Questions & Answers

Can this cut through a 5-gallon bucket lid?

Can this cut through a 5-gallon bucket lid?
Asked by: Adi
While I haven't tried on this per say, I'd think you'll have some difficulty as buckets are (a) thicker than usual and (b) are rounded, presenting more challenge of keeping the cutter straight. But if you sliced it many times I would think it can. EDIT: I see you said "lid" and not the bucket base itself. In that case I would be fairly confident to say it will likely get it done. I myself cut spaces into a storage container lid (by Sterilite).

will this cut a rectangle out of a sheet of polycarbonate? The reviewers describe a score and snap, not sure this would work to cut a rectangular "hole" within a sheet.
Asked by: Seymour
That would not work. Score and snap didn't even work for me on a straight piece with 20 passes. The only way you'd be able to cut a rectangle would be to score all the way through as there would be no direction you could bend to snap. The right tool would be a router with a flush cut bit.

circular cutting

I would like to know if I bring back my plastic sheet can Home Depot cut it for me in a half circle as it is for a fish tank. Thanks,
Asked by: becky
While I don't think impossible, I think that would be plenty more time consuming and also takes more care in keeping onto the round lines.

I read some of the other reviews claiming this tool is worthless, however, I can not agree with that. I purchased this tool about two months ago to be able to cut my plexiglass sheets without the table saw. This tool works just as advertised. To get the most out of this tool, it requires several light passes. You have to hold the tool at the proper angle in or for it to cut correctly. You will know this by the sound and the fact that you can see it cutting the sheet. I take about 6-7 passes and then snap the piece at the score line using the edge of my table saw. The more passes the more you ensure a clean cut. It's important to cut the plastic sheeting prior so that you don't remove it from the piece you won't be using. For that I simply use a razor to cut the sheeting at approximately the location of the score. I highly recommend trying this tool. For the price you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely perfect. I was kind of skeptical after reading all of these reviews but I gave it a shot. Not only is this a sturdy product, but it worked absolutely perfect. It's not the tool that isn't working, it's the user. I bet you all of these people that rated this product are scoring like they would with a razor knife. To have this work properly you need to place the knife on the plastic/lexan/acrylic and draw the knife towards you. It will make a rough scratchy sound as you draw it towards yourself. As you are pulling it towards you should see curly strings of plastic being removed. Repeat this 5-10 times making sure you are going edge to edge. Once finished with your passes place the line you just scored onto the edge of a table or bench and apply gentle pressure until it snaps. It should snap right on your line. I just made 48" cuts and they turned out perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All puns aside, this tool doesn't CUT it. Or much else... I bought this product in store, with a 3'x6' sheet of LEXAN, thinking this MUST be a great product to score a cut, considering that it specifically mentions the ability to cut LEXAN. Not only that, but it also mentions the thickness of .187 inches, the very thickness of my sheet, and that it would take between 7 to 10 cuts. "I can do that!" I thought. Beautiful! Well, after 22 heavily and carefully laid scores, and dulling the blade severely on both sides, I attempted to snap my sheet in two; only to have it break uncontrollably into my carefully measured area. Beautiful. Being the thick-headed individual that I am, I tried again, this time scoring it about 35 times. Same result. Only this time the piece of LEXAN managed to cut my once cut-free leg. (Perhaps this gripe should be saved for a LEXAN review.) Naturally, this ordeal has rendered my $100 useless for my purposes, caused a lot of cursing and pain, and a lot of heartbreak. Perhaps the manufacturers of this product should amend their over-ambitious instructions to NOT include sheets over 1/16" thickness and to list possible side effects of use, like: Grief, heartbreak, anger, and disgust.

I cut very specific measurements and had exact edges and clean breaks/cuts. without an issue... if you have never cut plastic/acrylic/plexi, glass or tile, then use a rotary type tool. I gave a sheet of plexi to my 13yr told him to cut me a 12" pc, (did NOT explain how) he had to read the directions, he was able to do it first time, repeating scores and a clean snap break edge... the tool works when you know how to work the tool!!!

You'll notice that most of the people who really dig this tool talk about how easy it is to cut Plexiglass (Acrylic) with it and don't understand all of the bad reviews. Most of the people who hate it say how useless it is for cutting Lexan (Polycarbonate.) These two materials, while they look similar, are extremely different. Plexiglass is easy to work with and fairly brittle, Lexan is a bit more difficult to work with, and is extremely tough. This knife works fine for plexiglass, but it's absolutely useless for cutting Lexan. If the knife's description didn't specifically say it was for cutting Lexan then I'd give it a good review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Out of the Box, works after sharpening I got this knife to cut some 0.093 mm Lexan. On my first attempt, I did 30+ scores and there was no indication that the Lexan was anywhere close to snapping the way it should. I then grabbed a file and sharpened it. After another 20 or so passes, the first of the 4 cuts I needed to do snapped off properly. After that, I grabbed a sharpening stone and oil and sharpened the edges of the knife. On my second cut, I was getting curled bits of plastic the length of the cut on every single pass and the edges were snapping off after ~10 passes. I sharpened it on the stone some more and my final cut snapped after about 10 easy passes. In short, it is useless when you purchase it, and works okay if you take the time to sharpen it with a stone. When you get a single, coiled string of Lexan after each pass of the knife, it is sharp enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Perfectly 58 years old and never cut a piece of Plexiglas till today. I stopped at Home Depot and bought this cutter even after reading the bad reviews. For $5 I figured I'd give it a try. Got it home and got my Plexiglas out. Still had the plastic protection on both sides. I laid it on my router table and pencil marked what I wanted to cut. I first tried a small corner cut first. I took about 5 pulls across the Plexiglas towards me and then about 5 away from me to make sure I got the cut clear to the edges. turned it so the cut was right on the edge of the table. Held the large piece down with one hand and bent the small piece with the other hand down and snap perfect cut. On to the cuts I wanted. Did them the same way and it worked perfectly. On the wider pieces I used a piece of wood to hold it to the table flat as I pushed down on the part not needed. I guess with 5 passes with the knife I cut through a good ways and it broke clean for me. Money well spent for me.

Seems to be the main debate is whether or not it cuts "at all." It does for regular plastic. I only used it on a standard plastic storage bin / tub (Sterilite brand), to make a few crawl spaces for a hamster "cage," on both the base part and the lid (which seems a little harder material). The lines came out sloppy, partially because I rushed it a bit, so if you want a higher level result then you are going to have to set all that up yourself. I'm wondering if those who said this thing is dull maybe got a bad version of it (??) Mine is moderately sharp, but I might think having some kind of simple sharpening stone handy would come in good if you are planning to do a LOT.
