  • Adjustable- A twist of the tension screw adjusts cutter to any thickness of material. Varying strip widths obtained by changing cutter head.
  • Uniform Slitting- Saves hours over scissors method. Cuts narrower and more evenly. Clean smooth slitting… strips hook easier. Loops are more uniform.
  • Safe to Operate- No exposed gears to crush careless fingers. A child can operate it without danger. Positive safety feature prevents cutting fingers or hands.
  • All Rug Materials- The Fraser slits all kinds of rug material uniformly. Use discarded clothing, blankets, or remnants. Cuts heavy and lightweight materials equally well.

The Fraser mechanism is designed to give trouble-free service for many years. Cutter shaft is housed in needle bearings and the pressure roller has a needle bearing which needs a few drops of 3 in 1 oil in it occasionally.

The cutter heads are made of special steel designed for this type of cutting, are hardened clear through, and precision ground to accurate “aircraft” specifications.
Comes with a choice of cutter head, wrench and instructions.


Made and manufactured in the USA since 1947.
