Grafting Tool
 
Cuts up to 12mm.

Instructions for Omega / Slot Grafting:
  1. Place the branch or stem of the plant that is to be grafted into the cutting holder (figure 4)
  2. Press the lever hard to perform the cut. The cut must be sufficient to separate the two parts completely (figure 1)
  3. Never tear away any uncut bark
   4. Cut away from the good part of the plant (the scion) a graft with 1-2 buds and insert it into the host plant, in the section that has been cut to shape (figure 2)
   5. The hollow part of the cut must always be in the host plant (figure 1)
   6. In the grafted scion, the cut must be approximately 10mm from the bud (figure 1)
   7. After having fitted the two sections tightly, bind the graft with a strip of “raffia” or adhesive paper or Teflon etc (figure 3).  Cover the end of the graft with paraffin melted at a temperature of 80°C  or bind it with the materials indicated above.

 

How to change the blade:

 

   1. Loosen screws 1-2-3 on the mobile carriage (figure 4)
   2. Completely unscrew screws 4-5 and the blade holder
   3. Once the blade has been replaced, repeat the above operation in reverse order

 

Instructions for Bud Grafting:

 

   1. Please the branch or stem of the plant that is to be grafted into the cutting holder (figure 8).  Check that the bud is at centre of the external blade
   2. Press the lever hard to perform the cut.  The cut must be sufficient to separate the two parts completely (figure 5)
   3. Cut the bud away from the good part (the scion), then perform the same operation on the plant to be grafted (mother or wild plant) and insert the cut bud into the notch of the wild plant (figure 6)
   4. After having fitted the two sections tightly, bind the graft with a strip of “raffia” or adhesive paper or Teflon etc (figure 7)

   4. Take the new beat, fit it to the back of the grafting unit with rodN.4 (figure 10) a the centre and insert screws 1,2 and 3 into their respective holes in the opposite direction to that seen before (figure 10), ensuring that screw N.1 passes through rod N.4 (figure 10)
   5. Use plate N.5 (figure 9) to complete the beat and shite the tool up again using the respective bolts
