  • Wadkin Mitre Trimmer

    Thanks to Gerry in Belle River I am now the happy owner of a Wadkin Mitre Trimmer. Here are the Kijiji pictures. When the mitre arrives I will post more shots. Does anyone have any catalog cuts for the trimmer?

        kmcsmart I replied to your other thread. Maybe you can get it to me and I'll get it to you.

            I have a similar machine Wallace, bit earlier and from the other side of the Atlantic.
            We seem to have a lot of US gear of this vintage in Oz.

              What are most people using these for? I have a Morso with two knives fixed position to cut a V notch or trim to length. Even with used knives in it it still cuts very clean. On a V Notch you creep up making a small cut then moving in cutting again then moving in. Previous owners made doors and windows and used it to cut the glass stops to length. I guess just cleaner than a table saw.

                Beautiful machine Henry. I love the ship's wheel. You don't see those very often.

                  Warren,
                  That is my plan for the mitre - just cleaning up to a precise mitre. That, and owning a Wadkin tool that Jack doesn't own!!!!

                        Now, that's one way to get those toenails trimmed to exactly the right angle!

                          Suggestion for you Karen is to make a set of insert guards that completely cover the cutting edge of the trimmer blades when not in use as it is too easy to stick a hand or finger in there and brush the razor edge of the knife. Particularly when attempting to lift or move it.

                              Good idea Erik. After Matt Matt has a go at the knives I am sure I will be able to split hairs.
