It's actually really strong. It's between sheet metal and foil, so really really thin sheet metal or very strong foil I guess. It can be cut reasonably easily with scissors though.
Folding it over is a [female doggy], I tried already.

I tried using a hole saw too (minus the centre drillbit)...that was a bit too messy haha :P

Why don't you use a compass to mark out the hole, then use a stanley knife to cut it? :D

Or even better..use a cutting compass?

You might run into problems with the small hole in the center weakening the disk

Leakage would be really insignificant really, if you were careful you'd probably get more leakage from the teflon tape, which is useless.

I'm going to have to say a compass is the best idea. Buy one that has cutting blades with it. Now simply use a chunk of rubber to stick the (pin/center) in and protect the material, hold the rubber there and rotate around.

Would be quick and accurate..

A block of wood plus a sharpened bit of pipe.

Foil on the block, whack sharpened pipe into it to stamp out a circle. Fix up the other end of the pipe so it doesn't get mauled by the hammer.

Compass wont work, even with a nice blade. I tried to use a stanley knife and it didn't help at all haha.

Sounds like a good idea Hotwired, come to think of it I might have some metal pipe that has a similar diameter as the disks.

edit: Didn't work. Sharpened the sh|t out of the metal pipe and gave it more than a few good whacks...nothing. Made quite an impression but it didn't even go through.

I've just cut the sheet in to about 8 strips, each can get about 8-10 disks out of them. Gonna do this the old fashioned way I guess...

Did it the old fashioned way, 86 disks in 60 minutes. Not too bad, was watching TV as well. Probably can do about 110 if it was all I was doing.
At 4x mixes, can do about 43 firings. At 8x mix about 21.

New pictures added. I gave it a paintjob, which didn't do too well when I decided to take it apart again and I can't be bothered painting it again. Anyway, I also added a fuel regulator for the air input, just makes things easier.
