    Working in a nursery school where the client wants 12" centered circles cut out of carpet tiles, carpet tiles are random bright colors, therefore one color circle will be inserted in another color tile that has the circe already cut out (insert)

    What is my best way of getting precise cuts that large in a carpet tile ,

    Make a template of the size you want and cut around it 1/4 plywood would work. Put a nail in the center so it don't slide on you.

    I would use templates made from Masonite.

    Edit: Daris posted about the same time I did. So we must be right. ;)

    Buy a circle cutter. I got mine from NCE but you could try other rug making companies.

    I have a NCE. I don't think it will go that small, never tried it that small. Would work like a dream if it did.

    I googled it and TFP came up! I think it’s called feedback in the audio world.

    For the Marshalltown drywall cutter I think you could use two 1/2” clamps to attach an exacto knife alongside the upright wheel, the narrow blades would work great for the tight radius. I’d also consider different size circles if it works great, little boring one size though I do like the circle creativity.

    I’d like to see the carpet tile needing to be cut into.

    How many circles? To determine cost investment/ labor.
