  • Ridgid 15 tubing cutter with 2 or 3 wheels

    Ridgid should introduce a no. 15 tubing cutter similar to the no 2 a pipe cutter with 3 wheels or the no 42 A with four wheels.These cutters are great, where a full rotation with the cutter is imposible. Instead of having to use a midget tubing cutter, a no 15 with more than one wheel would be a great cutter to have for copper work.This would be a much quicker cutter to use and not to mention more comfortable. It would also not hurt the midget tubing cutter line because they will never be replaced.

    THE PROBLEM WITH USING A TUBING CUTTER WITH MULTIPLE WHEELS AND NO ROLLERS ARE A FEW: #1 IT IS MORE LIKLEY TO TRACK , BUT THAT'S NOT TO CRITICAL AS YOUR NOT ROTATING IT ALL THE WAY AROUND. #2 THE LACK OF ROLLERS WILL CAUSE THE BURR TO FOR ON THE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE CUT. YOU WILL THEN HAVE TO REAM BOTH INNER AND OUTTER SURFACES.#3 THE WHEELS WILL BREAK MUCH FASTER AS THE ROLLERS ARE NOT THERE TO HELP IN ALINGING THE CUTTER.
    THERE ARE A NUMBER OF CUTTERS OUT THERE THAT DON'T REQUIRE A FULL TURN, ROTATION OF THE HANDLE FOR CLEARENCE. DUBBY MAKES A 4 WHEEL PLIER TYPE CUTTER THAT WILL WORK UP TO 1'', BUT YOU NEED A PRETTY GOOD GRIP TO SQUEEZE 1''. ALSO I HAVE A RATCHETING STYLE THAT WORKS GREAT. IT'S ABOUT THE SIZE OF A #15 AND WILL RATCHET WITH LIMITED SPACE. GENERAL MAKES A RATCHETING MIDGET THAT USES A REMOVABLE HANDLE THAT I BELIEVE COMES IN BOTH 1/2'' AND 3/4''.
