Please Note: This is a PDF document with the plans to build the chopper.
This DIY glass cane chopper is my solution to hand soreness and fatigue from using standard nippers and it is a fraction of the cost of larger mechanical murrini choppers. It works well for me and I have done my best to include all the information you'll need to make one for yourself. It is designed to cut glass rods up to 3/8" in diameter and works somewhat like a guillotine. It is easy to build with readily available hardware and basic tools. In this e-book I provide detailed material lists, diagrams, recommended tools, info on testing and adjusting it and easy to follow step by step instructions with over 100 photographs. Even those with no building experience can make one!
