PVC Cutting Tool


All these years I've cut my 1/2" and 3/4" PVC pipe with a hacksaw or sawzall.

Well....over the weekend I thought, what the heck....I'll try one of those hand held PVC cutters.

I sure wish I had bought it years ago. Makes it so much quicker and cleaner

Re: PVC Cutting Tool


My first one was a cheap one and after a few yrs it started cutting them crooked so I bought a better one which is still working good. Sure does beat a handsaw!

Re: PVC Cutting Tool


I'm with you Ddawg. I don't do a lot of plumbing so I never had the need for the fancy cutters. Then I had a bunch to do on a house I was remodeling. I bit the bullet and bought a pair. They are da bomb!

Re: PVC Cutting Tool


Buy good ones. I managed to bend the handle on a cheap one. I think some are made just barely stronger than the pipe they're designed to cut.

And believe it when they give the maximum diameter and schedule pipe it's good for. No, it won't cut the one just a teeny bit larger.

Re: PVC Cutting Tool


When my PVC cutter broke I replaced it with the Home Depot brand Husky ratcheting cutters selling at $14 and they are better than ones that have cost twice as much. Whoever the product manager is for Husky they are doing a very good job.

Re: PVC Cutting Tool


I had a good friend that totally remodeled his house. Stripped it to the 2by4’s. I redid the hvac, he asked if I would redo the plumbing (copper pipe). Since he was a friend I told him I would on the condition that he be my helper. He made good money but generally paid someone to do all his work. He agreed and over the course of a few weekends and a few beers and cook outs we got it done. The last day as we finished up he said “It sure was a pain sanding all those pipes and fittings. They ought to make a tool for that, instead of using this sandpaper” I told him they did and I reached in the top of my tool box and pulled one out. It has a few wire brush holes and a couple male brushes on the end just for that purpose. All the guys laughed when he asked “why didn’t you let me use it?” I said “you never asked lol”. Really I just wanted to get some physical work out of him. And bust his chops too. He smoked like a chimney and never did anything physical. He has passed now and I think of him often. Anyway I just wanted to point out it’s amazing what a little tool will do for you. Just like a pvc cutter. Just makes life easy

My replacement died about a month ago [blade broke] Since I remembered it having some sort of warranty I took it with me when I went to Lowes. They no longer sell that brand of cutters and didn't even have the part number in the computer. I was all set to buy a new one when they offered me another brand as a replacement [more expensive] free of charge. I left a happy camper!
