        Q:Are these meant for soft copper tubing as well? ie, A/C refrigerant linesets

        Answer This Question

        A:  My guess would be they would work as long as the soft copper tubing has the same OD as rigid copper pipe since the cutter works based on those standard diameters and the tool locking on the pipe so the spring can force the cutting wheel to stay in contact with the copper as you turn it. The adjustable type would be a sure thing since you can vary the cutting wheel to achieve more diameters by adjusting the wheel with the knob. Plus you would only need one tool for most applications and the close quarters is typically not needed in those situations. Otherwise I am very happy with my set and use them quite regularly, but I am using them with standard plumbing copper pipe.

          Cutter is 6 months old. Used only a dozen times. Got wet cutting a water line 1 time and rollers rusted up and seized. The chrome finish flakes off the first time you use it. This tool isn’t worth the hefty price tag

            I bought this 3/4” copper pipe cutter because I couldn’t use my adjustable pipe cutter to cut a pipe really close to the stud and Sheetrock. It’s easy to use and convenient for this type of work when there’s no much room or space to handle the tools. It’s accurate and cuts really fast if use as directed (doing the rotation in the correct way). I noticed after cuts the pipes ended with a small bend where the wheel cuts started to cut or finish. There is no problem with that when try to assemble the sides but if not soldered right may tent to leak (is my opinion not saying that will).

            What a great set to have. You get the sizes you need but the close quarters is the best part.to me .These cutters can get into tight and small areas and make a nice clean cut with little effort. I needed to get in a shower where the cutter was actually touching on the back wall and still cut it. I couldn't get my regular tubing cutter even close and a hacksaw couldn't fit. This is my go to tubing cutter now.

            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.

            Great for hard to reach copper pipe
            I am restoring an old house, where someone stole the easy to reach copper pipe. The remaining copper is against something, or in the walls, where an adjustable tube cutter is hard to get in, or adjust. These work great. You still need about 3/4" clearance, but just slip it on, and turn in the direction of the arrow (clockwise). Nothing to tighten. The wheel tightens itself. On the downside ... the fact it tightens itself, makes it sometimes bind into the copper faster than I would like, making it harder to turn, in a spot I may be just using my finger tips to reach. I would rather make more rotations. Also, would be nice if the wheel dug in deeper, then I could use in on PEX too! The fact they are not adjustable, you have to buy one in each pipe size, but if you need more than one size, you are better off getting the set. For a little more than the price of two, you get a third and the case, with a spot for replacement blades.

            Super cutters. Fit in tight spots . The case is a nice touch to keep them from falling to the bottom of my tool bag.
