You can save 50% of your strip wood costs. In some sizes even more.
Your own stocks of balsa can be restricted to sheet sizes only.
Now you can have all your strip wood of equal density, thereby avoiding undue tensions and warps in building. Odd sizes, as found on old foreign plans, can be custom cut. Scratch builders will find it invaluable.
Prepare a smooth surface and fix the metre long 'U' channel track with the double-sided tape provided. Formica or similar surfaces need no preparation. Bare wood or dusty surfaces need to be sealed with paint or lacquer. An alternative fixing can be effected with screws (countersunk). Select the correct spacer shim to correspond with the size you wish to cut. Place this onto the three location screws, followed by the SWANN MORTON SUPATOOL 'V' blade. Locate the blade into the cover plate before finally assembling and tightening the terminal nuts. Place a sheet of wood against the left hand side of the track, and hold it firmly in place with the left hand. Place the Blade carrier into the rail and with the right hand, draw it towards/you, remove the cut strip and repeat. Very hard or thick wood can be cut by taking several cuts from either side. The packing pieces are calculated to be able to reproduce all Imperial or Metric sizes up to 1/2 inch.
