cutter/bevler

Recommended Posts

Hello I hope everybody is doing good and having a wonderful day!! I thought i'd post a picture of my string cutter/bevler I just got a week or two ago. I bought it from Bryan Neubert and i've been tickled pink with it. I've been able to cut strings down to 1/32nd with it and some down to 1/64th but I haven't been able to consitantly cut 1/64th without breaking them. I think it has more to do with the rawhide being cased just right. It has a dial on the end you use to adjust the string width ya wish to cut or bevel. So ya can really fine tune it. I bought a cheap vise to hold it with. It cost some money (no more than othr ones i've seen) but I think it's well worth it if a fella or gal plans on doing a lot of braiding. On a side note Mr. Neubert is a heck of a nice guy. He spent a great amount of time with me on the phone answering questions and just talking braiding.

Nice if you do only straight laces.

Unfortunately as a whip maker I need tapered laces so I have to cut them and bevel them by hand.

BTW does that cutter allow you to cut lace directly from the hide?

All the best

Right now I have several hunderd feet of 1/4" precut rawhide. I just split it and cut it to the width I need. But I soon as I can save up some cash I'm going to get some sides. My plans are to cut my thin stuff out of a calf oval. And for thicker strings all use a draw gauge to cut 3/4" from around a cow hide. I will then split to desired thickness and cut to width. Seeing how my computer skills are less than my braiding skills (hard to believe) what does BTW stand for. Thanks Mike

WOW! A question I actually know the answer to!

It means "By The Way". :D

@Victor: Do you cut all your strings by hand? How do you do yours?

Yup I cut everything by hand and I skive/bevel everything by hand.

I probably cut about 3,000 ft. a week or more.

Unfortunately I can't just cut my laces in one long lace and then cut them to length.

I have to cut each lace individually as they are tapered.

all the best
