Abstract

A wafering machine has a bank of parallel blades 3 which are separated by a distance equal to the desired thickness of the ultimately severed core element. The work piece 4 is held on a support 5 which pivots about a fixed pin 6, and is urged toward the bank of blades 3 by an air cylinder 7. The blades 3 reciprocate, as indicated by arrow 8.
