I seen this video last night and could not believe what I was seeing. never seen a person take a neway cutter and spin it to the moon on a seat with a drill and socket. to me that would be way to much material taken off. not sure about his other ethics too and this guy has people paying him to build there heads?
like is comment " going to cut this lite and quick"
I use the factory T handle and spin it just a few times by hand and it's done cutting. cutting teeth on my neway are very aggressive.

Holy cow..
I have a Neway cutter kit and those are in no way meant to be used with a drill.. They remove a LOT of material very quick by hand..
That head looks ruined to me...
I also didn't know it is required to "spit" into the guides to clean them after running a pipe cleaner through them..WOW.. :eek::eek:

Here is a beautiful video by Neway on cutting Briggs FH Seats. FYI, Neway does sell a power head so you don't have to use the T handle. Speed? 50 RPM for Briggs. See 12:38 for that.

power head would be nice if you where doing jobbers.....

I believe it's 30 rpm's on small engines. I remember watching that video before purchasing my neway cutter. it's a good video to watch.
I think when they where showing you cutting the seat in that briggs with the power tool it was more for demonstration use only. unless they where cutting into a new seat? it may take little more. that would depend on if the seat was square or has a pre-cut angle in the seat . more then likely it was for demonstration use only.

Neway makes different insert types with different cutting faces. It looked like maybe he was using correction cutters for moving material. It is still misuse of the tool even ignoring the high speed drill.

I don't like the square-bottomed chamber cut around the valve seats either. And that porosity....yeesh!

man I really hope none of you guys are sending your heads off to this guy on you tube. I just happen to catch one of his latest video's and right around 45 seconds into the video he talks about belt sanding the head......:eek: really...….belt sandingo_O and then he post on is video it's always good ideal to get your head milled before installation. first of all the only way to take material off would be with a mill or on a lathe. unbelievable he has people sending stuff to him.

There are a lot of red flags in his videos if you look closely. He's obviously an amateur builder doing amateur work for people who can't do it for themselves. He admittedly doesn't even have a proper straight edge, which is probably convenient because then he might see how wavy his belt sander head "milling" is.

Funniest thing I've seen all day since none of those parts are mine.
Gomer Pyle must have helped him with the pathetic video.
I let a little spit fall into my gastank to check the level one time
but hadn't thought of lubing a valve train with it.
