Is this tool can cut emt electrical pipe

Asked by: Tman
This is a great tool for cutting copper, but I tried to cut electrical conduit, and, NO, it can't. It barely scratched the conduit. It probably dulled the cutting wheel tremendously, but I wanted to try. It will NOT work to cut electrical conduit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing. Got this kit for 80$. Cant beat that. Saves the wrist and time cutting pipe. And its waterproof so if im lazy instead of a mini cutter in tight spaces ill use this. Depending how much water is still in the line.
