Downwardly directed cutting blades 18 are mounted on the underside of the blade base 14. These blades 18 can retractably project through slits 15a formed in a presser plate 15 positioned below the blade base 18. Rubber tires T.sub.1 placed on a receiver 27 are cut by the blades 18 with the presser plate 15 compressively retaining the tires T.sub.1.
