I actually have a pair of these as well which UMM gave to me in Orlando. I have used them and they do work very well.

I was just looking around this site and was thinking about buying this sprue cutter, after your excellent review Damon I've decided to get them.

Thanks for the review!

I purchased a very similar item from Micro-Mark a while ago, and have used nothing else since. It's a great little tool.

I too bought something similar from Micro Mark and it sure it's useful to cut those really small and fragile parts from the sprues.

The micro mark is the same thing but more expensive, believe it or not. UMM also makes a killer micro razor saw that should not be missed if you do any scratch building or conversions.
