Works well. Tip: Keep a little pressure on the top of the filter, towards the cutting wheel as the oil filter is turned. This keeps the wheel pressing against the side of the filter and tracking a straight cut.
Easy to use and the price is good.
Heavy duty, solid aluminum. The quality is what youd expect for a $46 tool
Works as advertised, includes the accessories required to adapt from female to male threaded filters
Perhaps I should have realized this beforehand, but the oil filters I need to cut have male threads on them that prevent the filter from sitting along the bottom of the tool so it can reach the cutting wheel. To cut a filter, as a result, I have to first hacksaw off the male threaded portion, which I have to be careful about to avoid introducing metal particles into the filter, so its not quite as streamlined a process as I expected it would be. Once the filter threads have been cut, the tool works well, but it is really designed for filters with female threads instead.
We have the replacement cutting wheel listed in the "Accessories" tab on this web page. It is part number 12-21396 and is available to order.
Yes, it will.
We do not have any information on the use of this cutter with auto filters.
This comes with a standoff that you would have to use to cut a male filter.
