The Adapter series is used on machines equipped with 3” air mandrels. For orders requiring larger cores, it is a less expensive option rather than buying larger expensive mandrels.

The Mechanical Specialties’ classic Manual Core Cutter Machine is now even better with a fresh new look and new features. Still the same uniform, accurate, clean cut without burrs. Simple to use and built to last.We also build custom machines.

Our core cutter eliminates the constant replacement of cutting knives because of the combination of our unique cutting platen and limitation roller.
