CrazyK, I use stainless steel cutting wires on my TOG 8 wire cutter. The extreme tension they are under, as tight as a guitar string, makes clean, smooth cuts on the face of the 8 bars that are cut each time. You can tune the wires to a "note" as played on a guitar, to keep them taught. They do not waver side to side, and I place them exactly evenly spaced. It takes about 5 hours to build one of these cutters since alignment is paramount to longevity of the machine and true cuts. I have always used some form of tensioner; now I use the tuning keys.crazyk said:Hi Paul,
Got a question about this type of cutter.
I'm finding that with my blade cutter that when it gets to the bottom of the cut that the blade deflects a little in the middle and creates a small curve.
How do the wires stack up? do they give you a straight cut or do they wander a little because they are so thin?
Hope this makes sense.
