Cut clean, consistent 2" (50.8mm) discs that release quickly and easily with this disc cutter. The Swanstrom disc cutter is manufactured in the USA and provides decades of consistent service.
• The top and bottom plates, and punch are made of S7 shock-resistant tool steel through hardened to 55HRC.
This disc cutter is great for soft materials up to 10 gauge (2.59mm) and is an ideal partner for Bonny Doon non-conforming dies; it is specially designed for use in a Bonny Doon hydraulic press and should be used ONLY in a hydraulic or arbor press.
The Swanstrom disc cutter offers punches with 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 while prolonging the service life of the disc cutter.
The block 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.
A 2" (50.8mm) center-positioning die is included to allow you to make perfectly centered concentric ring (washer) components. Simply punch a hole in your sheet with a die the size of your desired inner ring diameter. Then move the metal to this punch, using the positioning die to perfectly center the metal. Clamp the metal securely and punch the 2" (50.8mm) outside ring size.
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.
• Always use BurLife® on the cutting edges of your punches to keep them cutting cleanly and efficiently for years to come.
