The Evans Midwest Model 5010 Laminate Slitter, a benchtop-mounted machine, is a revolutionary tool in the field of high-pressure laminate or wood veneer cutting. With its advanced three-blade sheer cutting system, this model is designed for high efficiency and precision, marking a significant step forward in the woodworking and laminating industries. It operates at a rate of 70 feet per minute, powered by a 1/2 HP motor, and runs on a standard 120 V, 1 PH, 60 Hz electrical setup. The machine’s ability to cut materials ranging from 1/4″ to 6″ in size, combined with its user-friendly design, makes it an ideal choice for various professional settings.

One of the most impressive features of the 5010 Laminate Slitter is its self-aligning fence, which is adjustable in 1/32” increments and can accommodate cuts up to 6 inches. This feature, mounted on a linear guide, ensures precision and consistency in every cut, making it highly suitable for detailed work such as inlay projects. The self-feeding capability of the machine, facilitated by the unique shearing action of its blades, enhances productivity and provides a clean, premium-quality edge. This efficiency has been shown to significantly reduce labor costs while boosting production.
