  • Copper de-burring tool

    Do they make a hand tool to de-burr the inside of a cut section of copper tubing? And also simultaneously remove any raised ridge on the outside of the pipe.

    I have been using the pointed thing on the end of my tubing cutter but it seems there mus be a better way.

    On the rigid cutters if I did have to deburr a pipe I just use what's attached to the cutters. I have ran copper for many years and still do, I never have to deburr the copper, I just cut, clean, sweat and I am done.

      Yes they do but the are bulky and a pain to use. I would deal with the occasional burr on the outside of the pipe as they happen but use a Rothenberger reaming tool on every joint. Reaming is required under every code and prevents velocity erosion and unwanted noise.

        Not that I'm aware of. A good mill file will take care of the external ridge.

                  a good 1 wheel tubing cutter such as the ridgid #15 will prevent outside ridges and burrs. that's the purpose of the rollers. a 4 wheel cutter is not a cutter for fabb work. it leaves an inner and outer ridge.

                  i have a deburring tool that works on 1/2''-2'' copper that doesn't produce any scrap shards to fall into the pipe. it uses 2 little pin rollers that actually roll the copper back onto itself. also good for re-rounding soft copper.

                  i believe it's made by atlanta specialty co.

                      They do make what I call a pencil reamer,about 6"long with a replacable blade on the end,works on the inside of any size pipe.We get them at the supply house.

                              Not a bad idea....I'd imagine it would be easy to get carried away with that setup though lol.
