Roy, be sure you double check the edge distance on this before you cut to the print. I had to replace mine, many do.

I don't think I trimmed mine much because I needed the length for placing the rudder pedal as far aft as possible, I just cut out the lightening holes.

If I had trimmed it, it would have been on my band saw. I can cut .040 easily if I have a reasonably new metal cutting blade. The stock wood cutting blade is useless, but blades are pretty cheap and make a huge difference. It works well enough to cut the thick 3/4" bar stock that's to make the canopy wedge spacer.

The Dremel cut off wheel is a great tool though, I've used it lots. I've got through a lot of sandpaper pieces for the drum attachment, very handy in some of the awkwardly placed and sized openings.
