Why doesn’t it work follow directions but won’t even break the surface of a 3/8 inch copper pipe

Miguel, I think you are right because I noticed the package was already opened when I bought it at Lowe’s 

Hi, Can you kindly provide some instructions for how to remove and replace the blade for close quarters tube cutter 40617? I feel like such an idiot not being able to figure it out!

Will this cut chrome plated copper?

Asked by Rich February 7, 2020
5
Answers

Yes, I would judge that you can cut chrome-plated copper. There is going to be increased wear but the soft underlying tubing will be crushed causing the chrome to break perhaps rather than be cut.

Replacement wheel? What one can I use to replace a broken wheel?

I presume you mean cast iron. Cast iron is done with a snap vise or cutter.

At first I bought the Home Depot brand cutter because I didn't want to pay $25 for a tubing cutter that I would only use a few times. But the first time I tried using the Home Depot brand cutter it literally broke in half. So after that experience I decided to spend the money because of the copper tubing I had to cut. It had to be clean and straight and I only had one shot at it. This thing worked perfectly. Now I have it in case I need to cut any more copper, except for the fact that all I use now is PEX LOL Anyway, I highly recommend this product, it's well worth the price.

First, I'm a female who needed to have a water shut off valve repaired due to it leaking when turned off. I called a plumbing company and they quoted me $800 to $1,000 to replace shut off valve and put in a new toilet I bought. I thought "no way - I'll do it myself!" I watched you tube on replacing shut off valve and then on setting a toilet. I was really to tackle it. Well, I couldn't get the old valve off so I ran to Home Depot and bought this cutter. It worked perfectly and I replace the water shut off valve all by myself!! Getting ready to set new toilet next!

For me the Ridgid #101 Tube Cutter is a back saver. Long Story short, running electrical wire almost 400’ through underground conduit proved to be more difficult than it should have been. I ended up digging three holes in difficult, dry, compacted clay. I was able to easily cut the PVC tubing and access the wire and advance my cause without digging deeper. Happy is an understatement. I would have surely damaged the wiring if I had used a hack saw or other type of cutter. This cutter is well constructed, guaranteed, easy to use, and even comes with a replacement blade. It is at least professional grade and of the quality one has learned to expect from the Ridgid Brand. Great Tube Cutter, Ridgid.

Just purchased and only used one time so far for a test. Re-piping under house and wanted to be sure it worked before crawling down there. Good clean cut on 1" copper with minimal burr to ream out. For the knuckleheads complaining that the "included spare cutter" is missing; Unscrew the handle. For the knuckleheads at Rigid; tell the knucklehead users it is under the handle.
