So, I was having issues cutting my HS perfectly, even using a tool like LutroO, it still required making the cut manually which leaves room for misses.

I found this cool guillotine-like tool on Amazon that is used for making precise cuts in model-making. I just need to add some stop block on right side for my sizes, but it cuts straight lines perfectly every time. And it uses cheap standard blades.

I would like to add adjustable stops on the right side. I think a merging of this and the one LutroO sells would be awesome. Wonder if the handle/blade assembly can be bought separately?

Anyways, thought you guys might be interested.

Its $30 on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006O5SHK/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Here are some pics of mine in use.

i love it, i was just looking for this, same type of thing, right before i found your thread i found the Chopper III

they also have the chopper and the chopper II

same thing, same ish price

but point is i was worried if it would work glad i have confirmation

http://makezine.com/magazine/cut-heatshrink-and-wire/

that also shows how to cut wire to length ~!

it shows the HS but not in close enough detail to tell me if it would look good enough if that makes sense ....

That Chopper III looks really nice. The adjustable stops and jigs looks handy. If Id seen that I prob would have gone that route instead.

i just got mine, looks easy to make but meh i have to admit i like it, and like even more i didnt have to make it,

i bought some metal adhesive measuring tapes ( metric ) both l>r and r>l

ill try to post up some pics and some dimensions as i could find NONE when i was looking but seriously impressed, for the price though i wish they would of given 2 sets opf stops, i dont think they are worth 5+shipping but i will be buying anyway :/ unless i can make something better
