The Strippit "Notch-Rite" Saga
In early 1980's Strippit Sold Notcher Machines made here in USA by Sister Company Di-Acro, which was also owned by Houdaille Industries. Di-Acro Notchers used 4 Rectangle Blades that could be Flipped 4-Times to give you 4 Edges before needing Sharpening, like any Good Shear Machine.
Then, Houdaille Killed Di-Acro, so Strippit Imported these Notch-Rite Machines from Italy.
Not bad Machines, but for some Unknown Reason, Blades had Goofy Angles & Curves on All 4 Blades, so you could Not Flip them 4 Times. Blades for this Italian Machine are Shown Below.
In Strippit's Quest to ever make Machines Cheaper, Production was Moved again to Taiwan China.
Machines were similar, but somehow, design was changed for the 3rd time. Blades are Sorta Rectangular, but are Different from other 2 types, how Stupid. To try and Help 1 of Strippit's Own Customers, I Talked to Strippit about these Machines & Parts, but Strippit Seems Clueless.
As there is No Parts or Service or Support from Strippit on these Machines, I would get my 9-Cents a Pound at Scrap-Yard for them, and Buy a Good German Notch Machine with Extra Set of Blades.
