Lancer plus replaced the lancer. The plus has rounded guides for the key head clamps rather than flat ones on the old lancer. The plus has a dead mans switch on the handle.

The ward cutters are interchangeable on both machines.

Personally I prefer the old lancer. Just feels better in use to me. But that's probably because I used one for so long.

Thanks!

 

 

But are you sure about the above? Places seem to sell two separate cutters as I linked?

Both machines have the same thread on the output shaft for the ward cutter. The top hat cutter screws straight onto it. If your using the flat cutter there is an adapter that screws onto it. The flat cutter gets screwed onto that

The Lancer & Lancer Plus do share cutters. The Lancer plus comes with a blade, collar and pin, whereas the original Lancer came with a one piece 'top hat' cutter. As the blade is almost exclusively the only part that needs replacing it enables us to supply replacements at a much better price to you. If you have the older style top hat cutter and wish to convert it over, speak with your distributor.

Sounds like I have a hybrid machine - something between a Lancer and a Lancer Plus - but it's badged as a Lancer Plus.
