Cut clean, consistent shapes that release quickly and easily with the disc cutter that outperforms them all. The Swanstrom Disc Cutter is made in the USA of hardened and tempered, shock-resistant tool steel for decades of service.
The punches feature precision-ground surfaces, to deliver smooth edges requiring minimal clean up. The tight tolerances between the punches and the spring-loaded die plate ensure clean cuts.
The die plate clamps your metal to prevent distortion and keeps your fingers out of the way. It’s easy to open and close, so that you can adjust the cutter for your material.
Designed for soft materials up to 16 gauge (1.29mm) when using a hammer and up to 10 ga. (2.59mm) when using a Bonny Doon hydraulic press. Use a urethane pad (1/16" thick, 95 durometer; not included) under the cutters to reduce noise, support your cutters, protect your work surface, and ensure a crisp cut.
Manufactured exclusively for Rio Grande.
IMPORTANT: Always position a shim of the same thickness of the material being cut directly across from that material to keep the plates balanced and ensure a perfectly perpendicular cut.
• Protect the surfaces of your punches by using only brass-head mallets to strike them when cutting.
• Always use BurLife® on the cutting edges of your punches to keep them cutting cleanly and efficiently for years to come.
• one two-plate cutter block (4" dia. x 1-1/4"H).
