TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS
DRILL MOUNTED NIBBLER
Is it the sports car of nibblers? Maybe… It’s light. It’s compact. And where other cutting tools cut straight lines or curved lines, the Bad Dog Biter can cut drag-race straight and make track-worth turns with ease. Plus, there are no cords or hoses to get in the way. What you get is a sleek cutting machine that will cut circles around anything else out there. Using PATENTED technology, powered by your hand drill and a pair of patented cutting heads, the Bad Dog Bite Drill Mounted Sheet Material Cutter makes it easy to cut sheet material up to 1/8″ thick. Like one Bad Dog Biter user said, “These puppies cut circles around other nibblers”. We couldn’t have put it better.

The Original Biter comes with a 2″ cutting head which is perfect for every-day cutting like trimming flashing, removing rusted sheet metal from a fender, fitting laminate, or cutting sheet plastic. For those cuts that are just out of reach, pop on the Long Dog Head. A full 4″ long, the Long Dog makes access easy to hard-to-reach places such as inside a fender to install marker lights, awkward angles on the dash to install gauges or retrofitting ductwork hidden inside a ceiling. The Long Dog features the same 360° turning radius as the original Bad Dog Biter head.

PAWS for some Important Information:
Non-Ferrous metals contain no iron. Some of these materials are among the most easily mined and figured prominently in ancient history. Though Non-Ferrous metals are much softer than ferrous metal, the can also present their own difficulties to the crafts person. In certain circumstances, heat built up by the cutting tool can actually melt the metal, which in turn, gunks up the blade, rendering it useless. Whether cutting or drilling Non-Ferrous metal, Bad Dog always recommends using a lubricant like Bad Dog Drool.

Zenith Design used the Bad Dog Biter to create these beautiful wall sconces. The lights are 24oz copper sheet and laminated paper inserts. The Biter allowed them to quickly and easily remove the waste from the center panels. After removal, the pieces were templated routed to a final shape with a variable speed router set as low as possible and lubed with Bad Dog Drool.

THE BITER LEASH
The Biter Leash trains your Bad Dog Biter to CUT A STRAIGHT LINE or TURN ON A DIME!
ASSEMBLING THE LEASH
Install the threaded head onto your Bad Dog Biter
Place the holder over the threaded head
Tighten the large nut so the head cannot move
Place the pivot point on the leash
Using the set screw, set the leash to the proper width
Tighten the nut under the set screw
The notched side of the holder must be situated opposite to the cutting opening on the threaded head for the head to set properly
TURNING ON A DIME
- Make a small divot to anchor the pivot point
- Set pivot point to the desired radius along the leash from 1″ to 6″ (this gives you the ability to cut perfect circles with diameters of 2″ to 12″)
CUT A STRAIGHT LINE
- Adjust the pivot along the leash to access the straight edge you will use as your guide
- Tighten the set screw and adjacent washer
- Run the pivot along the straight edge
The Versa-Clamp takes your hand drill out of your hands, turning it into a powerful driver for a host of useful tools. Pair the Versa-Clamp with the Bad Dog Biter or Handi Disc Flexible Abrasive Wheel (both sold separately). Also compatible with drill mounted apparatus like grinding stones, wire wheels, flappers discs, or sanding discs. NOT for use with tools that require guards or shields.
