Mine is made of a block of aluminum, a steel pipe cutter wheel and a thumb screw. Could be made at home cheap enough.

I just use tin snips to cut the rolled lip. Works well for me and it doesn't cost me a thing

This ^

Tin snips are your cheapest option and aren't hard to use. Probably takes me 5 minutes. Could probably be had less than $10 at harbor freight

With $75 budget, I consider the Longacre to be the crème de la crème of filter cutters. The Summit/Jegs/ebay less expensive, however I've found on smaller diameter filters, the filter doesn't reach the guide wheels. Yeah it still works, filter edge hits guide bar, but not smoothly. At least one member modified wheels on the guide bar, bigger, closer together.

Me, I'm still using my made in Taiwan HF exhaust cut off tool I bought in 2010 for $15. The later model made in China were junk. Now discontinued.

Hmmm $12.95 sounds a lot better that forty to seventy dollars.
