Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by capnbobby Great tool for the DIY'er
I have a 70 year old tubing cutter which still does a good job even with the original blade. This Husky Quick Release 1-1/8 Tubing cutter does a great job and is far superior to my old one. The quick release feature is outstanding. The cutter is going through my one inch copper pipe like butter. Having a new spare blade in the handle is a great feature. I doubt that I would ever need a new blade. A good buy for the DIY and Professional alike!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Racer QUICK RELEASE 1-1/8 IN. TUBE CUTTER
Replaced a well pump, and bladder tank. Got rid of a bunch of old galvanized pipe.
Replaced and rerouted pipe with 3/4 and 1/2 copper. Had to cut a lot of pipe. It was worth every penny I spent for it.

Going from a tiny, no name pipe cutter, to this piece of machinery is a big step. My old pipe cutter would take about 3-5 min to cut a 1/2" copper pipe. This cutter took me 15 seconds to cut a 1/2" copper pipe. That is a vast improvement. The quick release is great and the tightening dial is large and easy to turn. You can cut up to 1-1/8" tubing, including copper and pvc. This is a great tool to have in your plumbing repertoire and I would recommend to plumbers and the DIYer alike.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JamesC Nice cutter for metal tubing. Includes extra blade and deburring tool. All metal construction.
This is a nice cutter for metal tubing, with some good features. The first thing to note is that no instructions are included with this tool, perhaps because the use and operation is somewhat obvious, so they aren’t really necessary. What wasn’t obvious to me however, was the location of the extra blade, which I eventually discovered inside the knob. If you are cutting a lot of pipe, especially of varying diameter, you’ll appreciate the quick release functionality of this cutter, which is operated by depressing the red button on the side of the tool forward in a downward diagonal direction while simultaneously sliding the blade into the desired position. When the blade reaches the desired position, release the red button to lock it into place. Out of the package, the red button on my tool was very difficult to operate, so I loosened the small Phillips head screw atop the button about a half a turn to make it operate more smoothly and with significantly less effort. To cut pipe, you tighten down the blade and spin the tool around the pipe, giving the knob a quarter turn at each full rotation until the pipe is cut through. A fold-out reamer on the backside of the tool removes burrs for a cleaner cut. To access the extra blade stored inside the tool, pull up on the red cap at the base of the knob to remove it and, using a Phillips head screwdriver, remove the Phillips head screw to release the blade. Note that this screw serves double duty and also attaches the knob to the end of the threaded rod. The tool will handle pipe from 1/8-in. to 1-1/8-in. in diameter. As with all Husky hand tools, this cutter carries a lifetime replacement warranty. These tools have not changed much over the years, which is evidenced by a side-by-side comparison of this tube cutter and a vintage model that belonged to my grandfather. This is a useful tool that takes up very little space in my toolbox.
