Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garageman Perfect for the job
Bought this to get a clean cut on heavy duty closet rods and I was concerned it might not be up to the job. As soon as I started, it was obvious that this was a good tubing cutter. Just needs a little patience and it works like a champ.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thebutlerdidit It worked
A bear had pushed over my feeder pole which was galvanized with a diameter of 1 and 1/4 or 1 and 3/8 inches. It was in concrete that was underground so, rather than try to dig out the whole thing, I cut it off below grade with this. It worked even though the pole had a bit of a bend in it. My 'back' says this was 20 bucks well spent even if I never use it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mamajane1234 Cuts with ease
I like this tube cutter. The design is heavy duty with a nice screw handle. It cuts a 2 ⅛” pipe with ease. Cutter blade works well. It is easy to hold and turn around the pipe. I am also successful holding the cutter and turning the pipe. The red quick release button and the pop out metal reamer blade add a level of convenience. The quick release allows you to immediately slide the hold assembly portion of the cutter away from the pipe being cut. Also rather than having to screw the hold assembly all the way in, you can slide it along the track until snug, then tighten with screw assembly. The reamer enables you to smooth the inside of the pipe to dull sharp spots and remove burrs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricG Makes clean cuts every time
I have a small tubing cutter and I like how it makes a clean cut, but the capacity is only about one inch. In the past I have used my power hacksaw to cut larger diameter tubing. It does make a square cut, but the edge of the tube is left rough on the inside and outside so I have to clean it up with a file and reamer.
This cutter does an excellent job of cutting tubing. The cut is square and the only imperfection is a burr on the inside, but this cutter includes a reamer which makes quick work of cleaning the cut.
Recently I made a router compass to cut the ribs for an observatory dome. I needed to cut diameters up to 15 feet, so I made a set of different length tubes for the different curve radii, and this cutter did the job in minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by frljo1 one the best that i operate with
this is the one off the best pipe cutter that i worked with i cut M type (commercial) copper pipe without big effort whatsoever.
the quick release/adjust is just a bonus on the tool I'm a maintenance guy dealing with everything if this cutter wore before on the shelf I would buy it in a heartbeat.
in the handle there is extra cutting while also a bonus, if you are a plumber or electrician do not hesitate it will speed up your installation for more than 30%

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WestSkyGuy Easy to use, left a clean cut
Purchased this item to cut away old aluminum piping that had to be replaced. The piping ranged from a diameter of 1.25" to just under 2". The tool cut the piping with a minimum of effort, leaving clean cuts and only needed a minor amount of filing down. Very happy with the tool. Don't have a huge need for pipe cutting, normally, but this will stay in the tool box for whenever I need it again.

The Quick release tube cutter does well from 2 inch down to 1/2 cooper tube. It makes a nice clean square cut. I didn't notice any walking cutting several diameter pipe. Cutting larger pipe it's a little harder to cut short pieces from short stock as holding the pipe is harder . Using a clamp,or vise it works great. Making the cuts Worked out nice, the deburring blade works but not great it need more cleaning with a hand deburring tool or sand paper. The outside of the cut is clean so slipping into unions is nice with little cleaning. The quick release works but can get temperamental if you don't position your finger correctly you also need to be sure you don't have any pressure on the pressure knob or it won't release while pushing to the pipe. For clamping down on the pipe the quick release is fast, just push on the knob. On the pipes I tried 1/2 3/4 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 clamping down with the quick method gets you close to the pipe but not enough to be able to release the pipe and twist the knob to make cutting contact. A little fumbling but no big deal . All in all a good tool for large and small pipe, good price point . It's built sturdy , good feel and a little on the heave side.
