a mask -- that fiberglass dust is nasty stuff. I agree that the Dremel tool with cutting wheel works -- especially for the curvy cuts.
