  • Ridgid 150 VS 15 tubing cutter?

    I'm a hobbyist home owner and can't deside which one is better. Might have to buy both. What is the opinion of the pro's? Is one way better then the other?

    the cutter i've relied on for literally 100,000s of cuts is the #15. cuts up to 1.25'' od. / 1'' copper tubing.

    but i also use it all the time for 1.25'' brass tailpieces tbe.

    never really cared for the 150.

    but i do use the 151 and 152-p all the time. great cutters. even have the 156 6.25'' capacity.

    phoebe it is

      I have 2 Ridgid #150 cutters that I use a LOT. 1 is in my always-with-me hand tool bag and the other is in my soldering kit. I also have a #15 in my soldering kit. When I am doing a lot of soldering 1/2"-3/4" copper, I use the #15.

      The reason I have the #150 in my hand tool bag is that it can cut up to 1.5" tubular (which I do a lot) as well as make smaller cuts. I use and abuse it and it has never failed me.

      I also have a 151 and 152 that I use for bigger pipe. I use the 151 for 1"-1.5" copper. I have the plastic wheel for the 152 that I swap out if I need to make a precision cut on PVC and have space to spin it.
