I searched the forum for Oil Filter Cutters with no luck. I know I can use a hack saw to cut the filter but I noticed those nifty cutters that do a better job. What brand is your favorite cutter and about how much does it cost?

Thanks

SF


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

You should browse the tools section here grin. He might not ship to Canada, but it will give you an idea since there's an Amazon link in there.

My wife bought me the JEGS filter cutter ($40) for Christmas. I've only cut open a handful so far, but it does the job. I'm sure the more expensive ones are nice too. I'm going to be cutting maybe 10 or so a year so I think it'll do just fine for my purposes.

+1 I like mine. It is fast, efficient and does not cause other damage.

The Longacre 77750 is the one I want. Not cheap, so I'll be wanting one for quite some time yet.

I have the Jegs cutter. I do not recommend it. The blade is not very hard and gets damaged easily. I have tube cutters at work that I use to cut hundreds of 301 1/2 hard steel and the blades look 10x better than my jegs blade after 3 filters.

Not any more. The # 3 Pipe cutter has been discontinued for quite a few years.

I have a Glennco Filter cutter I got off of e-bay for ~$40. It is OK, but the Longacre is the cream of the crop.
