Answer: 
Rigid states "accommodates piping with diameters measuring 3/16" - 15/16" in diameter."
Rigid make 3 models of the little tool--101,104, and 105. Check out the specs to see which will do the job you have at hand.

Answer: 
This Ridgid 104 cuts hard and soft copper, aluminum, brass and plastic tubing with diameters measuring 3/16 in. up to 15/16 in. In other words up to 3/4 in. diameter pipe. If you need to cut 1 in. copper pipe I recommend using the Ridgid 101 tubing cutter, it makes great one time cuts in tight spaces.

Answer: 
No. This RIDGID 104 will not cut brushed nickel pipe. This RIDGID 104 cuts hard and soft copper, aluminum, brass and plastic tubing. I use the RIDGID Adjustable Heavy-Duty Pipe Cutter model # 32820 to cut brushed nickel pipe, it can also cut steel pipe from 1/8 - 2 in. in diameter, which is galvanized pipe.

Answer: 
It might. It is usually used for thicker walled piping, but if you keep the pressure to a minimum, you might be able to pull it off.

Answer: 
This tool is designed to cut copper. Brushed nickel curtain rods are not likely to be made of copper so it would not be recommended to try. A standard screw feed pipe cutter with a blade for steel pipe is recommended.

Answer: 
Yes, but I recommend buying a cutter wheel made exclusively for cutting PVC pipe. It is a little bit bigger than the copper cutter wheel, but it cuts like a dream, much faster cut with the bigger wheel cutter. Keep in mind that this bigger wheel cutter is not made for cutting copper pipe so remember to put the smaller wheel back in the Ridgid 104 tubing cutter.

Answer: 
Hi SGDIY<
A tubing cutter will not cut deep enough to cut PVC, as the wall thickness is greater then copper, aluminum or brass pipe.
A PVC cutter is much cheaper to buy and much more effective.
Mike,

Answer: 
Very little this is the smallest cutting tool I have seen. My pipe was almost against the wall, and I was able to work the tool and shift the pipe to get the required space.
I can't provide exact measurements but the only way to cut si you can't use this is with a saw and your will have issues sweating new pipe to it.
Good Luck with your project..

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 75 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bigger is not always better I had an old tubing cutter that had become useless so I got this Rigid tool. It worked like a charm to cut the 3/8" tbuing I had. It worked within the small space I had to work in and was failry clean and easy to use. The only drawback I had was that it did not have a flarign tip to clean off the edges when I got thru, but I added it to my tool collection just the same. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use in tight spaces great tool Simple to use and a MUST HAVE if working in tight spaces. Great quality tool cuts cleanly smooth operation. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little cutter for the price This cutter works very well cutting copper tubing. It is small enough to get into tight spaces where a larger one would not fit. I recently used this to cut at least 12 cuts in copper piping from 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch in dia. without any problems. Keep in mind that this cutter is not a professional tool, and is probably designed for small jobs. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Right tool for the job Effective for accessing and removing a split section of an existing copper water line. The routing between joists made access with large pipe cutter impossible so the smaller tubing cutter was perfect for the job. May 10, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Little Cutter This is just the tool for those hard to get to places. This is sharp and took very little time to cut a water line that was leaking. Its Made tough and built to last. Fits anywhere not like the big bulky ones. Good for little jobs. I love it. March 30, 2016
