    Answer This Question

    A:  No, the picture says "For use in Copper". If you need to cut steel, you might be lucky to get a cut or two before it dulls.

            The Milwaukee 1/2" copper cutter is perfect for tight areas to cut copper piping. It's bright red for easy finding and placement. The chrome rollers are rust protected. The easy grip black knob is easy to adjust while cutting the pipe. Small, compact and can tackle a great amount cutting before having to replace the roller blade.

            These Are Great
            Some of the best things are some of the simplest. I have had many of these and they just work. Pants pocket, shirt pocket, tool pouch. They take up no room and weight almost nothing. Very easy to use very easy to clean. Replaceable blades. I've never had one of these break, I usually end up losing them or giving them away. This is a must have for anyone's toolbox that works with copper pipe.

            Tested Tough Tubing Cutter
            I am a fan of Milwaukee tool quality. This might be a little tight working in some walls when only needing to cut ½-inch copper tube. Despite advertised to cut copper tubing, I first tested it on copper tube and it cut as I expected. I then tested it on iron pipe and it cut fine with a couple drops of cutting oil. Followed by retesting on copper tubing again and it cut just as-well-as before cutting the iron pipe. The cutting wheel is easily replaced in the field by pushing out the retaining pin that the wheel rotates on. However, the cutting wheel should last a home owner a lifetime of doing routine home maintenance and repair work. And this mini tubing cutter would be a good purchase as the first tubing cutter a do-it-your-self person might buy for their tool box due to having the ability to cut up to 3/4-inch tubing. The most common of larger size copper tubing found in the home.

            Another Quality Milwaukee Tool
            I have been getting several Milwaukee tools over the past few years and this one stands up to the name as does the others. Quality components and finishes on all (including this tubing cutter) and well thought out designs. The components that stand out on this cutter is the adjustment knob and the chromed rollers. Both of the components make this cutter stand out above the rest

            Excellent cutting, stays sharp longer, great grip
            First and foremost, I can't say enough about the tightening knob. My biggest frustration with other cutters is a round knob which it difficult to keep turning. This knob is a cinch to grab and turn. A perfect 5 out of 5. Not only perfect in that category but everything I tried with this. Another big plus is the textured paint on the tool. Again, it makes it easier to grab especially considering having a sweating hand or flux on the fingers. This makes an intense improvement in grip. Cutting as well was very decisive and clean cut. The rounding of the inside edge of the pipe was nearly non-existent, and the cutter itself stayed sharper and cleaner than most others I've used.

            Great mini pipe cutter
            I ordered this mini pipe cutter to cut everything from copper which is what it is made for. Copper has a hardness of 2.5-3 So if you are carful you can cut 3hardness and under but never anything over 3 in hardness but will cut Copper, lead, graphite and plastic tubing and pipes but be carful with cutting tensions for clean safe cuts This Milwaukee cutter is vary small and thus a big space saver in in the toolbox. this is how I cut plastic pipe type CPVC 1/2 inch in photos

            Good buy
            With the smaller diameter copper lines we have been using, we all of a sudden found out our 1 in. tubing cutters would not work. We bought several 1/2 cutters and they would not cut the cooper either. The Milwaukee 1/2 in. cutter came along and it works on the smaller set lines. It has a proprietary adjustment mechanism that works good with a drop of oil and cuts down to 1/8 inch tubing.

            Great Mini Copper Tubing Cutter
            Need a tube cutter for cutting at least ¾ inch and this one to be durable, sturdy and made of quality products. This has chrome rollers what will help prevent any rust. The adjust knob (Easy Grip Knob) has a two wings on it for better turning the knob when your hands are wet or slippery. The cutting capacity is from 1/8 in to 1 1/8 in. It comes with an extra blade and it does not take any tools to change the blade. Comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
