the cutters are mounted to a plate
that spins on the side
the ‘tables’(as in jointer)
are the fence too
cutters are set to ‘outfeed’ flush
‘infeed’ can be adjusted for depth of cut

works just like a jointer
but only sideways
the cutters are like tooling cutters
(1/4”x1/4” by maybe 1 1/2” long
they can be end ground at an angle
and reset flush to ‘outfeed’ face
the disk rotates
and the cutters swipe the work
like one of those round slicer-dicers

i always wanted one
but they quit making them
by the time i had the money

the one in your craigs list looks good

Leave it to Patron to know what the heck the thing is, what it does and how to make it work. LOL You go Patron! An amazing amount of knowledge exists in the brains around L/J.

seeing as how they aren’t made anymore, and the relative obscurity of these, I bet it’s real hard to get new knives for it… I’ll have to let this one go, although I am sure it is a great deal.

the bits are
tool cutters like in most metalworking machines

cheap and easy to find and grind sharp
they are set with an allen screw

And no surprise that SoCal actually owns one of these monsters. Hey Rob, I think will to visit and fill up my Lear jet with some wood that I pick out and you can teach me how to run this adabolator of yours. :) Okay- maybe not right away though, I am still working on the problem of the Lear jet acquisition.

As few people actually know what it is, you might call and offer a lower price as it probably won’t get many calls.

The lear jet…I’ve got an extra in the barn if you need it.
