Plastruct The Chopper Cutting Tool

The Chopper from Plastruct is one of the most useful tools a scale model builder can own for working with wood and plastic model-building materials. Get feather-free cuts of strips and rods of balsa wood and styrene.

It's a great tool when you need to create duplicates of the same size wall stud, railroad tie, window shutter, and more — just set the length stop using thumbscrew clamps and slice off the desired quantity quickly and easily.

Unlike other cutting tools, The Chopper uses a rigid handle design to ensure you get consistently square, straight, and accurately angled mitre cuts. It includes 30°, 45°, and 60° guides.

The Chopper cuts materials up to 1/8" thick. (It can cut materials with a maximum thickness of 1/4" but the manufacturer does not recommend making those cuts a frequent practice.)

Its compact base measures 7-1/2" × 7-1/2" and is made from high-quality tempered hardboard for strength, durability, and economy.

The Chopper uses easy-to-replace single-edge razor blades — no specialty or expensive cutting blades required.

Made in the USA.
