At Bond Products we offer a wide variety of tools for making carpet installation easier. In order to install new flooring, though, often you have to remove the old. What products are best for carpet cutting beyond your basic utility knife? In this blog we will go through the options, from the affordable, lower-tech products to ones that are more complex and powerful.
Your Carpet Cutting Options
People automatically think of scissors or shears when they think of cutting, and Bond has them! Our smooth-cut shears are made of sharp stainless steel and versatile, great for rug work and cutting carpet.
One of the most popular and affordable carpet cutters we have is the needle nose cushion back cutter. It has a point that separates carpet fibers when you push the tool through the pile, splitting the carpet evenly to create a nice, straight cut. Its firm, grippable handle won’t slip in your hand either.
Our motorized tool, the Bond Model 1925-A Cordless Carpet Cutter is wonderful for cutting through stubborn carpeting, padding, or hair padding on a concrete floor. This portable, cordless cutter sharpens itself with the touch of a button and comes with a rechargeable battery and charger. If you want to save time (and money!) on your carpet jobs, this tool will help.
The cordless carpet cutter has two optional attachments, a 90-degree wall trimmer and a single-strip cove base cutter, to meet those tougher cutting challenges. We also recommend purchasing a second battery so you never need to pause your project to recharge it.
If you’re looking for a “big gun” carpet cutting solution, we also offer the Bond #840 Carpet Pattern Cutter (carpet jigsaw). People do not immediately think of using a jigsaw to cut carpet, but this type of tool offers a very accurate cut through two layers at a time. It can also be used to cut leather, polystyrene, or cardboard. Bond’s 110V carpet pattern cutter offers variable speed and a lock-on trigger switch. It can perform 95% of what more expensive scroll saws do for a much smaller investment. This is a portable and lightweight tool that will save you time and money!
