1 in. Close Quarters Tubing Cutter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts well Different projects require different sizes and this kit fits my needs. The set includes 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, and 1 inch cutters and fits easily in my tool bag. I am in hardscaping and running water lines for outdoor sink and bar center is everyday work. So far I have cut quite a few copper tubes in tight spaces, the cutters performed well. I’d say about 3-4 turns and the copper breaks-off. I like the weep holes which do take most of the water out of the equation but I still recommend drying them completely before storing. End of the day, I use an air gun to thoroughly dry them. You don’t have to but I like it that way. Replacement blade is about 20% of the entire product price. I think it’s a bit high. I do however expect the blades to last some time. Storage case is sturdy, keep all the cutters in place so no time wasted looking for them. Milwaukee gives a limited life time warranty. I have run into some warranty issues with Milwaukee in the past. I would not count much on that since I found myself going in circles with them quite a few times. Given the quality and performance, I do recommend the kit to pros and DIYers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Use, Sharp, Cuts Clean These cutters are not only good for close-quarters cutting. They provide a clean-cut edge with minimal burring. They are simple to use and have a nice case for storing. The sizes for these cutters are Copper Tube Size, or CTS. The cutters will work on other tubing that is of CTS size provided it is not manufactured from materials much harder than copper tubing, such as chrome or stainless steel. I used mine on some aluminum alloy tubing. It worked great. I recommend these cutters for the A/C or plumber's toolbox.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have for plumbing emergency Milwaukee close quarters tubing cutter kit is a good tool kit to have in your tool bag when you cut a lot of copper tubing. The small round cutter fits easily into your hand when you have to reach into tight places. It has Chrome roller cutters that will not rust and weep holes that lets the water drain out for easy clean up. The wheel has directional directions that helps you make a faster cut and is easy to use. The kit comes with 1/2", 3/4", and 1" wheel cutters and a storage case. The case is made to store a deburring tool which does not come with the kit and is sold separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Close Quarter and fast Cutting Milwaukee Close Quarters Tubing Cutters are optimized for tough cuts in tight spaces is an understatement in my book. First day I have these I save an hour easily, not only did it slip right on the a 1/2 copper pipe, but with less than two full turns, the pipe was cut. It's takes more to turn a bottle cap then these, simply great. Compact, for the tightest spaces, replaceable blade, chrome rollers for rust protection and a weep holes allow water to drain from the tool. Includes 1/2 in., 3/4 in., and 1 in. cutters and a storage case. and a Limited lifetime warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee Tube Cutters Are The Best! Got this Milwaukee Tube Cutter Kit to do some much needed repairs & some re-plumbing around the house & property. First thing noticed is the quality of Milwaukee Tools & the custom hard case it comes in. Makes it easy to store & have them all together not loose in a tool box where I have to dig & look for them. Now as for performance they really do cut very well. Smooth & easy to maneuver & use. I only used the 3/4 & 1/2 inch cutters but both worked flawlessly. Also a nice feature is the replaceable cutters. Was glad for the acquirement of these tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plumber's best friend The close quarters tubing cutter set should be name "The Plumber's Best Friend" it has the three most used sizes (1/2", 3/4", and 1") that are used in residential plumbing. The tubing cutters' all come with extra cutting wheels (located in the handles) which gives you three extra wheels after wearing out the originals ones. The tubing cutters will get you with-in 1 1/2" of the wall, or studs where a full size cutter will not. Every plumber should have a set of these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Close-Quarters Cutters These cutters are great for when you need to cut a copper pipe in a tight spot. Unlike the style that has the tightening adjustment these are even more compact and don't require a pause every few turns to advance the cut. You just snap them on and twist them around the tubing until the cut is complete. These are a bit fiddly to line up and make a precise cut but it's certainly possible. The goal with these is usuaully just to achieve the cut. I'm not going to be giving up my regular tubing cutter any time soon. I liked the set overall but had a few criticisms. First, the cutters are a but tough to turn and the exterior ridges tend to cut into your hands. For one pipe, probably no big deal. If you had to do a few, though, you'd want to use gloves. Second, the set is fairly expensive because you're getting all three. I don't know about you but I rarely need a 1" cutter. I'd like to see a set of just the two smaller sizes for a discount off the individual price. And finally, I'd love to see a deburring whip be included in the set of three and have space for it in the case. Sure, those aren't problems, per se, with the product but certainly places it could improve.
