I purchased one of these on Charles Brock’s recommendation when I built a Maloof rocker. They really take the material off and are not as contrary as would appear because the teeth come straight off the surface, not an an angle. These orange ones seem to have fewer teeth than the silver one pictured above.

I also bought a smaller version, more like the end of a hotdog, that has a quarter inch shaft. Works great in a die grinder.

Back to the doughnut, one thing I learned was that a paddle-switch angle grinder is not a good choice for this cutter. I had no issues with it, but I can see it could be dangerous or disastrous. I have since purchased a slide-switch type backup AG, safer but somewhat awkward for a lefty.
