Rather than try to sharpen the existing cutting blade I got a replacement that is a direct swap and identical to the original. The swap took less than a couple of minutes and back to cutting PVC cleanly.
I've had my Ryobi PEX & PVC cutter nearly a year now. Since I'm in the process of replacing all of the plumbing in my home, it's gotten a lot of use. I used to use a ratcheting hand held tube cutter for this job. But that's so obsolete now that I have this tool.
I've cut all the PEX and loads of PVC for the drains, fast and easy (safely) and my blade has barely dulled. Even if it should dull, I now have a replacement blade from Ryobi and changing it out is as fast and easy as cutting the tubing. A simple push of a button releases the blade from the lock and you simply slide in the new blade till you hear it click lock. As a precaution, I remove the battery first.
If you're cutting tubing by hand, you want this tool.
The PVC cutter blade that goes on the PVC/PEX cutter is an easy blade to switch out. The first step is to fully open the blade on the cutter with the release button. It is the button on the right side above the main trigger. Once the blade is open, depress the blade release button just at the base of the blade. While holding it, pull the old blade out. Reverse the steps with the new blade and you are back in business.
If you haven't tried the cutter, you are missing the easiest way to cut PVC and to trim it. With the old hand cutters, if you need to trim just a small piece off, it can be very tricky. With this power cutter, it simply cuts whatever size piece you need, including very small shims.
The Ryobi 2" PVC/PEX Cutter Replacement blade is easy to replace . Just push the button (white on side) to raise the blade to the upright position and then and then (the black) up near the blade to release the old blade. Holding the button down , slide the new blade in until it lines up with the locking pins and then release the black button and your ready to cut pipe again . I do think they should include instructions with the blade as it took me a few minutes to figure it out. But as dense as i am in this department , i did finally figure it out .
