Spotlight Review

"This Sprue cutter makes life easier."
This Testors Sprue Cutter is an excellent tool for plastic kits, it makes very clean cuts, it only needs a little sanding after cutting. It works perfect with large to medium pieces. I build 1/72 models, and I do not recommend it for the smaller parts of that scale, it will break them, however, you will not regret having bought it.

"Great cutters and a must have for all plastic modelers"
These were my first cutters and I still use them to this day. It is priced right and a great value for what it does. This cutter is small enough to fit into tight areas and sharp enough to cut through all plastics. I can rotate the cutter in my palm 180 degrees to change the cutting angle/side when separating parts on a tree. I have used it to cut and trim plastic parts when I scratch build.

"An average tool"
The cutter I received seems a bit dull to me. I have quite a few different cutters that I use depending on the sprue attachment and they all do a nice job of cutting through the plastic. This one from Testors does not have as fine an edge. I find it pinches through the plastic more so than cutting. Again, depending on what I am using it for, it is adequate.
