After recieving a few questions about the previous video I realized I may have left out some details about the cutter. So in this video I better explain how to dimension the cutter and pick the steel.

Thanks for the video Carter. I used stainless steel on mine and it worked just fine too.

Greatly appreciate the clarification of the details. Although they may be simple in nature they make things much clearer. Another good job. Thanks

Great Videos Carter,

Thanks for the awesome Ideas. Just one small doubt. IS the cutter beveled on both edges? or just one edge? Am a bit confused! Can you please help me out! I am stuck at this point!

Have your say...
