practice is to cut your filter open at each and every oil change. This is
"the" easiest way to immediately determine the health of your engine. Every
A&P practices this ritual. No one wants to find metal in their oil filter,
but it is far better to find out on the ground, than in the air.
The Airwolf AFC-470-1 oil filter cutter is constructed out of a solid billet of 6061T6
aluminum. Then we apply a thick layer of black hard coat anodizing to resist
scratches and wear.
Specially designed razor sharp cutter wheel, hardened to 60 Rockwell, will slice the
filter can open effortlessly. Cutter wheel is replaceable, but we doubt you
will need one. Embry Riddle University just purchased their first
replacement cutter wheel for an Airwolf Filter Cutter they have been using
now for 3 years, cutting an average of 100 filters a month open. That's how
tough our cutter wheel is.
The Airwolf oil filter cutter will weather the toughest of mechanic's operation. And, it is
so easy to use, you can open up several filters in the same time as it takes
to open one with the expensive Champion CT-470 cutter. Not only does our
cutter save you time, but you can get it for a fraction of the $200 Champion
price. And, it is far better than the flimsy $49 cutters you might be
tempted to buy.
Textron Lycoming in the recent Service Instruction SI-1492B, specifically recommends
the use of the Airwolf AFC-470-1 cutter as a preferred method of opening up
the oil filter to check for premature piston pin plug wear. If Lycoming is
recommending it, you know it has to be good.

NOTE TO ALL OWNERS OF THE ORIGINAL AFC-470
OIL FILTER CUTTERS
When the major filter manufactures changed their oil filters to
their new -1 filters a few years ago, they changed the thickness of the bottom
of their filters can which can cause reduced life and or breaking of our cutter
wheel. While we are not pleased that the filter manufactures made this
change, we had no choice but to come up with a solution for the thousands of
cutters already out in the field.
We now offer an upgrade kit to convert our original AFC-470
cutters to the new AFC-470-1 style. This upgrade kit is $49.99. It comes
with everything needed for the upgrade. It will take about 30 minutes of your
time to install the new parts and once done, no more cutter wheel breakage. The
P/N is AFC-470-UPGRADE.
