    they make a little can opener thing to cut into oil filters cleetus has one

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Kennedy says:

    The next day: The side-cutting can opener is created

    Eeeeeewweww!

    Now that's a can of 'Woop ass'!

    not much point in opening it up, as we all saw what it was bypassing, had to have as the engine would have gotten so worn it'd have been shot to the breeze. Haa

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim D says:

    Use a oil filter 'socket' (wrench) on the scalloped end of the filter to keep it from turning. Also, compare the filter elements between the two. Project Farm did a YouTube video on various oil filter brands.

    When that tool truck comes around you must be like a kid going to an ice-cream truck.

    Good work, Ray. It was a good demonstration of the importance of routine maintenance. The word maintenance still carries meaning. . .

    great video.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Gray says:

    This was like a hockey game going into overtime this at 0-0. The filter canister almost won !!!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JOSEPH HILBERT says:

    why not put that filter cap tool for a ratchet wrench in the vise to hold the oil filter

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chevy Bull says:

    You'll get along better with a Tupperware can opener

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GROG SMASH says:

    Adding the normal used filter as a "control" was very edifying , thank you for the extra effort.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sniperlif3 says:

    Rubber spacer on the clamp will help you with this process. Less clamping force, also, think about using the gripping clamps that don't smash the filter (circular ones that tighten with tension). Still super helpful to see what filters do and what bad looks like. Good on your team (and you, of course) at trying to reach out for preventative maintenance.

    Hey Ray, next time you grease your air tools, show a little love to your bench vice!

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars terry jones says:

    Hacksaw………..just saying

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen says:

    I like intellectual curiosity…So much "useless information" turns out to be useful somewhere down the road. I'm betting he lost his engine by not dropping the pan.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bowhunters says:

    Hacksaw on an oil filter is a lot easier and will cut the thin tin like butter.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MarzNet256 says:

    It's like a pipe cutter on steroids.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Super Fren says:

    Put a cup type oil filter socket in your vise next time to hold the filter while you cut.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Naylor says:

    Ahhhh, can’t spell vice fingers to big.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Naylor says:

    Squeaky Viv Ray needs lubricant desperately 😖

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Meade says:

    I was wondering why you didn't use a hacksaw to cut open the filter, then you figured out how best to use the tool on the second filter. Excellent video Ray!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Mullendore says:

    Sawzall works every time

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Hayward says:

    Hey Ray
    This is what I would call a pipe cutter – for ceramic pipes.

    You do as you did. But the application of the 'locking' arm causes even and multiple fractures around the circumference of the ceramic pipe and making a reasonable clean cut.
    It isn't for opening thin metal containers such as oil filters.
    Which explains why you struggled somewhat.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CCdude says:

    Ray a couple of things, is this a Napa oil filter commercial? takes a beating keeps on working—– Please buy a dremel with a cut off wheel–you'll never go back…..

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hexatope says:

    also idea for you; next time instead of putting it in a vice, get one of those ratchet cups that fits the filter, apply light pressure to the handle on the cutter and just use an impact drill to spin the filter til it cuts through.

    Oil? I would say it's chocolate sauce.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don W says:

    Another great video Ray. A good way to compare different filter brands for a given rig is laying the paper element out and compare overall length. I saw a filter comparison done on a PSD and it was amazing…all new filters but their build quality and quality of design and materials varied GREATLY!! I hadnt had a problem with using Fram…until I saw this comparison.
    I would have loved to see the filter on the Toyota as I recall with the spun bearing that you saved..that pan was scary bad with metal! Also the filter on the locked up Toyota you bought from the customer who had it towed in.
    Keep up the great work!!!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich Reid says:

    That sure was easy!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars W A says:

    Filter doing its job 😊

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Hargis says:

    I'm guessing a muffler will put up a better fight then that filter did. You wasted your money on that.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tracy Owen says:

    What do mechanics do when they're bored you just witnessed it

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris 889 says:

    Would a 1mm cutting disc been easier to cut open the filter ? 🤔
