Can this be used to cut circles in thick cardboard? I'm working on a crafts project, and the cutters I've found so far can only score the cardboard which is a problem. I need to cut circles out of large sheets of cardboard that has the thickness of a typical cardboard box (3/4 inch thick). Thanks in advance for the help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works if you know what it is for... The review from Pete saying it only cuts 1/8" deep is right, but that is what it is intended to do. With drywall you only cut through the paper, score the gypsum and break the rest. A reviewer down the list correctly states the best way to use this tool is to score both sides then pop it with a mallet or your hand and you'll have a perfect hole. If you have to cut from one side only, you should plan on using this tool to cut as deep as you can to get a nice trim cut on the face of the drywall and then finish the cut with your knife or drywall keyhole saw. If you want to cut all the way through from the face, invest in a rotozip and the circle cutter to go with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misnamed tool. Incapable of task. This tool should be called a circle "scorer". It does NOT cut as its name implies. As some reviewers noted, it scores a circle that you can cut afterwards with a drywall saw. A marking compass would provide a more visible outline if that's the case. Pros might be able to knock out the scored material cleanly but amateurs are likely to damage the surrounding wallboard if they try. Even as a scoring tool, this one is awkward to use. The blade end requires pressure to make its mark. The tool leans or wobbles if you grasp it insufficiently. The manufacturer should include a free-spinning knob handle above the blade. The construction quality is satisfactory if you're determined to use this tool. The design/concept itself is shortsighted. Use a hole cutting saw bit with a drill instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts perfect circles I needed to cut 6 holes for recessed lighting in my kitchen and decided to purchase this tool. It saved alot of time and makes perfect circles. Helpful hint: use a nail to punch your center hole completely through the drywall and scribe the cuts on both sides of the material, then gently knock out the cutout with a hammer. Pops out clean, did'nt even need a utility knife to clean up the cuts. Great timesaving tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multipurpose circle scriber/cutter We were looking for a modest sewing tool that could be set to any diameter for marking or cutting cloth, and had about given up when looking at sewing stores. Then on a last minute thought, we looked at the tool section of HD. This unlikely looking tool was perfect. The sewing project of finished and we adapted the cutter head to hold a marking pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great I bought it for some remodeling work on a home we bought to flip. It worked just fine and was fairly easy to set up and use. For the novice, it will not cut all the way thru the drywall, but it will score it well so that you can finish the job with a drywall saw.
