Stortz 95-FB Slate Cutter
Finally, a slate cutter that will cut both concave and convex curves (remove the side supports first) and can be used standing up, without a base. This is a great all-around slate cutter based on an improved version of the old classic Pearson design. Overall length is 25 inches. Cutting blade length is 4 inches.
Features: flared base, improved durability, new punch location, ability to tuck flared base in tool belt allows for extra versatility (such as standing while cutting) when cutting on the roof. The tough, heat treated blade is removable and can be replaced, as can the punch. Curved blade gives excellent "bite" on the toughest slate varieties up to 3/8-inch thick. Good for cutting smaller pieces to be fitted around chimneys or valleys.
Two pieces of angle iron (included) can be attached to the bottom section by means of pre-drilled screw holes, at the option of the user.
