Default Circle Scissor

I have the old EK Success green/purple circle scissor. I think it works just fine, but I was wondering if there is a reference somewhere to what size circle to which number on the circle scissor. For example, say I want to cut a 1-3/8" circle, which number on the circle scissor corresponds to that? Does such a guide exist? I couldn't find one when I googled it.
Thanks in advance for any help!

I bought one of these several months ago and asked the same question. No one had an answer (not a biggie...just sayin').

I decided to email EK Success and I never got a response from them either. I thought that was very strange!

And I haven't just sat down to draw the circles and then measure...

Yeah, I was hoping there was something already done. lol. Maybe I could make that a "project" and post my results when I'm done. Maybe I'll have time to get to that this weekend, unless one already exists and someone can point us to it!

Subscribing to this thread...

I would love to have a list like that as well. If you wanted, we could maybe split up the task? Of course if you want to do it all, that's cool, too!

I have the Circle Scissor too. Never thought about specific sizes. But I suppose you could use a pencil instead of the knife to draw a bunch of circles. Then measure with a ruler and draw a few more until you figure out which are the "standard" sizes... like 1 inch, 1.5, 2 inch, 2.5, et cetera
If it were me, I certainly would not want to measure every one of the incremental sizes available. Whew! It would take forever!

The numbers on the holes tells how big it is in mm. So the circles range in size from 25 to 150 mm. If you have a ruler that also has metric on it you can compare with the inches

I had a lot of time on my hands one night and took on this project- I took a piece of poster board and cut it down to 11 x 11. Then I punched circles with what few scallop and circle punches I have, then I took a pencil and did what GarnetJ suggested, except I put the slot number instead of the size increment. I guessed trial and error about the sizes on paper first until I found sizes that co-ordinated with my punches. When I found one that worked, I traced it onto the poster board and labeled its number in the center of the circle. I also cut out some nesting circles and labeled them as well and put them all into a large ziplock bag with my cutter and knife so it's all together. This way when I need two different sizes, I can pull out one of the punch outs, and lay it on top my examples on the poster board and know which size matches! I had already done that same thing everyone else had...to no avail! Right now this is working for me. Hope this helps.

Pam

Ah Ha! What wonderful information.

Now, Just go here... Metric Conversion Type any amount in the inches box and it will change all the other boxes into it's equivalent. The millimeters box will match the numbers on the Circle Scissors.

Here's a trick that I did with my circle scissor. I used a thin tip sharpie pen and traced each circle onto a piece of acetate. I then wrote the size in mm with a line pointing to the corresponding circle. {I know, very tedious and time consuming. But I also use this for scrapbooking.} Well, since the circles are now see through I can put them on top of my project and find the perfect circle. Plus choose a matting size, however thick or thin I want. I know it's not a big deal, but so far it has saved me some money so now I can spend it on stamps.

Default Circle cutter slot sizes

I emailed EK Success about not knowing the dimensions of the circles. I was able to make up this spreadsheet to show the the slot number which is in mm and the corresponding inches of the circle that it will make. I hope I can attach this spreadsheet correctly. I printed and laminated a copy to keep with my circle cutter. Hope this helps you as well.

You can try this mm to inches converter
