- Eastwood Skip-Proof Spot Weld Cutter Kit
Eastwood Skip-Proof Spot Weld Cutter Kit is rated out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Technical Points Well I was a little disappointed at first. Looking at the picture of this cutter I expected that it would drill a hole into the metal with that inner Bit. That doesn't really happen. It just kind of cuts into the weld and helps stabilize the cutting bit. Now this doesn't really "stabilize" it and this is not "skip-proof" either. It will skip on those sloppy factory welds, but IF you go slow it's a ton better that the other "brand". As far as life of the cutter and bit. I so far have cut about 60 to 75 weld with the first cutter. in an attempt to stabilize the cutter better I pre-drilled a pilot hole and when I plunged the cutter down, the cutter center bit broke through and that broke my weld cutter. I've used no lube, just set my cordless on low speed and I believe I could get at least 100 cuts with no problem. You WON"T be sorry if you spend the money on this very expensive cutter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sean from Works well but beware. This item works extremely well! But be forwarned, I am doing a trunk pan installation on a 72 Buick GS and I ate through 3 of these in about 112 spot weld holes. These are only good for about 30 some welds until they go dull. I used cutting fluid on every cut to provide maximum life. Work great but not long.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MarkDL from Not so skip proof I was hoping this was my answer to cutting spot welds. It really did not work any better than the cheap one I bought years ago. The center drill really does not do any thing better than the center punch on the cheap one does. If you pre drill the center it works. But that kind of defeats the purpose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gregory from Great Tool Great tool, even with cutting oil the bits will wear relatively quick, but works excellent and have broken none of the heads as of yet. will def buy heads as needed

Rated 5 out of 5 by Al H from Best cutter I've ever used. This set is far and away the best cutter I've used. The first head went through well over 60 cuts. Did use WD-40 for oil. Am on my second of the three cutters now. The pilot bit works well, in that it does not drill all the way through. This is helpful for welding the new material onto the piece you are trying to save. The key to this cutter is PATIENCE. Let the tool do the work. Don't force it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wudman from Skip-proof spot weld cutter I am very pleased with this tool. It takes plenty of patience to use this tool, especially on 65 year old spotwelds. I think you need to add a small brochure on the proper use of this tool.
