    I wonder if Milwaukee will take a Pipecat in trade.



    That would save some athritis growth in my hands as well.

      i don't mean to pick this apart but i have nothing else better to do right now.

      -am i the only one that noticed the carpenter's clamps holding down the copper "tube" in the first clip?

      -does it come with a de-burring tool, or is that extra??

      -according to my instructors at N.A.I.T. there are 3 different classes of copper for plumbing;

      tubing- soft, comes in rolls

      tube- ridgid (aka-pipe)

      pipe-thick walled like steel pipe. ie- sched 40 and so on.

      just wanted to stir it a little.

        Vince that seems like a good point. The clip showed it moving very fast and the head (though not the tool) seemed to shake. If you have to take extra time to secure the work compared to a hand-cutter I wonder how much of the time savings would be lost.

          i'll take on that cordless cutter anytime. give me a ridgid #15 tubing cutter and not a miniature cutter like they compared it to and i'll smoke it.

          plus my batteries keep on going and going and going.

          my hands can get wet, can their tool get wet

          next roundup, i'll put that cordless to it's death.

          bring it on milwaukee, i'm not afraid of 12 volts

            I agree with Rick, The I think most if not all of us can cut just as fast if not faster. Using an imp cutter is slow but if I cant get my regukar cutter into that space I doubt I could get that thing! Just another thing to weight down the tool bag!

                    If it's under a buck fifty I'll buy one.

                    My hand was cramping up last week during a bathroom repipe

                    Looks a little wild and reckless

                    Gotta remember to keep my fingers out of the way

                      Before getting one it would be a good idea to see what other tools Milwaukee has and has in the works that use/will use the same battery.

                      I think their tiny new cordless reciprocating saw will be more useful to many tool users.

                          Re: NEW Milwaukee Cordless Tubing Cutter

                          I used mine today

                          List Price $406.00
                          Purchased Price: (deleted)

                          Pros: Fast , faster , fastest

                          Cons: See list price above, heavy, missing some important features

                          If you do any production work, this is for you. I got a woody when I heard this tool was coming out.

                          You are wrong if you think you can keep up with a Ridgid #15. Rick, that includes you too. Just as fast if not faster than a sawzall.

                          First impressions right out of the box. Heavy, even though Milwaukee says it's lightweight to reduce fatigue. Not compared to their other micro tool line. Weight sometimes equates to quality but not always.

                          Has a funny smell when it runs. Not like new tool smell more like swamp water smell. They way a tool smells to me means alot. What swamp water tells me I don't know

                          I passed it around today to a few strangers to get their opinion. Every single one put their finger in the cutter wheel and asked me what would happen if they turn it on. "Only one way to find out". Must be like when the waitress brings out your food and says "be careful with this plate it's very hot" what's the first thing you do?...touch the plate.

                          I suspect this thing would be able to rip the nail right off your finger before the right side of your brain tells your hand to let go of the switch.

                          The switch needs a safety. It's too easy to grab the trigger before your ready for the cut. Maybe I'll get used to it after a few more days.

                          It performed well. With the 14" lenth I was able to reach into tight corners over and behind a water heater I would never have gotten to with any other cutter.

                          I got it wet. I mean really wet. No effect on performance. Shook the water out and kept going

                          Over $400 dollar price tag and it didn't come with a spare blade. Looks like it takes a special Milwaukee blade. Even the cheapest cutter made in China comes with a spare blade. With this being the first tubing cutter made by Milwaukee maybe they didn't know. If this one breaks and I have to wait a week to get another blade I'm going to be pissed

                          Improvements that can be made:
                          (Ridgid are you listening?...you're next, right?)

                          Reduce the weight by at least a half pound
                          Add a safety for the trigger
                          Clearance to other objects is 1-1/2". Lower that to 1" and you've got a tool I'll use everywhere
                          Toss in a spare blade
                          Having it clipped to my belt would have been nice. Kept having to bend over and pick it up off the floor.
                          For those of us that ream our pipes a reamer would have been a nice feature also.

                          More updates as I find them..............

                              The reamer Crack...What are you looking for to make it part of the tool?
                              Thank you for the review.
