  • RIDGID 15 vs. Milwaukee M12

    I originally planned on creating one highlight video of the entire ordeal but had to resort to just posting 6 different clips of the entire drama.

    The banter back and forth is well worth watching the videos.

            Congratulations to Rick.

            I do think that Ben could have easily won if he hadn't went all "German" on the pipe trying to make all the cuts the same.

              I got a question? You put two great Pro's up against eachother, what would have happened with a layman using the milwaukee cutter against the pro?
              What if the batteries didn't quit? I think this calls for a redo! Maybe to spice things up you could get some pretty girl to go up against Rick? Bet he'd be sweating so much that copper would slip in his hands.

                Ben basically was a lay person as he had only handle a similar cutter for a few minutes earlier in the day. After about 50-cuts or so I think Ben started to take Rick. Had the battery lasted a little longer Rick was already spent. Either way we all had a great time that night and I would love to attend the next competition.

                  Mark, if you folks ever decide to hold a competition in my hometown in CT, I'd love to compete. I'm thinking four inch deck screws into a treated post. Any person of your choice using a hand screwdriver, against me and my Ridgid 18volt screwdriver or impact. All kidding aside, good as Rick and other Pros are, that milwaukee tool is pretty impressive.

                  I'm sort of laughing to myself, imaging some time in the distant future when the power fails and folks are forced to pick up the hand tools. I remember years ago preparing for a big cable placing job in the South Bronx. I can't remember the reason but we were forced to use star drills instead of the usual Hilti's. Don't get me wrong we used star drills on infrequent occassions, but this was a big job and afterwards our hands and forearms were real sore. Hope Rick doesn't suffer any lasting damage.

                    I learned something today how to cut copper with my Milwaukee copper cutter by holding it up side down it cuts evertime but when I hold it upright the cutter just spins without grabbing the pipe and cuttiing it, so what is the little window and light in the up right position for as it is supposed to be to see the pencel mark you would cut it to as the booklet that came with it was rubbish.
