Soap Cutters I Dream About







This one is really awesome, but these are custom made, I assume... for the master soap makers.   Got this picture from MarieGale.com.  There's a whole series of soap cutting pictures I just love.



Then for the serious bulk soap makers, there are people who make enormous soap cubes.  This is a H1H hydraulic machine that can cut blocks of cold process soaps into bars, producing in excess of 1000 lbs of force to cut soap.  Here are pictures but you should got to the website for a look see.



cool, right?

I'm no soap maker, professional or otherwise, but I sure do drool over equipment. :)

My second tank is on it's way presently from For Crafts Sake. I have been more than happy with the products and service from them, this will be my 5th cutter that I have bought from them which in it's self says something. Each cutter has a purpose, therefore each their own personality. The workmanship on their cutters is top class.

A soap cutter is like a new addition to the family and some of us get really excited and quite attached to our cutters. I know I am.

Sharon, I am so glad you shared! It really is hard to know which place has quality goods or not. Especially judging by its website!!

Thank you thank you!!

Hi Joanna, beautiful cutters! Do you know if Tiggy's You Tube tutorials are still around? I couldn't seem to re-find them. Or do you know of some other excellent ones? thanks, sonya

We sooooooo need one of those!

No probs Jo, The tank (all metal one) is the best style of design, you don't have to worry about how long your logs are. If the cutter only cuts 10 slices, you can put a 15 bar log in it, cut the first bit and then cut the second time for the other 5. It is the best on the shoulders too as both arms are pushing equally and your body is not twisting. Less chance of RSI, I would not swap mine for anything and they last forever, mine will be still going and I will be in retirement that's for sure.

Sonya, there was some trouble with it, so we decided to take it down. You can contact her though.

You can search on this blog for tutorials or on google for soap tutorials. They are plentiful!

I am really far from these types of cutters since my batches are so small and for me and friends only, but here is the small one I would like to get. Sure it's not as efficient and cool as the ones you posted, but still, I like it. And I look at the molds regularaly to since they seem so nice.

Man I am so in need of a cutter. I am trying to save up for my first tank, but the cost to send it here including the actual product is £250, which I simply cannot afford. It's for sure the one I want though. One day eh...! xx

Man, I am so in need of a tank. I've been trying to save for one for ages but the cost for them to send it including postage is £250. We have to eat first, so my cutter is on the back-burner. One day eh...! xx
