Choosing the right tool for the job:
The Gyro-Cut® JUNIOR tool is the perfect choice for cutting all types of paper, thin card (up to 240gsm), vinyl, thin Mylar/acetate, masking tape, Tamiya tape, Duck tape, model aircraft covering film, photographs and many other thin materials. Supplied with a patented “skin friendly” hardened steel blade for accurate and detailed cuts and exceptionally long blade life. Replacement blade GC-1312 is available separately. We recommend the Gyro-Cut® JUNIOR Starter Set which includes the tool, fitted with a “skin friendly” hardened steel blade, a spare blade and a 50ml bottle of our Sticky Mat® Adhesive.
The Gyro-Cut® PRO tool offers even greater flexibility and can be fitted with your choice of three different PRO Series blades for cutting a wide variety of materials. See our “Which Blade” section to determine the best blade for your application. We recommend the Gyro-Cut® PRO Starter Set for paper, which includes the tool, a Standard Cut, hardened steel, “skin friendly” paper blade and a 50ml bottle of our Sticky Mat® Adhesive. Alternatively, we offer a Gyro-Cut® PRO Starter Set for fabric, which includes the tool, a Medium Cut tungsten carbide fabric blade, a 50ml bottle of our Sticky Mat® Adhesive and a 90g bottle of our Fab-Grip, heat-activated, powder adhesive.
Please note that the blades are NOT
