We hooked a wood working style dust collector with a 4" hose and those strips did not stand a chance. The machine equipped with a Porter Cable router and custom 60 degree cutters ate through the bamboo in impressive fashion. We did three passes on 36 strips in under and hour without any trouble. The final strips were near half their size and were still .315". After a quick sweep up and a coffee the strips headed home and Jorge feels that he saved 4-5 hours of tough sledding. This is a tool worth owning, no strip is safe with a Bellinger rougher in the house.
So if you see a guy with a one piece bamboo two handed rod about 12' ft. long spanking Gaspe Salmon in August, that would be Jorge. Look closely to see the Canadian Cane logo on his shirt.
