    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.

      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.

        Q:How does it cut the pipe which way do you turn
        by|Mar 8, 2019

        Answer This Question

        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.

        by|Mar 12, 2019

          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.

          by|Mar 12, 2019

            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.

            by|Mar 11, 2019

              A:  you turn it either direction, the cutter whell is spring loaded.

              by|Mar 8, 2019

                A:  It is self tightening just follow the arrow

                  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.
