    If you add compass kind of thingy to it, then it would be great to cut circles and arches too.

    Great idea! Thanks

    Interesting idea, what thickness of material will it manage?. Have valves might copy.

    Why does this video have a filter applied and why is it mirrored? Is it stolen?

    Interesting, like to know myself. Otherwise, valves excellent choice for slitting, ready made hollow ground cutting edge.
