Balsa wood stripper and cutterRated 5/5 based on 1 reviews.
Wood Strip Cutter with Micrometer Accuracy
A precision wood strip cutter for model ship planking, dollhouse flooring, model airplanes, marquetry and inlay work. One turn of the vernier hand wheel moves the blade in and out at precise .8mm increments. Cuts strips up to 13mm wide.
Comes with 1 - #11 standard blade
Made of tough glass-filled nylon.
You can make it more efficient by installing the blade at a ~25° angle rather than perpendicular to the cutting surface (as product is pictured). Also change to a #24 blade for better results.
Balsa StripperBy: Annette on 30 April 2014I have used this tool to cut strips of 2mm thick Bass Wood for flooring in a 1:48 scale shop. This was soooooo much easier and faster than using the usual craft knife and ruling and marking on a long strip of wood.
