Got my hands on a new plug cutter for cheap not sure who makes it it looks like the innovative one. It's very jumpy and breaks the plug and grabs the plug it actually took chunks out of the ball because it caught the plug. And it was zeroed out

Doesn't sound like a genuine Innovative cutter; those cut very quick and clean when they are new.

I've used it on a couple of different presses with different jigs and all the same results. My buddy told me it may just be to sharp Idk how that could be though.

for this reason I never bought a "plug cutter".
I shave the plug with a router, and I've been doing that for 30+ years ! ;)

I used to use a router until the cutting blade in the router dropped and shaved the top surface off the ball. The ball was destroyed and I had to replace the ball for the customer. I would never use a router again.

Had the same problem with a new innovative plug cutter recently ... maybe they had a bad production run. We use them historically & never had an issue. Have to cut real slow with light pressure or it will grab. Went back to old innovative plug cutter ... worn, but better than current alternative. Maybe "ballspinner" can address if there has been like feedback?
