  • Pipe rounder

    Looking for a "pipe rounding tool". Resembles pipe cutter w/large wheels on bottom and also a large flat wheel on top, versus the cutting wheel.
    The tool is used for correcting small ovalities with metal pipe, so that the corrected pipe may accept fittings again. Do you have any knowledge of such an animal?

      I'm just curious, is this an actual machine you have seen or something you think might be available? The reason I ask is that it seems like an awful lot of trouble to go through to reround the end of a piece of steel pipe. The power involved to do this would lead me to believe that this would be a pretty expensive machine.

      All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

        This is only a hand tool, nearly identical to the cutter, we have used them in the oil and gas industry for changing the ovality of very ductile carbon based tubing.
