One of the best healthy snacks I love are carrots cut in matchsticks.
In this Instructable I'll show you a gadget that you can part 3D print and when assembled cut carrots in seconds.
It's easy and safe to use even by kids.
- Caulk gun like the one I used.
If you can’t find one locally, search for “Skeleton caulk gun” on Amazon.Here is one similar to the one I used. https://goo.gl/FEKoRW
- Steel wire
- 3D printed parts

First I cut the end of the caulk gun
Then I applied some glue and slid the main 3D printed piece onto the caulk gun's side bars
I used a steel wire to make a cutting end.
There are 2 different size cutting ends included in the file.
Then I attached the plunger and screwed on the cutting end
You'll want to pump the plunger until it reaches the cutter, so you could mark the rod and cut it.
Then I glued the lever.
It will prevent the plunger going too far and damaging the cutting end.
It's perfect to cut carrots and easy to use.
Guide the carrot with hand when cutting it.
You can use different size cutting ends for different size matchsticks.
