What Is A Slitter? What Is A Slitting Tool?

What Is
multi-plane slitter
Home > Tool Dictionary / Tool Terminology


A slitter is an attachment found on multi-planes such as the Record 405, Stanley 45 and Stanley 55 multi-planes.

The slitter is used for slitting off thin strips of wood. The idea and benefit of the slitting tool function is it replaces the need of sawing off a thin strip of timber and it does so in a fast and accurate way.

When invented, this slitting attachment was particularly aimed to help with the fitting of doors and windows.

The slitters can usually be adjusted to different depths.

The slitter usually has a triangle or 'vee' shaped profile with a bevel either side of the triangles point.
