Good quality tool. It takes getting used to as the tool can skip off the spot weld if too much downward pressure is applied. The rotary blades are fragile/brittle and can break easily when that happens.
It cuts good and I am getting replacement blades now because the odd angles I have to use it at tends to brake teeth.
I found this cutter to be very effective.
I had to remove my core support on my 1996 4-Runner after a deer ran into it, with all of the 40 or so spot welds. Not only did it do the job fast and efficiently it lasted through all of them. I switched it around ( comes with two cutters back to back how cool is that) and it still has life left in it. My drill however does not! I would recommend this to any one and my son is going to get one just to keep in his tool box if he needs one, he's a maintenance tech.
redone fender and cab corners on 1997 Dodge Ram dump Truck, tool worked fine made my life easier Thanks !! The only 1 thing that needs inprovement is tip needs to be sharper !!, or even a small bit .
I am amazed at how fast this cuts. It took no time to cut through many spot welds. I had to use a small drill to set the point because of uneven metal, but once I learned that trick I was finished in a half an hour. Excellent tool. would buy from this company again.
Im doing a floorpan restoration on my Karmann Ghia. I purchased this cutter to make this project a little easier. This cutter works very well. I made cuts on 120 spotwelds and the cutter is still sharp, and I've only used one side so far. I did use WD-40 to keep it cool. I would highly recommend this cutter if you want to power through spotwelds
