    I'm currently in the process of getting all the equipment for developing
    my own pcb's.

    Just one question about the riston boards. I dont have a metal
    guillotine, probably use a hacksaw.

    I would like to cut out portions of unexposed board & keep for later
    projects as I would like to tackle one circuit at a time.
    Is it wise to do this, or better to wait to have a collection of circuits
    and expose the whole board.

    Also this will be my first time, so I would probably have to cut out a
    strip of undeveloped board anyways to test my exposure times.

    I cut off pieces from a larger sheet as I need them, by scoring with a
    Stanley knife on both sides and snapping the material.

    Here is how I do my boards...

    As far as cutting, I mark both sides then score both of them with a
    dremel cutoff wheel. Breaks really clean that way.
