Cutting Tools for Modeling and Crafts (II): Saws, Guillotines, Miter Boxes and Scissors

This week we continue with the second part of the post that talks about the functional cutting tools for modeling and crafts made by Artesania Latina. This time, we leave the world of cutters to immerse ourselves in the world of saws, guillotines, miter boxes and scissors. All these tools allow you to make deeper, more difficult and more precise cuts even than cutters, so let’s get to know them all.

We start with the very useful Cutting Saw Blade with Ergonomic Handle (27042), to which the modeler can also attach our cutter blades. But the most important thing about this cutting tool is that if you use it together with the Anodized Aluminum Miter Box (27031) you will be able to obtain precise cuts of 45º and 90º. Rods, slats and other pieces will not resist the precision of the cuts. They are essential on, for example, the construction process of ship models and other types of vehicles and objects. On the video below one of our modellers shows you how to use both tools.

The blade of the saw is fine-toothed to achieve that exactness in the cuts, which is further increased with the miter box. Use both products on materials such as wood and plastic, among others. Both the saw and the miter box are made of high quality metal. We appreciate modeling and offer the highest standards to our client friends.

Perhaps the most useful cutting tool for modeling and crafts: the Vertical Guillotine or Multicutter Set (27004). It allows cutting many more materials such as sheet, rubber, cardboard, paper, plastic and, of course, wood. All cuts with the shape that is required. It has an adjustable cutting angle that goes from 45º to 90º. In this way, the modeler can create miter joints, moldings and cut the ends of the strips with the angles it is needed.

One of the essential cutting tools for model building, sewing and crafts. Specifically, even more essential for naval modeling. This is so because the Japanese Style Thread Snips (27060) is used to cut threads and fabrics on the rigging construction of any model ship with sails. The modeler who wants to assemble the sails comfortably must have these scissors at her/his workshop. For sewing tasks it is also very comfortable and effective!
