Pizza Cutter
 
What Santa brought me this year, a nice bamboo cutting board, just what I wanted. And a surprise, a pizza cutter. Now I have a couple of the wheels, but this tool is excellent. Shame after advertising Taste of Italy, it had a very small sticker that said made in China. :rolleyes:

Oh well it was a gift and a superb tool. Cuts across in one rocking motion, never drags the topping and very easy to clean.

I have one too. Ours has a smaller diameter gripping area so we made some hardwood handles. The rocking motion makes short work of many pizzas.

Santa only brings things here for the grand kids, so you have to improvise and make it yourself.
I made my chimney transition made from stainless steel and an offcut from over the oven and front arch was ground and made into a rocking cutter. I machined a hardwood handle, mixed up some 2 pack epoxy glue, even coloured it ti match and slid the blade into it. Has been working fine for 3 years but you do need to be careful, especially washing and drying it as it will cut you without warning.
You will never use a roller cutter after experiencing one of these.

Cheers.

I use a rocker cutter too, in fact exactly like the one in the first post. I have also experimented around with making them and found you need to use 0.9 mm stainless. The first one I made was 0.55 mm and it was a bit too thin.

Thanks for the pics of your pizza cutter, I am on the hunt now for a piece of 316 SS to copy your design for a cutter of my own.

316 stainless is marine grade and not necessary, 304 is food grade and more adequate for such purposes and a little cheaper.
My cutter was made from a stainless ally, ie. not 304 nor 316 but slighly magnetic, an offcut from the stainless kit clubman that I built, 1.6mm thick. A bit like the stainless? fridge doors that you can hang magnets on!

Neill,

That looks like a fun car, what powers it? Edit... Just noticed your steering wheel is on the wrong side. And since it's your mother in law - you must make a LOT of hard right turns :-)
