Abstract

An inexpensive, portable cutter, which can be used in laboratories and on board research vessels, has been designed to cut liner tubes longitudinally without touching the core material. The principal advantages of the cutter are: 1) a cutting head that automatically adjusts to accommodate any variations in the roundness of liner tubes regardless of their length; 2) a cutting head that can be adjusted for variations in the wall thickness of liners; 3) the speed with which liners can be cut on two sides simultaneously.
