The swedish slate machine :)

Post by Edlund » Tue Jul 03, 2007 8:27 pm

I always used a "vinkelslip" dont know the name in english but a handmachine for cutting slates.It was ok but only that.Sometimes it was hard to get it straight, then gugge from the forum told me about cuttermachine in a swedish store.So i bought it today.The slate cut was perfect and i was like cutting in butter :) .So i just wanna share som pics to u about my machine and the cutting and final results

Looking good there, Edlund :)

I am also curious about the cost :)

I think "vinkelslip" is "angle grinder"?

Obviously we at Zebrapleco.com do not condone the use of Safety Glasses during the use of such machinery ;-) :lol:

Very nice pictorial description, cheers.
