Worked very well, nicely made. It performed like a giant tubing cutter. The cutting wheel is held on with a nyloc nut, and did not come loose when cutting open the filter.

Tried it for the first time a couple weeks ago, works great. Easy way to cut open the oil filter can without contaminating the inside with debris. Might be worth ordering a couple spare blades. Once the can is off, cut the filter material with a razor knife, pull it out, and inspect. Check any metal found with a magnet.

Very well made. Will work with male and female thread oil filters. Excellent price for such a versatile filter can cutter.

I have tried other brand filter can cutter and returned. I like to say this one of the best aviation oil filter cutter in the market. The center spindle fits right on the cutter and flush the oil filter into the cutter. The design was simple and it works well. Caution! Inspect the unit carefully and cutter blade should be included. I returned my initial order, unit was scratched and missing cutter blade. Overall excellent filter cutter.

Not a filter element cutter this is a can cutter. It works perfectly - as advertised! Yes, the blade is replaceable and comes separately wrapped in the box from Spruce.
