Whitfield Wylie 970 Rounder M/C


Recommended Posts

Manufactured by WHB in 1985, this is basically an electric motor, mounted on a steel support that is secured to the Whitfield press bench, the cutter is of a square shape & fitted direct to the shaft by way of a thread

The machine may also be refered to as a "(K)nibbler"

Yes they are very dangerous until you get used to them, and know how to adjust them properly. Had many accidents with ladies shoes going under the guard and cuttin a chunk out of the upper. But given the choice I would prefer to have one than not. Same goes for the Auto Soler, would not like be without one of those if I was still operating.

Bloody dangerous them things. Used one in my "T" days, can't believe health & safety allow them. I suppose they're ok in the right hands. wouldn't let a trainee near one!!!! :lol:

Been using this machine over twentyfive years and never had a problem, I've never cut or trimmed anything other than what I was supposed to, just need to get a new cutter on it soon, wonder if I can get a Tungsten Carbide one made up, that'll last till I retire
