- 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 Bliss slits all kinds of rug material uniformly. Use discarded clothing, blankets, or remnants. Cuts heavy and lightweight materials equally well.
The Bliss 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.
