The TensilkuT II represents the greatest change to the machine since its inception, without any change to its principal or accuracy.

As with previous models, basic components of the machine include a motor operating in excess of 20,000 RPM, and a fluted carbide cutting tool with a high rake angle producing more than one thousand cuts per second. Individual chips become fine shavings, thus inducing no cold working to the specimen edges.

The 31/4  horsepower motor which is used in this machine is enhanced by a built in motor speed regulator, infinitely variable from 10% to full speed. This motor speed regulator can increase cutter life and improve surface finishes of certain metals and non-metallics. It also helps alleviate problems caused by heat buildup in the Tensilbit under some operating conditions.

A built-in lubricating/cooling system is installed on the TensilkuT ll. It is most often used for cooling of metal samples during the cutting process; it also helps reduce the amount of dust generated while preparing kevlar or fiberglass specimens. The brass nozzle and neoprene hoses are installed through the control head to permit misting of the specimens and cutter simultaneously; a one quart fluid reservoir is mounted within the cabinet, easily accessible for refill of the lubricant.

A special sound deadening system has been installed inside the cabinet to greatly muffle motor noise.

A built in chip collection system reduces the volume of debris thrown from Tensilbit through a slot built in behind it. This can be used to pick up either dry chips or the wet chips which are produced when te lubricating system is used. The suction power of this system can be varied to accommodate the volume and weight of material being removed.

An acrylic shield surrounds the control head of the machine, protecting both the operator and the surroundings. Because the acrylic is clear, it does not reduce operator visibility.
