    Tubing cutters aren't very difficult for use. The only way they can be misused is if they're tightened too hard and disform the tubing, or if they aren't rotated the full distance around the tubing. Cleaning of the cutters is fairly simple, WD-40 can be used to clean them and keep them well lubricated. The most important thing to remember is to wipe any water off of the rollers, cutting wheel and turn screw after they've been used, especially if they've gotten wet. The housings of the cutters don't corrode, but the other parts do. For repair, Ridgid has blow-up diagrams of the tools so dissassembly can be easily done.
