adjustable circle cutter

Review Summary

I've used this circle cutter for many years now and they do a pretty good job of cutting holes in stock , mounted in your drill press chuck.They cut a little slow but they do get the job done. I've never had to sharpen the cutter on mine as long as I've had it. This cutter works wonders for cutting out wheels for your home made toys or for drilling the odd sized hole that your hole saw won't do.
Rockler sells one of these that looks like it's made by the same Co., except that there asking $35.00 for theirs. Like any tool you see on this site or any other shop before you buy for the best price.

Heavy Duty and Adjustable

Review Summary

This heavy duty circle cutter is a great asset for any woodworking shop. It can be adjusted to various sizes, even for holes that drill sizes are not available. This particular model adjust from 1 3/4" to & 7 7/8" verses the small circle cutter that adjusts from 1" to 6". It adjusts easily to your specifications with an allen wrench thats included. I have used this on a variety of projects with great results.
You can use in a drill press or per instructions; recommended to be used in drills with a handle to prevent accidents.
