Oil Filter Cutter Review
If you do any racing or performance driving it can be useful to have an understanding of what ends up in your oil filter. In the olden days I used a thin blade cut off tool to chop them open. Not without a bunch of mess and smoke. The easier way is to use a removable filter that is not housed in a canister like some of the Canton-Mecca filters. These filters just pull apart and are very easy to inspect. Here is a quick review of the Longacres Filter Cutter.
If you can't do that pick up one of the numerous available filter cutters. Aircraft mechanics have been using these things for years and now they are relatively inexpensive. The one I picked up was from Longacres, and picked it up at Amazon. A few different style are made, but the Longacres version looked good and well made and was mid price point. Below are some of the images and comments.
And YES it will open a can of soup in a pinch! (Just use it upside down)
