I want to cut several hundred accurately sized "washers" from fine (more than 300) stainless mesh, about 35mm OD and 15mm ID.
Any suggestions as to how?
I thought of cutting squares, stacking layers, glueing them together, machining into a hollow cylinder of the correct size, then ungluing them somehow, but I'm not very confident about that.
An alternative might be to use a press, but I haven't got one. I don't mind buying one - way back when, I once used a flypress for a week (the normal operator was sick) cutting out circles in sheet and punching holes and stuff - but I'd have to make the dies as well as buy a press, and center them somehow.
Is that a medium or huge amount of work?
What sort of press would I need?
Any other suggestions?
