My Stick/Biltong/Jerky Cutter

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I been wanting to make one of these for sometime now. So with some down time today i made one out of oak.

 

I went to 4 hardware stores trying to find a new plane blade...HA Good luck. So i took one from a small plane and wire wheeled it for this cutter.

 

This is a working protoype cutter

Used brass deck screw to assemble, no glue. All the other hardware is SS.

Got 2 coats of oil on it, rubbed the blade down with lard and re assembled it. Tomorrow i will get some SS wing nuts.

I like the plane blade but its hard to keep from turning dark with oxidation.

 

SO

 

I have a blade and handle re design in the works. This is a 4" SS pizza cutter wheel. I put a better edge on it. Going to add some safety into the re design of the handle.

You certainly have a lot of time on your hands.

 

How about putting a slot in the handle so it could slide back & forth on the screw like a radial arm saw?

 

Or cut a slot in the base so the blade can go down into the recess?

Works good. I put a better edge on the blade. Way better this way than the plane blade.
