Will this cut CPVC

Asked by daveR February 25, 2021
2
Answers

Yes. I bought this a week ago and used it on 1/2" CPVC tubing that was located in an area with very limited space. It made clean cuts and very easy to use.

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

Use a very small thin bladed screw driver. Get in between the post and the ring. Cover with your hand because most likely that E-Ring will go flying.

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.

First and foremost the product was made in the United States of America! It was not overpriced compared to the foreign-made jobs. This product is made by Rigid it is a three-quarter inch Close Quarters tubing cutter catalog no. 32985 model No. 104 made in USA .I used it for cutting 3/16" steel brake line and 3/8 steel line gas line on my car it worked great. Even though the standard cutter wheel is for copper and aluminum ( cat. No. 33185 / model no. E - 3469). It didn't seem to dull it because I cut copper after that. There is also another cutter wheel for soft flexible plastic available ( cat no. 33200 / model no. E - 1740). I've also cut 1/2" copper when I replace the faucet and toilet in my bathroom. The only thing I noticed that it didn't have was a Reemer attached to it. It's Much more compact and able to get into Close Quarters then a standard tubing cutter. Rigid manufacturing you did it again for me excellent product I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. This is a great addition to my toolbox. Thanks again. I hope you enjoyed my review of this excellent product.

It's the classic, more compact than the new fangled thing offered along side, as easy to use as the full size one for a few cuts in a repair situation, as soon as I started in on the repair I found the old one with other stuff I had to go find, so I suppose it's too easy to misplace. This one is well enough aligned that I can go round and round and it stays in the original groove instead of making a spiral scratch on the pipe. We are supposed to go back and fourth to stay in the cut and on my old full sized unit it's the only way

This cutter worked really well, making nice clean cuts. I cut 1/2"-3/4" copper pipe, 3/4" PEX, 1/2" CPVC, and 1/2" PEX with it, and it worked well for all. Just make sure to adjust it tighter on each turn. I've only had the tool for a couple weeks. (View in my picture is the backside of the cutter.)
