Customer Questions & Answers

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.

In the hospitals I have worked in when you have 7 or 8 medical gas lines coming in each room with 3 inch spreads, it sure beats using an imp cutter. The wheels and cutting wheel is spring loaded so if you push the tool on the pipe to far it will: not cut and just spin, bounce around, or JAM like some of the users have experienced. People need to learn how to use the tool before casting judgment.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart investment Works great on copper pipe. It's a bit bulky and hard to align sometimes. But it's a really good tool to have overall, very happy with it.
