The combination bar puller/cut-off tool for CNC from Somma Tool Company is built to reduce cycle times because there is no need to index between cut-off and pulling operations. A single screw adjustment allows the jaws to be set up and adjusted for the next job. One turn of the screw moves both jaws in or out exactly 0.1". According to the company, screw adjustment is infinitely adjustable as opposed to serrated designs that have adjustment limitations. The tool will accept various brands of insert-style, cut-off blades as well as jaws and jaw fingers.
