|For #8 Screws. You know how frustrating it can be to remove a painted over screw only to wind up chipping up the paint job. But you wouldn’t have that problem if you had a set of these innovative paint cutters. They work by slicing through the paint around the head of the screw so you can remove it without chipping the paint. They have a 1/4x28 thread to fit into any angle drill or you can get the optional arbor (p/n 12-02460) for use in a drill chuck. Does not work on dome head rivets. 1 lbs (0.5Kg) shipping weight.|
these worked as they were designed to.
It REALLY works and would have gotten 5 stars except for one problem. One would think that to cut paint from an 8-32 screw one would order a #8 cutter. WRONG! You need a #10 which worked GREAT. There is nothing on the Spruce website to indicate this. There should be! And there are NO instructions with the tool. But it REALLY works. I used it when removing the tanks on my Piper. Carl
Does not work very well. When centered on a Phillips screw, cannot cut the paint without damaging the aluminum beside the head of the screw. Tried several times on different screws and could not come up with a way to remove paint without damaging the aircraft.
