China if I’m not mistaken. I do my best to buy American made but the quality and durability of these cutters have far outlasted the competition.

There is a black arrow on the cutters, push the cutters on the copper until the cutting wheel clicks in place then spin the cutters in the direction of the arrow.

I don't believe it would. I don't think there is enough play in the spring loaded cutting wheel to get that small but I have not tried.

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.

Use them to repair 1/2” and 3/4” copper pipe in the wall where a traditional pipe cutter didn’t have enough room to function. They worked great!
