I have the Master Airscrew one CdnFlyer posted above. I think my only gripe with this stripper is the blade can rotate upwards if you put too much force on it. With practice though, you can produce clean straight cuts.

Re: Balsa Stripper Suggestions

Thanks for all the replies guys.

I did a google search and found a few different designs and ended up making my own. I have only used it for some 1/16" thick stips so far but it seems to work pretty well.

I have attached some pictures to show you what I made. I can adjust the widthe of the strips by slidding one of the pieces. The base is some melamine shelving and to stop the cutting blade from wandering I have the tip pushed into a piece of hardwood dowel I put in the base.
