using rotary tool to cut the 3" toilet drain pipe?


I am in the process of installing the toilet drain boot... now the book said cut the drain pipe 3/4" below ground , cut from inside or using some thing called "inside pipe cutter"....

now can I use my $50 rotery set with cutting wheel to do this...experimented that last night, got some success but end up the wheel broke and a small piece fall inside the pipe, hope it won't get blocking the stuff... should I buy some more solid wheel to try again? or there is a better/easier way?

This is what your looking for.

Put towel in line to keep things from falling down in pipes.

I saw that at HD, but I read you mail too late, I got some solid black disc which said can be used to cut plastic instead... which seems able to cut the pipe as well, except I need to sand a little bit as some plastic melt ....

thanks for the tips about towel...
