What do you use to cut your gel?
I use a fresh scalpel blade. But I only press down into the gel. I don't drag the blade in a cutting motion to avoid damaging the glass surface of the transluminator.

Practice helps a lot, I was quite bad too, therefore I cut several times DNA ladders not needed anymore.
Here some just mark with a first "preliminary" cut the area they need and then cut on the unilluminated surface besides the glass.
