    Re: Pipe Reaming

    For a mechanical room with a lot of fittings and room for a table, these are nice and not just for reaming.

      Re: Pipe Reaming

      My boss has one of these, I just haven't had a chance to use it yet. It would be nice for 1.5" and 2" though. I got carpal tunnel syndrome when i worked at a factory, then I was a bungalow buster, and cut a lot of tube by hand. Just a couple of hand cuts and the old carpal tunnel comes roaring back.

        Do you really need to ream the pipe?
        Buy cheap, buy twice.

          No, it's just to dress up the o.d. of the tube.

            Same here man, but I have used a step drill before. Ridgid copper prep machines are awesome for production work as well, we had one at the first company I worked for.

              Yes, it helps reduce friction and roil and makes the pipe and joint last longer. Not to mention the codes requiring it.
