Cutting tool

Postby eivind_aarseth » Fri Apr 22, 2005 5:19 am

Because of a urgent need I made a simple cutter tool for my VideoRay a couple of days ago with a wallpaper knife blade and carpet knife blade mounted on a MiniManip from Inuktun. This tool worked perfect for my mission and I managed to cut ropes up to 8 mm. Probably even more with some adjustments (knife angle etc.). It is very important though that the knife blades are very sharp (replaced very often).

I have now made some improvements and redisign of my cutting tool based on the same manipulator which makes it working much more effecient. With this tool I am able to cut from thin fishing line to 10 mm rope. The knife is an ordinary blade for cutting carpets etc.
