I was hoping this tutorial would be good as I wanted a relatively inexpensive, better way to cut canes than doing it entirely by hand. I’ve seen the video of this cane slicer, and it looks as though it works OK. However, there is some critical information missing from the instructions regarding component specs. As far as using the cutter, it relies on the eye of the operator to make precise cuts. Yes, there are microrulers, but you still have to use your eye to line up the cane and blade for each slice. And the drawer slides don’t always advance smoothly, so there can be a lot of adjusting to do. In the end, I scrapped the device and designed and made a cutter with a dial-controlled moving bed. It only costs $15 more and gives far greater precision. FYI: I am a metalsmith and have a well-equipped shop. For those not so fortunate, this tutorial may be a good buy. But be sure to read through it carefully and figure out the missing specs, or you could end up purchasing things that don’t fit. [If you have tried this tutorial and have a different opinion, good for you. But please, no hate mail for my honest opinion.]
