I saw this cutter already some times on videos and other photos and it is looking interesting and useful.
Does anybody knows the brand, where can I buy, how is it named etc.?
Or maybe somebody has it and can tell, if this is a useful tool, pros and cons.....?
Thanks in advance

Many Thanks for this.......so I know that they are called Mitre Cutter.....
On the link to ebay, I can find these cutters for 20 AU$, but also up to 100 AU$, are there big quality differences in the blade and / or mechanic, or is the price difference coming mainly by the sellers calculation, means request for profit?
Means, if I want to buy one, are the more expensive ones worth the money?
Is anybody using such a tool?

Hi Uwek, I believe for model building a small and reasonably cheap one is OK. The expensive ones I believe are for heavy professional use for carpet and industrial cutting. Perhaps others who have used one can help more.

Hallo Don,
many thanks for your information about the cutter and the hint to Micro Mark......I just went through the web-page of them.....sometimes it is good to browse through such a page or catalogue, to see which small tools and helpers are available.....and you think "How could I survive until now whithout this tool? I need it! I can not work any more without it!" - Many Thanks

FYI the tool is awsome. Cutting 360 varying size bits of gun port lining was a breeze. Not ultra sharp but being able to set angles is great.

I found a model building store in Poland through Google that sells it
