Alpaca tooth trimmer
The tool is designed for ease of use and versatility.
1) Is lightweight (4.8lbs) and runs on AC power.
2) Easy and FAST to use - Just 2-4 seconds!
3) Eliminates stress on the alpacas, included is a wind deflector to keep tool air flow out of alpaca's or llama's face
4) Eliminates stress on the human breeder too!
5) Offers the "option" to adjust the length of teeth to within .015" if so desired
6)Grinding wheels last between 40-100 alpaca teeth trims depending how many cuts are made and the age of the animal
7)Additional grinding wheels are available
8) AND...Shhhhhhh...it takes the money out of the vet's pocket and puts it in yours!
If you have a special need for a special large mouth or crooked teeth alpaca, we can simply furnish you with a custom sized CNC machined plate.
Place tooth hole of the base plate over teeth, turn on power, and slide the tool forward. This forward motion cuts the teeth with very little stress!
Base plates with a larger standard opening are available. The larger base plate opening accommodates more irregular bites and allows for more depth of trimming and flexibility.
Replacement Wheels, shims, base plates all available.
Shown at left the kit contains everything that you need including 2 replacement wheels, a normal and large base plate, a set of shims for changing the depth of the trim, a screwdriver for changing the plate, an extra set of brushes and a wrench for changing the cutting wheel all in it's own tool box for easy carrying.
Various Plates are also available
Rope Bone used to separate jaws while trimming teeth

with a Tooth-A-Matic
1) The initial set up of the Tooth-A-Matic is very conservative relative to trimming depth. A portion of the bottom plate sits on the bottom of the lama’s mouth limiting the depth of the Tooth-A-Matic down over the incisors.
2) A large (2” diameter) rope dog chew toy works great to hold the alpacas mouth open when using t he TAM. Place the rope in the rear of the alpacas mouth to keep the mouth open and protect the tongue.
3) The lama should be well restrained; trimming teeth is never a one person job.
4) If a halter is going to be worn while trimming teeth (such as in a chute) the nose band has to be extra large to allow the lama’s mouth to open properly
5) Determine the amount of tooth to be removed in trimming prior to placing the Tooth-A-Matic over the teeth.
6) Place the Tooth-A-Matic over the lama’s incisor teeth, then turn on the tool once the Tooth-A-Matic is where you want it.
7) Hold the base plate while pushing the cutting wheel ahead.
8) Once the teeth are trimmed I rock the Tooth-A-Matic from side to side before sliding back to round the bite just a bit.
I just wanted to say that this year was our first year with our Tooth-a-Matic and it was so wonderful! we did it while our
shearer was working, and between my smaller plate and her larger we were able to do everyone who needed it in record time. When you are shearing
20 or more in one day, it is really a blessing to have teeth trimming be so quick. What a difference from the dremel! We figured we saved at least $900 since we bought it last year. Between the actual charge for trimming, meds to calm them down (which we haven't had to use at all with the Tooth-a-Matic, in fact we even use it during herd health day without the restraints of the shearing table) gas to the vet, and after care for stress, it really adds up. No relation here, just a happy customer!

|I’m in need of another Tooth-a-Matic. I let my shearer use mine and he loved it so much he bought it from me.

Tooth-a-Matic worked great! I used it on a couple of mine and also a couple times while I was shearing the other day!
By the way do you sharpen combs and cutters? If not do you know anybody that does? I think I'm going to invest in my own sharpening stuff next year but until then I have to find somebody. Have another 100 animals to do!!
