Title: Anyone have experience with the “Wonder Cutter” from Micromark?
Post by: PantherM100 on January 26, 2022, 01:03:23 PM
Hi Guys:
Just wondering whether anyone has had good or bad experience
With the “Wonder Cutter” by Micromark.
I guess it’s like an exacto blade with ultrasonic enhancement
Mostly interested in cutting print wood parts from 1/8” thick
Or less.
Sincerely,
Jon B Shereshaw

If you want to spend over £300.00 on a fancy exacto knife, knock yourself out.

Interesting all the same .... I can imagine it making short work of rib and former notches using the 'plunge' method that I use.

Wondering what the ultrasound does to one's fingers.

If it really works that well, I'd guess one could make something similar with some kind of solenoid and a high frequency AC power source. I wonder if it really needs to be ultrasonic? Maybe just use a transformer using house current. The transformer, of course, should be set up to isolate the solenoid from the high voltage. For a real kluge, how about a high speed motor with an eccentric weight? Making a handle that protected your fingers from most of the vibrations, without being fsloppy, might be a challenge.
