back to top
MacInnes cutting wheels are made with absolute
dedication to precision and quality. Made from ultra fine
carbide, they are produced by a proprietary process that gives you
the sharpest wheel for the task at hand, coupled with exceptional
durability and life. The wheel surface (greatly enlarged at
left) shows the perfectly machined angle and the special surface
finish that gives the wheel the proper traction.
are made in 5/32 and 7/32in diameters. The 5/32" is the
more popular wheel for stained glass work as less hand pressure is
required to make a proper score and the smaller diameter wheel
follows your pattern line easier.
the #4 wheel for all of your general cutting. Use the
#1 wheel on really hard surfaced glass (like some opals or
seleniums). For best results in stained glass work, use the 5/32"
wheel diameter The 7/32" size is best for plate glass
operations where most cuts are long and straight.
These are really the best cutters anywhere.

NOTES ABOUT MacINNES CUTTERS
exceedingly hard, is also exceedingly brittle and can chip if
brought into contact with other metal objects. NEVER toss
your MacInnes Cutter into your tool box with the rest of your
pliers and stuff. Always keep it in the plastic pouch it
wheels are packaged in little plastic bags that have the size
and angle marked on it. When swapping wheels, be sure to
put the wheel in the right bag as it is tough to tell the
wheel angle without specialized measuring devices.
When using your
MacInnes Cutter for the first time, remember to go LIGHT with
the pressure. The exceptionally sharp and clean cutting
wheel needs less pressure to get an effective score than the
cutter you are using now.
NO CUTTER OIL IS
REQUIRED. You won't hurt things by using it dry (and some people
prefer using their MacInnes Cutters with oil), but all
MacInnes components are made to be used dry, so why make
a mess? MacInnes products are made for industrial uses
where oil residue would be a big problem, so all cutters have
been designed to give a good, clean score without messy
oil. A big plus for fusers.
