Sometimes I slot my stays by hand and sometimes I use the lathe. I’ve got a pretty good setup for the lathe that’s quick and repeatable so I do more that way although doing them by hand (hacksaw and file) isn’t much slower.

I find a get a more accurate cut on the lathe and since I don’t change the settings between stays, it’s easier to get a nice matching pair.
