The profile cutter is used for trimming vacuum formed ‘plastic’. It produces a smooth, professional finish to the edge .
When a shape is vacuum formed, it is first cut out by using a band saw, this produces a rough edge. The edge is smoothed using the profile cutter.

   
STAGE ONE: Cut out the vacuum formed shape with a band saw.

   
STAGE TWO: Use the profile cutter to smooth the ‘plastic shape.

 
 
 

The guard prevents fingers making contact with the cutter, as this is extremely dangerous.

The profile cutter has two switches. Both must be ON at the same time for the cutter to work. This ensures that it cannot be turned on by accident.
