Questions & Answers


This new cutter leaves a small but noticeable lip at the end of the outside edge of each side of ...

Asked by lifeisadimension December 12, 2020

I have not had that problem. Sharkbite can be finicky sometimes so I would return for replacement.

Can it cut a 1/4 inch pipe?

Asked by MDB October 7, 2020

Should work, I would hold the pipe firmly though..

I'm not used to DIY and want to cut a 1/2 inch PVC pipe. Will this be easy and safe to use for a ...

Asked by Sheila September 9, 2020

Not for PVC

dumb question, but can I cut 1/2 copper pipe with this?

Asked by martij January 2, 2020

No way.

Could I cut schedule 40 3/4" PVC pipe cleanly with this?

Asked by Labeery January 24, 2019

Yes but you must be careful how you use it. I will be using a SharkBite on the end of my pipe. Cut must be bur free and at 90 degrees. Don't plan on using this for a big project but if using it to do some DIY project its a good deal. I have only one use for it today. It is also small enough I can get it back behind things to cut existing pipe.

is this cutter ratcheting?

Asked by bill September 26, 2017

No, it isn’t. I turned the pipe slowly and tried to keep it straight while cutting. It’s very sharp and cuts through easily.

Pipe Cutter
This pipe cutter is for PEX pipe ONLY! I'm just assuming that all the bad reviews of this product are the same results of why I ended up with it. hopefully this review will save people from the same trouble as me as the product only specifies in 1 tiny place that it is for PEX pipe.
Great product
i installed a sink in my backyard using pen pipe. The cutter worked great.

Fantastic and easy to use. Using these made me feel more confident about my cuts. These cutters do make it easier because they have a thick ledge to hold the pex flat while you make the cut. Very handy and big time saver. I made my own manifold behind the hot water heater with these cutters.

Cheap Tool Results - steer clear
Cant seem to cut 1/2in pex straight. Returing product to get a ratcheting style or other. I would steer away from this tool. Im a DIYer and perfectionist and going from copper to pex is a dream but this tool is a headache.
