EMT Connections - Problems pulling

I bought that Greenlee cutter, I did not like it. It did not cut deep enough into the conduit. I replaced with Ridgid tubing cutter. Every cut I have seen with a saw left a real jagged edge. Cutting part way through and then snapping is what I have done for several years.

They should discontinue 1/2 " conduit.

Why? When your running conduit from outlet to outlet you only need 3 12 gauge wires, 1/2" is more than enough for that! There are many applications where 1/2" is all that is needed and going to 3/4" would be just way to excessive.

What? While I run 3/4" most of the time in commercial, 1/2" almost entirely in residential.
Are you saying they should do away with 14/2 also?
You can get quite a few conductors in 1/2"
