Q:Which size should I buy for cutting 1/2" CPVC?
by|Apr 9, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello, 1/2 CPVC pipe will have an outer diameter of nearly 7/8". The Model 103 will not be large enough. We would suggest using a blade type cutter such as the model PC1375.

    Q:Will this work with cutting 1” emt conduit?
    by|Nov 29, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The model 101 Close Quarter Tubing Cutter is designed and tested to cut tubing up to an outer diameter of 1.125”. 1” EMT conduit has an O.D. of 1.163”. We would not recommend the 101 for this application. The smallest tubing cutter that we can recommend for 1” EMT is the Model 20 Tubing Cutter.

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi, we would need to know the thickness of the tubing. As long as it isn't more than the blade exposure for the cutting wheel, then yes it should. If you need more assistance and would like to talk to someone further, please call us at 844-789-8665.

        Ridgid Close Quarters Tubing Cutter
        I recently purchased a Ridgid 1” Close Quarters Tubing Cutter. It comes with a spare wheel. This Ridgid cutter is capable of cutting between 1/4” and 1 1/8” thick tubing. At the present time for the project that I am working on I only need it for cutting a 1/2” plastic coated copper gas line. I have a Generac Centurion backup generator and I needed to run a new 1/2” gas line to it. I dug my 18” trench and buried the new line, then cut the line with the Ridgid tube cutter close to the unit where it is stubbed out of the ground. Now I just need to get a couple of fittings to connect it up to the tank and generator. This Ridgid tube cutter makes for an easy and quick clean cut. It is also designed to be used in tight spaces. I highly recommend it.

        I decided to buy a new tubing cutter rather than replace the cutting wheel in my old, off brand cutter. This cutter is better made. One problem I've had in the past is that when cutters wear, or are not made well, they cut a spiral in the surface of the tubing. This one cuts straight and easily. I used it to cut the new steel brake lines for my 1959 Ford Fairlane.

        Quality product
        First time for me having to cut copper pipe to install my new Rheem water heater. I probably could have picked a cheaper cutter, but liked the design and felt this one would probably be more solid and last for years. Cut the pipe easy as expected and the small size would allow me to do other jobs if needed. Just follow the directions and watch a few YouTube videos if its your first time using one of these.

          Worked great for my tiny space, just a little more spinning on CPVC than I would have hoped.

            Tool Broken on First Use
            I purchased this tool online and had just received it. Had a 1" older stainless steel pipe to cut. Made a score in the pipe and about 1/2 of the way through the cutting, a very important piece on the tool snapped and broke. I was unable to use it at that point and ended up completing the cut with a hacksaw. To me, it was clearly faulty manufacturing. There is nothing about using this on an older pipe so this should not have happened. I plan to return it for either a replacement or my money back, but the tool did not function to my satisfaction.

              Cuts like a beast.
              Used it to cut 1/2 inch Type L CTS and 3/4 black iron pipe. The copper was like popping open a pixie stix. The iron pipe took more, but this thing sliced through it without complaint.

                It works in places you can't get to with anything else which makes this an essential tool. Ridgid tools are sturdy and last until I loose it or it gets stolen.
