hello again, do you know of any supplier of equipment that can cut an ice block (150 kg) to cube ice sizes ? i now there are many cube and tube ice equipments, but we just want to use a portion of our excess plant capacity during our off peak season, and thought of converting,if possible our excess block ice to cube ice. if any of you had any experience (good and bad), and are willing to share them, it would be most appreciated. thank you

Interesting topic and not one that I have any knowledge of but the following link shows that many minds have been busy shaping ice for years..

Can you make up something along the lines of a hot wire cutter, a grid to make two sides and a long cutter to separate it from the block?
