Oil Filter Cutter Added to Aicraft Spruce Catalog



 If you’re a homebuilder who regularly inspects your oil filters for possible metal traces (a good idea–see Engine Beat, April 2004), the ACS Oil Filter Cutter from Aircraft Spruce will make easy work of the job of opening filters.

The cutter will accept both male and female styles of aircraft oil filters. Filters are set on the face of the cutter against roller bearings and with a few turns of a knob, the cutter wheel bears down on the filter surface. By rotating the filter and tightening the knob, the top surface of the filter is quickly cut away, exposing the inside of the filter and any possible metal particles (which indicate that some component is wearing out).

Constructed of heavy-duty aircraft-spec aluminum, the cutters design ensures a straight, quick cut. It accepts filters from 3 1/8 to 4 inches in diameter and can be clamped to a workbench or held in a vise. All components in the cutter are replaceable, and the products sells for $78.25.
