Reviews

The best filter cutter I’ve ever used. My previous one you had to squeeze the tool like pliers well rotating it around the filter. This one uses the hole in the filter as a centerpoint and the cutting blade cuts using a knob you screw in to apply pressure to the filter. Super easy to use

I bought this to replace my Champion oil filter cutter that has a chipped cutting wheel. Ive never liked the Champion tool so instead of buying a new cutting wheel, I thought Id try out the Tempest tool. The Champion tool is just difficult to use. It doesnt operate smoothly, and the oil filter base that gets cut off always sticks in the tools threaded stud requiring a bit of effort to remove. Ive only used this Tempest oil filter cutter once, but wow, was it effective! I love it!

I give the tool 5 stars for quality and feel the product will last. But, the clip that holds the cutter wheel came off the first usage.

Worked just as expected. Easily cut open the can and freed the filter. Should be good for years to come. I used a serrated kitchen knife to then cut the filter out C172/C182 pilot

Seems well made and was easy to use. (If you don’t have a vise, you’ll need one.) The price is a bit high in my opinion.

This unit has a dowel for centering. It works but I prefer the Champion tool that screws into the filter.

This thing is junk. The base is really well made but the cutting wheel won’t stay in and it keeps changing it’s cutting angle so it doesn’t cut in the same spot. I’ll have to return it and get a different one

The can cutter was improperly manufactured and unusable. Spoke directly with Josh @ Tempest support. The cutter will not tighten down onto the filter due to the jam nut not being properly locked in a specific position at the factory. As a result, it is not an oil filter cutter, rather a hunk of pretty metal. Avoid it and buy the Airwolf product instead that works excellently.
