NEW Polymer Clay Cane Slicer

 Polymer Clay Cane Slicer from KatersAcres | Handmade professional millefiori canes

A few weeks ago I posted this on my FaceBook:

finally got around to showing you that awesome birthday present my Dad, Richard Dillon, made me. He made me my very own polymer clay millefiori cane slicer! My Dad is an engineer who has designed all sorts of things in his career … and now he gets to add this awesomeness to the list.

Learn To Make Your Own Here

Features:

Made from old metal bookends, drawer slides, rulers, & some earth magnets, this cane slicer is awesome. It works unbelievably well too!

  • Sliding “base plate” that features a ceramic tile that can be removed for easy transport.
  • Removable blade so you can use a thin blade, heavy duty blade, or even wavy blades!
  • Metal housing for long lasting durability.
  • Cork pads on bottom to keep it from sliding and damaging work surface.
  • Removable ceramic tile for easy transport and better cutting.
  • “Locking” arm & base plate for easy transport; enables the unit to “hold together” and not slide apart.

See it In Action!

 

Sometimes there just aren’t enough words. Thank you Daddy, I love you!

Do you have instructions and a parts list yet? Can’t wait! (by the way, to my knowledge, I’m not related!)

Hi Katy, love your work! Please ask your dad if he is willing to share his parts/supplies list for making the cane slicer a and possible the instructions? I understand he made it as a gift but considering so many creative minds are envious of his talents perhaps he may share?

Do you sell these. They show one similar on You Tube for sale. But this one is better because the bottom part moves!! I want one how much?$$

Sorry Sandy, this is not for sale, nor will there be any more. My Dad made this just for me. Thanks for loving it so much though.

Love the slicer. Would “Daddy” be willing to share a parts list, some close up photos and general instructions? My hubby is quite handy. I think the guillotine and removeable blades are the cat’s meow. Are the blades attached via the magnets? Please share!!! Thanks

If your Dad does not want to mass produce these, could we get instructions/measurement/materials on how we could make our own? Great invention!

I have been following the development of cane slicers. This is the best method that I have seen. I and others would be interested in purchasing one. I think you will find a market, very easily,,,
