Review Advanced Key Cutter by VOC1794 – Advanced Key Cutter Reviews

posted by VOC1794 on 12/13/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It does exactly what is has to do. The key cuts have the right angle. An indicator on the cutter helps you to align the exact position where to cut and how 'deep' your cut must be. The cutter has robust support to keep the mechanism in place.
Cons:
This cutter is not capable to cut large cuts at ones. It will bend or deform your key, so it no longer fits in the keyhole. Nibbling piece by piece keeps your key straight. Don't forget to deburr your key at the end.
Other:
Adding a force amplification mechanism would be a pre. Adding a possibility to fasten the cutter in a vise.
Bottomline:
Nicely finished tool. A little to expensive for its quality and performance. To be honest, it does what it should do if you follow the instruction in my cons.
