A: Hi GateDoctor! Our Milwaukee 3/4 in. Close Quarters Tubing Cutter is designed and suggested for use on copper, brass, aluminum and thin-wall conduit
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.
A: 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.
A: According to Milwaukee Website it is made in China.
A: 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.
A: There is an arrow on the side showing you the correct direction depending on the way you place it on the pipe. Looking at the picture above you would rotate them clockwise.
A: I don't have them in front of me but if you look at the picture there is a black arrow that shows the direction of the cut on each tubing cutter.
A: you turn it either direction, the cutter whell is spring loaded.
A: It is self tightening just follow the arrow
