David Aren's Koil Kutter (unbiased endorsement)

David Arens sold one to me a couple weeks ago, and even rapidly
resolved a minor problem. His Koil Kutter works very well, I
bought one that fits a #30 foredom handpiece and since I have a
couple of the handpieces lying around, (replaced with faro
handpieces on a couple of the flex shafts in my studio) one is
dedicated to the Kutter. David even includes a metal strip to
align the blade properly. My experience is that David’s product
is very good, his price is very fair, and his service excellent.
He asnd I had gone back and forth a couple months ago about
making a cutter attachment for my milling machine. This probably
works better. certainly less expensive and less hassle. For me it
is one of those occasional tools that makes life easier. Cutting
jump rings with a jeweler’s saw is a thing of the past. If you
make a lot of jump rings it is a must have, like the spark
lighter that Gesswein sells for lighting your torch.

I use a Unimat 3 lathe to wind the coils and bought some
mandrels from Rio which I will have to center drill on one end
for the tailstock center. I also drill a hole to take the wire
about 20mm from the end that I chuck. I bought an on/off
footswitch to control the lathe. Richard D. Hamilton
