I was reading a post about cake levelers because I was suffering from agbay envy. I even saw one on Craig's List. The bid was $30. Then checked again and way over $100.
Someone added to the post that you could get a saw blade at the hardware store and put it in the place of the blade on the Wilton large cake leveler, which I already owned. So, hubby fixes it up.
From wimpy, wimpy, wimpy to hefty, hefty, hefty! It works GREAT!
So, whoever posted that idea-Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
really? is it food safe? I love that idea.
thanks sooo much that is a great idea going to the hardware store in the am.
Oh sure, after I get my spiffy new Agbay, THEN I hear this tip!
Hey bob, you can always have a spare leveler. LOL
Do you use a a real fine saw blade or one with bigger "teeth"? Sounds like a great idea!
Wow! amazing tip.
OMG thanks for posting this b/c I never read the original post !!! You just saved me $$$
Thanks to you both !
Bob-it works great like my Acura car works great, but it is not a BMW!
My husband, knower of all tools, picked up the blade so I can not tell you which one it is. It does have deeper teeth, but it does not tear the cake. When he replaced the blade and he used molly bolts to hold it in.
I am still hoping that someone claims the original idea so I can pm a personal thank you.
Hmmm... i'm with Bob on this one. That information would've been REALLY cool to know before I spent a fortune on the AgBay and my Wilton leveler had a little 'accident' with a hammer. Hahaha!! But if I ever need a back up, at least I know that NOW, right? Thanks OP for sharing that info, and I hope you get to send your thanks to the right person! I know when you get a gem bit of info like that, you really want someone to know how much they helped you!!

Isn't it funny how those things happen? I guess I'm just a little too 'clumsy'. Yah, Clumsy. That's it.
Would you post a photo of your transformed wilton leveler? TIA
great idea! I too would love to see an after pic!
I remember seeing a thread like that. I thought I saved it but can't find it. I also remember that the poster had affixed wider acrylic feet to the bottom for stability. Someone had also mentioned that they used a cutting board they found at the dollar store - cut out feet to the size they wanted and attached them.
Thank you for finding that. I looked and looked but didn't come up with the thread.
I will keep my day job and not give it up to become a detective! LOL
I don't know how to post a pic yet, but I will ask my friend and learn how to do it.
