When using the metric reed that came with the David loom, do I use 10 epi or 12 epi?  Also, is it possible to cut down a 36? reed or is better to buy a new one?

The reed that came with your loom is a 10.  You can count how many dents there are in one inch. Yes, you can cut down a reed.  The plastic end pries off and then you can use a bread knife or hack saw to cut it down.  Afterwards replace the plastic end piece.
