    Yep, have one. Haven’t used it for awhile, but it works great doing the radius cuts

    I actually won one at the Street Rod Nationals in Springfield Missouri 3 years ago and was surprised how good it worked. It cuts a pretty tight radius and a nice clean line.

    I’ve had one for years, it’s air operated. I had to buy it back when I doing body work for a living. I had a conversion van that I had to replace the whole drivers side panel, had to use it to cut the big window openings. The little half moon slivers that it cuts suck when they get stuck in your shoes then you go home and walk across the carpet. Then your wife steps on one bare footed.

    Yeah, that's very true. They stick to your shoes like bubble gum.

    We had one doing metal roof and pole barns. Ours was a whole tool, not just an attachment. It was pretty handy on thick stuff for radius but not very good for long straight cuts.
