Adjustable Soil Trimmers guide the preparation of cylindrical soil samples to any desired diameter from 1 to 4in (25.4 to 101.6mm). Top and bottom platens turn freely in a rigid vertical metal frame with an adjustable trimming guide to allow precise cuts. Interchangeable Top Platens are purchased separately for finished diameters desired. The sample is centered on the bottom platen, the top platen assembly is lowered and locked into place. Small cuts are made with a trimming knife or Wire Saw as the specimen is rotated to present fresh surfaces for trimming.
Sturdy frames are secured to 6in (152mm) square aluminum bases on non-skid rubber feet. The platens feature short pins to grip the specimen and Top Platens are mounted to a height-adjustable steel rod. Both platens turn on low-friction sealed cartridge bearings with no side play, assuring precise dimensions. Order HM-266 Wire Saw for trimming.
