Hobby & Kestrel

Hobby & KestrelThese are the workhorses of core cutting with over 500 in current use. There is a diven cutting mandrel of non-hardened steel for each diameter. Below the mandrel there is a driven shaft with up to 10 or 12 cutters mounted. The operator loads a long core and depresses a lever or hand valve to bring the cutters in to the core. The cut pieves are then removed bu hand. To speed up production and automatic strip device can be fitted. To make the machines fully automatic an input hopper can be added to some machines.The following table is a guide only as machines are built to order.
