These screw cutters are AWESOME!! That about sums it up. They were designed and manufactured by Allen Elishewitz.
Allen made a few of these a while back and I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one of them. It has became one of the favorite “go to ” hand tools in my shop.
When Allen told me he was considering making another batch of these, I immediately offered to take as many as he would allow me to have, so that I could offer them up here to all of you. I didn’t get many. So, when they are gone, they are gone!!!
These are 100% made in the USA. The cutter is made from hardened D2 tool steel and the handles are a 1 piece G-10 design which has been rounded off and feel very comfortable in the hand.
The cutter is made to accept 1-72, 2-56 and 4-40 screws. It has 3 holes for each size that are countersunk to different depths for easy repeat ability of lengths.
This new version also has a detent ball plate which allows you to easily set 1/16″ and 2mm detent balls into your folder liners or frames.
