The 3” trimmer is the standard size used by micromount collectors. It is identical in design to the 6” trimmer, only scaled down in size.

The T3 trimmer is ideal for small rocks and  micromounts. Its small size and light weight allow it to be held in one's hand while trimming. That does not mean it isn't tough! Like the T6, it has a nice base with predrilled holes for mounting to a table or other work surface.

One Customer's Words:


"Ted Hadley sent me a mini-splitter to test. I've been running it through all sorts of tests and I can state that it has handled everything I've thrown at it with ease:

Syenite pegmatite - up to 1 1/2 inch pieces
Hard brecciated matrix from the Silver Coin mine - up to 1 inch pieces
Silicified barite matrix from the Silver Coin (very hard!) - up to 3/8 inch veins


All of this with normal hand tightening. I'm certain with a cheater bar and mounted down it could handle more. No sign of flaking on the cutters and it operates really smoothly.  I'm impressed by the quality of the workmanship and have already ordered a second splitter.  I'll have this at the micro meeting next week for you to look at, but it definitely gets a thumbs-up from me"
