Anyone ever fly cut before?

I need to fly cut my pistons and I do not have the tools to do it, and I have never done it before. I prefer not to do things like this for the first time without experienced guidance.

Anyone have the tools/know-how/spare time?

I have the tools for fly-cutting but they were made in the LS3 valve sizes since I did my top end. I can dig them up if you're interested. I got mine from Lindy Tools, supposedly the best company for them. Mine have the optional stopper also, makes it super easy, just set the depth for cutting and it'll stop after you reach it.

My intake cutter was used for the 8 cylinders once, exhaust cutter was never touched.

I've seen most use the Lindy tool as stated above. Not sure but you might want to PM AVAS about it.

That's actually perfect since I have LS3 heads.
