DIY Way of cutting PEX

26356 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  joecaption
I don't have a special PEX cutting but need to make two cuts. Is there a good way to make a nice square cut on this stuff? I'll be using sharkbite fittings, so I'm assuming the ends need to be as square as possible.

About the easyest way by hand would be with a razer utility knife.
Buy a tubing cutter.
I've got one of these. Will this work? I'm making a pex repair in a wall so space is limited. I just want to make sure to get a square cut

Put a hose clamp on it as a guide and cut it with a utiity knife with a new blade. No thats a close quarters copper cutter. It aint rocket science. I like to chamfer the outer edge just a taste with emory when I use shark bites. Makes the O ring slide nicely. Oh and spit on it before you shove it home.
