Sabre HotCut System

Sabre HotCut & Hot Knife Holder

The new SABRE HotCut System provides Hot Knife users with a safe, quick and accurate means of cutting and sealing fabrics, belting, webbing and more.

 

To build a SABRE HotCut System:

STEP 1: Select the size of SABRE HotCut required (90, 190 or 290cm). This comes complete with integral baseplate, cutting track and silicone tape for a heat resistant surface*

STEP 2: Select one of two Hot Knife holders (to suit either the HSGM or AZ Hot Knife models).

PLEASE NOTE: The Electric Hot Knife tool is not included. 


* It is recommended to use 1/4" tempered glass for a long term heat resistant surface. Heat Knives operate most efficiently on tempered glass surfaces, which do not absorb heat (unlike wood and metal surfaces), ensuring maximum blade heat for the most accurate cuts. Tempered glass is available from a local glass merchant.
