How do you cut carbon fiber. I have been hearing that if you cut it close to an electric motor it will fry. Is that true?

What are you trying to cut? Sheet, rod, cloth?
I cut shafts with a hacksaw, after I wrap the area to cut with some masking tape to prevent fraying.
Cut cloth with sissors just fine, or a rotary cutter and mat.
Sheet (layed up) can be cut with a hacksaw, or a router with a small spiral bit.
Wear a mask when cutting the stuff, it is bad to breathe into your lungs! (goes for sanding too)
As for electric motors... carbon is a decent conductor and if you got a lot of dust into an open end motor it may cause a probolem, but I dont see why it would "fry" it..?
