Default Cutting Korkers

OK guys, how do you all cut your korkers? THey are easy enough to make , but we have an order with about a thousand of them and cutting them up is taking FOREVER! Thanks in advance.

Some people use a woodburner to cut korkers so it cuts and heat seals at the same time. Some people also measure by counting the number of korks instead of having to measure each one with a ruler before cutting.
I feel your pain though, it takes me a long time to cut korkers too!

Woodburner! Once you get the hang of it you'll be asking yourself how you every did it the "other" way.

I use a woodburner too. I have a metal ruler attached to a glass cutting board and I can fly through them now. Once you get the hang of it you can too!

Definitely woodburner! It has shaved TONS of time off of making them!

Although a woodburner is the fastest method, I cannot manage to get them to look right. I use a rotary cutter and then seal the ends with a lighter. Takes a little longer but I love the look after. Here is a pic of mine.
