This highly sophisticated cutter can trim and score a tremendous range of materials, from heavy-duty cardboard to aluminum and masonite. It performs every cut both precisely and rapidly. The model 5000 accomplishes this through the use of several blades that you can instantly switch between. They include a moderately sharp utility cutter that trims honeycomb plastic, sintra, thick cardboard and gatorboard with a maximum thickness of 0.5 inch. The Excalibur also features separate blades for scoring glass, mirrors and plastic. Another cutting wheel trims matboard, masonite, aluminum composite and standard aluminum. The acceptable thickness varies depending on the rigidity of a material. For example, the trimmer can score 0.25" thick glass. It's easy to learn how to use this 63-inch cutter; you can begin performing basic trimming tasks in minutes. There's no need to have a screwdriver or any other tool when changing blades. As a free bonus, the Excalibur 5000 includes a mounting kit that you can use to install it on a wall. Optionally, you may order a 3rd leg to set up the Excalibur without a wall. This model also comes with a five-year warranty.
