How to cut license plates??
I have a bunch of old license plates I am going to be cutting up for an art project. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to cut these plates? I have been told that regular tin snips would work but some said to use a band saw that has a metal blade. I am going to be cutting these plates and making a map of the united states for my son’s room but not sure what will work best. My father in law has a band saw and if I buy a metal blade I guess that would work but dont know. Any ideas???? Thanks.

Go with a good pair of tin snips. I think they would be safer, and you can take your time.

Get a knife and put it over a flame for about a minute, to make sure its hot, then apply it to the license plate, it will melt through the license plate and therefore cut it up into the shape you like. hope that helped!
Anyone answer mines!

Tin snips work good, but some plate like OHIO are thick steel and might require something heavier, or maybe an angle grinder
How could I get the traps from the SAW movies?
How could I get the traps from the saw movies? I’m mostly interested in the venus fly trap and and angel trap.
Any engineers think they could give me ideas on the best metals and what is needed to shap spikes and cuffs?
I’m not really worried about the ‘release’ mechanisms so you can ignore those
