The Dual Guide Tool Crosscut Tester is a metal shim assembly model with spacings up to 6mm, which are required for some bridge and industrial applications.
The procedure for making 3mm spaced cuts is identical to the above except two of the shims are rotated upward following each cut. Six equally spaced cuts are produced when operating in this mode. Cuts spaced at 2mm are produced by using the 1mm shims, rotated two at a time for each cut. You can have all of the following mm spacings and still have three cuts in each direction in the cross cut pattern: 1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 4.5, 5 and 6. According to discussions heard in the ASTM, the larger spacings are required in some “bridge” and industrial work.
