Schedule 40 or 80?


Thanks for all the advice guys! I have all of the above tools -- which one produces the cleanest, squarest cut? I'm betting miter saw...am I right?

Schedule 40 or 80?


I have found that every single time i've cut pvc, be it with a hacksaw, mitersaw, or chewed thru it with my teeth, it always looks perfectly clean and square once it is shoved into a coupling or connector.

The miter saw will give the the cleanest, most square cut. Be sure to ream the inside cut edge with a file.
