Biff A from York, PA Posted January 18, 2011
It's fast and easy to work with, I've only made a few cuts so far, but It's a breeze! Totally worth the 16 bucks. However, when making holes in wood too thick for it, made a hole through the center, to line the cutter up on the other side.

I bought this in order to cut round bases for scroll saw projects. About 2 days after I received it my wife said she needed several round bases for a craft project we were working on. I went to the garage and came back in less than 5 minutes with EXACTLY what she wanted. She was thrilled and so was I. This works great for what I need/want it to do. I can only crank my drill press down to 650 rpm but, going slow, it works just fine!

I didn't realize circle cutters existed...

Guest from Whitman, MA Posted October 29, 2007
I didn't realize circle cutters existed until I stumbled upon it on another web site. I needed to cut a 2 3/4" hole and couldn't find a Forstner bit that size at the local home store. This circle cutter is like having a bunch of bunch of new bits. Cuts a nice clean hole and works great. My observations were I wish it were a little deeper. I am cutting 1" thick holes (not 3/4") and it will not break through the other side. So I have to flip the board over and drill from the other side as well. The size adjustment can be tricky as well. I wish it had some sizing marks on the slide to give you an idea. I made due with a tape and some math. Lastly, I was concerned about the speed rating on the cutter. It says right on it to use only with a drill press and do not exceed 500 RPM. I have a craftsman bench top press and the slowest speed I have is 650 RPM. I went slow enough that it didn't seem to matter but I on occasion the blade did catch and stop the motor.
