Asked by: FagomarCorp
Check with any construction supply house (Ferguson, Wayne Dennis, Johnstone Supply, White Cap, ACME Tool). Any decent supply house should have plenty of the cutting wheels in stock.

156-P Quick-Acting Tubing Cutter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tubing cutter has the others beat hands down The best feature I love about this cutter is the ability to adjust to any tubing size instantly without having to twist the knob. I also love having optional cutter wheel for different types of tubing. GREAT PRODUCT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool, don't waste your time with other brands I own lots of ridgid tools. When I find something I like, I buy a second one in case they delete the product line. My backup tool is still in the packaging eight years later. Cuts straight and fast. I decided to buy a lennox cutter to do stuff over 2 5/8, complete junk. Lennox sent me another one after the flimsy screw stripped. That one stripped too. Buy ridgid, buy once, and have it for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from its rigid it has to be good all my cutters ,pipe wrenchs are ridgid have some other rigid tools as well when you buy ridgid you know you are getting a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in the industry Rigid has the inside track when it comes to tubing cutters - period. They hold up for years and years and offer the best 'overall' pricing in the market - when you consider how long their tools last. Buy it once, and unless you lose it, you will never need another. The fast-acting tubing cutter is so much quicker than using a traditional style tubing cutter. This innovation speeds up tube cutting exponentially when changing sizes of copper pipe. Highly recommend. Awesome product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice improvements, could use a little more You cannot go wrong with the 151 tube cutter. The nice improvement of a larger handle helps out tremendously from fatigue and slippage when turning it to clamp tighter onto the tube.. Would like to see an actual deburring tool integrated onto the cutter. All in all a good, reliable tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick action makes it easy I use this product for work. When i need to make cuts for plumbing this product gives me the ease to do so. I can quickly adjust to different size pipe without having to grab another pair of cutters. The quick action makes it easy. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The quick action is very useful Very smooth cutting action, and requires little to no maint to continue to feel as good as the day I bought it. I only wish they made a smaller one to keep in my tool bag . Overall great tool
