Opens oil filters from 3.25" - 2.375" Dia


Every A&P knows the importance of cutting every single oil filter open after an oil change. The problem up to now was oil filters were difficult to open and the tools to open them were expensive. This is no longer the case with the Airwolf AFC-470 oil filter cutter. The AFC-470 is the easiest and quickest way to determine the current health of the engine.

The Airwolf AFC-470 oil filter cutter is constructed out of a solid 6" billet of super strong 6061-T6 aluminum, hard anodized to resist scratches and wear. Stainless steel rollers allow the oil filter to spin effortlessly during cutting. And finally, our specially designed razor sharp cutter wheel hardened to 60 Rockwell, will make quick work of opening any oil filter. This filter is designed to last a lifetime. Fits new style oil filters

Works great. I had zero need for a vise held the filter in one hand and turned the cutter with the other. Taking small bites with the cutter wheel yields stellar results. Highly recommend.

It was too small to fit the filter from my airplane. Be sure to order the right size. It looks really well built and good quality. I will return and get the right size.

Cuts the filter cans easily, is well made and one of the nicest features is that if you put a piece of tape over the hole in the bottom of the tool base it contains any residual oil from the filter after cutting it open so it doesnt make a frigging mess everytime you use it.

I have tried less expensive cutters, this one is by far the best.

This cutter is excellent. It is far better than the last one I had. Easy to use and well built, I expect it to last a lifetime. I would definitely recommend it.
