    Yes, this will work for trimming barrels. Yes it works on multiple sized kits. It may not however make your life easier.

    The problem with this is that it suffers from severe chatter leaving you with high and low spots that you then need to deal with. I've been grabbing a nice big flat file and I'll file it down till it's mostly flat, then if it's acrylic I'll use my buffer to get the last of it out.

    Similar reviews on the manufacturer's page got responses from their technical support that this cutter is only designed to run at *low* RPM, below 500. I never was able to get a clean cut with a handheld drill, but now that my drill press has come in I need to reconfigure it for those slow speeds and try again.
